Ronnie Dungan • MMR Global • July 7, 2015

UK drum case specialist Protection Racket has made a significant change to its European distribution network, with Yamaha Europe taking on sole distribution for the range across the continent.

Distribution in the UK will continue to be handled from its Cornwall HQ, but Yamaha will take over from the firm’s network of 37 distributors across Europe.

Wolfgang Csenteri, Product Manager for Yamaha Drums Europe said: “For ten years we have used Protection Racket bags when sending out backline set for our artists in Europe. We have never had one single case of failure, so we know about their prior quality from our own experience. For more than twenty years the company has been a well-known manufacturer for high class instruments bags.

“Protection Racket HQ UK is honoured to have our products distributed in Europe by Yamaha Music Europe GmbH,” said Dean Bowdery, marketing director for Protection Racket. ‘”Together we share an uncompromising commitment to excellence in both our products and customer service. Our partnering continues the expansion of our capabilities in Europe in serving our customers quickly and efficiently.”
