    1% = 1 out of a hundred

    .01% = 1 out of 10,000
    I’m a math dummy. I was using a number to illustrate that this is a goofy argument.

    It’s goofy using your math. Just busting your chops.
    I’m guessing you meant one out of a hundred. I really believe percussion is just a piece of the business of many of those companies and they couldn’t survive by only their percussion revenue. I think a company like Wurlitzer is a stretch altogether. Lots of companies means competition and new ideas. I’d like to see a list of what each company makes and what I’ve managed to live without for all these years.

    While I admittedly didn't read the list, I'd imagine that there are a large number of "custom drum companies" that popped up making kits with colored hardware and keller shells in the early 2000's(Epiarch comes to mind), most of which are obviously no longer in business. I'd think that most of those companies couldn't have produced more than a handful of kits over their lifespans. Could be why the number is so high.

    Kansas City Drum Works became Kansas City Drum Company, and the owner just retired a year or two ago, so they no longer exist. But I guess the list did say "make or MADE" drum stuff.

    I see the Synsonics brand name, but I was hoping to see the manufacturer: Mattel.

    Without this, the list is trash.

    Kingston was my first full-size drum set... the hihat stand would not stand on it's own, so I leaned it against the second bass drum.

    The guy who made this is only counting drum companies. Cymbals are not included.

    So is Zildjian listed because Noble & Cooley put their name on a drum?
