Making Beato Bags for the drumming and percussion community, producing Beato’s Blog, creating and performing music with my friends and renown artists, and launching Beato Band and our first CD with my long time, dear friend and brother, the amazing talent, David Pack, underscores my excitement for everything Beato today, tomorrow and for years to come.
Pride in craftsmanship and a lifetime warranty are the professional hallmarks of Beato. Every product is handcrafted with a sense of duty, obligation and responsibility to the drumming community. It is with a true love and devotion to this industry that we commit to continue innovation and the pursuit of perfection.
Truly that was my intention in 1982 and looking towards 2015, it continues to be true today. The journey has been for me like the Beatles’ tune, “The Long and Winding Road,” from the early 80’s when my dear friend, Bob Yeager, owner of the Professional Drum Shop in Hollywood, CA insisted that I name my new company Beato.
Through the earliest days, it has been because of the love and support from friends like Joe Porcaro, Jeff Porcaro, Joe Loria, Steve Zamarripa, and the artists and fellow drummers that I have crossed paths with through the years who have supported and believed in me and my product that Beato is here today. They have my gratitude and loyalty for being behind me all the way.
Honestly, I feel from the bottom of my heart that Beato Bags, manufactured here in Huntington Beach, CA, are better than ever! I have survived the demise of manufacturing in America and the Chinese sweat shop sewing machines. I no longer fear them because I know that I have the goods.
Beato Bags is at the top of its game! We have emerged from the struggle victorious. Not by changing our product or by compromising on the quality of our materials or craftsmanship. But by sticking with our basic tenets and making the kind of products that drum and percussion artists insist on, demand and really require: quality goods at a fair price that perform. Beato bags continue to be one of the best investments a drummer or percussionist makes to insure the protection of their instruments. And Beato is committed to that purpose.
