George Way is a legendary figure in American drum manufacturing who worked with Leedy, Slingerland, and Leedy & Ludwig before starting his own drum company in the mid 1950's. Over 60 years later Ronn Dunnett, another prominent innovator, acquired trademarks for the brand and began making vintage-styled instruments with modern updates in honor of George Way.
