The Music Shipping Company buys Shaw…
William Shaw and Co went into liquidation on February 16th, and we felt that this prominent British brand must not be allowed to disappear. The Yorkshire based company was actually established in 1866. So, whilst we are sorry that a family owned company needed to change ownership, we are very excited about making the UK brand even bigger and better than it was! We have now taken over all manufacture of Shaw Sticks with immediate effect. Stick production will be unaffected by the change in ownership, we will still continue to use the same premium American Hickory and Maple woods etc., and use the existing designs.
The Shaw range features some unique drumsticks that many kit players insist upon.They also have strong support in the Marching and Pipe Band world. After we establish full production on existing Shaw lines, we will be expanding the range to include new exciting and innovative, high quality products.
