  1. Carolina Crown 2013 finals.
  2. Are those Andalucia Bb sopranos they're using? The bell size gives it away (I always thought those huge bells looked cooler on the field head on than the tiny black dots of regular trumpets). I actually thought it sounded like they were playing on G at first, which is a huge testament to Andalucia. My ear might have been tricked by the instrument looking so much like an old soprano, though. Can't wait to see corps compete with these regardless; huge step in the right direction.
  3. Surprised that they're going with gauntlets and actual layering. I guess I can be optimistic that the entire Top 12 won't be in spandex WGI-style uniforms as I'd expected?
  4. Lol, I knew this take was coming
  5. I do believe most will be in spandex and sans headgear, including Santa Clara Vanguard. I could be totally wrong...and I hope I am. I'm with you though that uniforms don't have a huge impact on my enjoyment of a show (unlike say narration), but they do count for something. I'm sure the members who wear them are affected as well.
  6. What I don't get is why every corps feels the need to go spandex just because the Bluecoats did and won with it. It's not like more than one corps can win! What this does show I guess is that points on the sheets dictate what a corps wears, how their shows are designed, even what instruments they play (even if it were cost effective no one would think of still being on G). If the people calling the shots wanted to, they could dock GE points for (say) not having headgear, or not having crisp, military style uniforms. Sadly that doesn't seem to be the case. I wonder what it would take to see a shift in mentality--maybe declining ticket sales or membership.
  7. Whoops. Mods can go ahead and delete this topic then.
  8. Didn't see a topic dedicated to this yet, and given the rumors of many corps ditching military-style uniforms for spandex this year, there's bound to be some contentious discussion as they start to get revealed. So, share your thoughts on what you've seen, what you want to see (or don't want to see), and what you think we'll see on the field this year uniform-wise.
  9. Interesting that they're making alto horns as well. When was the last time one of those was on the field? I want to say early '90s.
  10. I've been wanting to find this video forever. I should have ripped it while it was still on YouTube, it was a gorgeous arrangement with a gorgeous new mellophone solo.
  11. Yessss. Thought it was gone for good but I guess last year was just a blip!
  12. Did I dream this or was there a rumor the Scouts were switching to the new Andalucia horns for 2017?
  13. It was "Clue." Scrapped for the Ballet for Martha show.
  14. This might be the latest they've announced their show in recent years. The earliest of course was in November 2006, when they announced the 2008 show 3hree, a full 21 months in advance.
