Leading Drummer Brendan Megoran said: "Closkelt is extremely pleased to join with acoustIQ and I know that we have made an excellent choice in tenor mallets as we await our debut into Grade 1. I know that my mid-section team are already enjoying the quality of the mallets and it has already made a positive impact on the sound and flourishing accuracy. The band is very much looking forward to working with acoustIQ."

acoustIQ said: “It’s been a patient wait for the right opportunity to bring on board our first brand ambassadors and we're delighted that Closkelt Pipe Band made the intelligent choice in sound for their excellent tenor section. World-class drummers deserve to play world-class products and our Grand Slam tenor drum mallets will help them to excel in every aspect of their performance. It’s an exciting time for Closkelt and we are looking forward to supporting them in this new chapter of their history.” @acoustiqmusic.
