World’s Most Accurate Drummer Contest

| |

Drum Corps International is giving fans the opportunity to test their percussion skills this summer as part of the World’s Most Accurate Drummer contest presented by Beatnik Rhythm Analyzers. Anyone can take a hack at this free competition kicking off at the DCI Eastern Classic in Allentown, Pa. July 7 and 8, and continuing at the Atlanta and Indianapolis major events and at the World Championships at Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, Calif. this August.

The Beatnik Rhythm Analyzer for percussionists from OnBoard Research, is a training aid designed to help percussionists build solid rhythm fundamentals through the development of consistent timing. The electronic pad sits on a built-in metronome, as users simply start the playback feature and strike the touch-sensitive practice pad. An electronic screen measures each stroke and the time it occurred in relation to the beat of the metronome. Analyzers can detect accuracy up to the nearest 512th note.
