Steve Weiss Music

Steve Weiss loved playing the drums as a small child, but never imagined in a million years that he would have a career in music, let alone a pioneering and successful career in the music products industry. In 1965, he formed Steve Weiss Music in Philadelphia and soon became one of the leaders in the early development of percussion rental companies and the selling of rare percussion products such as African bells and Indian chimes. Steve’s personal interest in gongs and his years of research on the instruments resulted in him becoming one of the world experts on gongs.
