New Berlin, WI (PRWEB) March 31, 2015
Music retailer Cascio Interstate Music was presented with two awards in the drum category during the music industry's Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. Cascio received an "Outstanding Dealer Award" from the Zildjian Company based on Zildjian sales and merit, along with an "Outstanding Retailer Award" from Vic Firth Company for Cascio's impressive sales growth achievements in 2014. Though 2014 was a challenging year in the percussion market, Cascio was recognized by these two major drum companies.
Cascio Interstate CEO Michael Houser states, "We are very pleased to receive this national recognition for our Company from two significant drum manufacturers such as Zildjian and Vic Firth. Our commitment to the drum category has been constant for the past 68 years, and is headed up by our Drum Category Specialist and product expert, Scott Thayer. It is extremely gratifying for us as an independent company to earn these major awards in a competitive marketplace.”
