"I have known Eric for over 20 years and when I heard he had started a company, I immediately searched him out. I first saw the products at PASIC 20 years ago and have been a fan of his work ever since. I have played Black Swamp tambourines for a number years and it is by far the best instrument on the market! The thing I love most about the company is that it has improved EVERY SINGLE YEAR of its existence. I am proud and honored to be a part of the forward thinking Black Swamp family. Tim and Eric do a terrific job and I will be a part of this company as long as I play music. Bravo Black Swamp!"
