Tycoon Music Co. Ltd. was established in 1983 by entrepreneur Stephen Yu as the first guitar manufacturing facility in Thailand, and within a few years, the company had achieved a significant presence as an OEM guitar manufacturer in markets throughout Europe, Asia, and South America. After making significant investments in R&D, proprietary machinery and employee training, the company began manufacturing hand percussion products on an OEM basis in 1996.

Today, Tycoon Percussion is well-established throughout the world as a leading manufacturer of percussion products, and is the only hand percussion company that wholly owns its own manufacturing facility.
