New Blog!

Post by IDMI » Sat Feb 03, 2007 3:00 pm

Hi Everyone,

I know several people were asking me about what the status of our mace project since there hasn't been a more recently updated post on our blog. So please check out http://www.regimentalmaces.com

Hopefully it'll answer a lot of questions and will give you an idea the process taking place.

Thanks for your patience while the project is underway!

This is some VERY exciting stuff. I'll be greatly looking forward to the completion of this modernized regimental mace, so to speak. Keep up the hard work, guys! I'm sure the DM world will be VERY pleased with the end result. I will most definitely be purchasing one in the future.

Thanks everyone for the compliments. We're working really hard and smart to do this project correctly.

I didn't mention it in the blog, but so far for potential mace cases specifically engineered for us, we've got:

Pro Tec (Orange County, CA)- What don't they make?

Glenn Cronkhite (Berkley, CA) - Former head designer for Reunion Blues Gig Bags when they were in San Francisco, prior to moving to China.

We prefer going with an instrument case company since they have a better understanding of how to design and produce cases for valuable instruments. Drum Majoring equipment should be treated the same as instruments, since the equipment is essentially our "instruments"

Thanks for reading!
