What are your opinions? I sort of have mixed emotions. At first glance I sort of think "wow, those are cool". Yet as I think longer, I find it somewhat depressing. Mainly out of sentiment. One thing that helped get me interested in marching band and drum corps when I was a little kid was hearing the high school drumline practice around the corner from my house. Battery percussion is one of those "sense triggers" (kind of like the smell of bus fuel LOL) that immediately brings me back to a time when I was first introduced to the activity. I would hate to see the organic make-up of the Battery Percussion Ensemble (i.e. accoustic marching percussion) become obsolete.
Thoughts? Again, probably a topic that has already been discussed at length, but I missed it so here's a new thread. Please humor me.
