Stephen Yu pioneered conga making in Thailand before it was common and popular. He also created a long list of items, beginning with guitars, for a number of other companies. When it was time for him to branch out and create his own name product line, he found his operations were already up and running, but the name was not known. That was 1984. Today, Tycoon Percussion is one of the world’s largest percussion companies and the largest such exporter in Thailand.
