Morris “Arnie” Lang played percussion for the New York Philharmonic for over 40 years and wrote the book on percussive technique -- literally. Arnie became involved with the music products industry in the 1950s when he began making his own mallets and later snare drums and complete sets. Along the way, he wrote music and method books, and was inducted into the Percussive Arts Society (PAS) Hall of Fame.
