Our thoughts are with the people of Texas, our Associates, and customers
Now Category Director for Percussion Accessories and Band & Orchestra, Jordan Barth began his Guitar Center career six years ago as an Assistant Category Manager for Drums and Percussion. A drummer of more than 25 years, Barth began his musical journey when he found his grandfather’s practice drum pad as a kid and started playing along with the radio, before being introduced to classic rock by his parents. He loves the musical instrument industry, as well as helping people find the gear they’re looking for. Barth is currently on the search for a new kit of his own, “It’s about time for a new drum set … still haven’t decided what I want yet though, ha!”
