Alex Ruisch hit me up and wanted to get some GT-1 Spectrums, so of course we hooked him up. But before I sent them out he wanted me to give them to Sourmash so he could have some custom painted tamas that matched. And as you can see Mash fucking killed it! These things just look so amazing. I’m stoked to say these are from Jake and my company, our good homie painted them and they are going to a legend. Enjoy them Ruisch!
Last night we released 40 of our new Full Hickory GT-1 completes. These featured an unpainted Natural tama. We decided to go with the no gloss because of how well the prototypes were breaking in. So hopefully you were able to snag one and if not. There will definitely be more in the future.
We got some sweet buttons made and they are up on the site now. 3 buttons, 2 GT sticks. $5. Can’t go wrong with that. Rep GT in style.
Ballard put together this awesome piece on “Iji”. KROM’s newest pro from Japan. He has that Dave Mateo dancing swag going on. This is a totally new style of kendama that you don’t really see very often. It’s amazing to see the Japanese and Worldwide scenes merging, only great things can come from everyone coming together as a global community. Nice work on the chop Ballard and stoked to see more from Iji.
This is too rad! The dude in all white with the big ass Yo Yo on his chest is killing it.
Sourmash just came out with his own full kendamas! I’m so stoked for the homie. He also redesigned his store and it’s looking better then ever. Now when you buy an epic Sourmash tama you get a dama with it, can’t argue with that. So go check out his new store and support an OG in the dama game.
Bryan Hansen just put out this sweet little promo of some wormhole trickery. It’s so rad to actually have people finally playing our damas and making videos of them. Thanks for the support BHC!
20 years playing kendama. 2 jumbos kendamas and no string. This is the result. This is part 2/4 in the series be sure to check out the first if you haven’t. Stoked to see the 2 remaining parts.
Kris is easily one of the top players in the US right now. If you didn’t know already go check out his other edits.
If you didn’t know already Haley Bishoff is the new Tribute member! Congrats to Haley and I’m hoping that her being on Kendama USA will get more girls into kendama. She is a rad person and really rips at dama. The “dama fam” is happy to have a new member as well.
