  1. Silent Brass Systems

    Yea, I've heard this. He just wants the opportunity to get in extra work in his dorm in late hours. What I can't figure out is if a trombone mute will also work with baritone. In a very short period of time he'll be prepping Cavaliers audition work while also having a full plate at school on trombone.
  2. Silent Brass Systems

    Does anyone here have hands-on experience with silent brass systems for marching baritones? My son wants one for his trombone at college, and I'm curious if the same unit will work with a baritone when he gets back into DCI audition season.
  3. 20 straight years for each as they enter their last Prelims tonight. I don't care what Corps we're discussing...that's simply amazing! Congrats Gents! Make your last DCA Finals your BEST DCA Finals!
  4. 2018 Prediction Thread

    With the retention I'm hearing about from Cavaliers MM's and staff...I don't see them tumbling down to 7. Lots of good post-season vibe coming out of Rosemont.
  5. ....Make us proud. You know what to do! Can't wait to see you tonight!
  6. 2017 Rankings

    74+ ... hard to hear the PA
  7. Atlanta CV just lit this place up...

    Hard to hear because of applause ...but thought the announcer said 92.7. Well done CV!
  8. 2017 Rankings

    Atlanta CV just put up a 92.7+ here in Georgia.
  9. Very curious to see the number they put up.
  10. Favorite shows of 2017

    Other than Cavaliers, which of course was my favorite because of that whole "being a parent" thing, my list for entertainment value was: 1. Boston Crusaders 2. Blue Devils 3. SCV 4. Colts 5. Crown
  11. New Mercedes Benz (ATL) Stadium

    Pretty sure that Atlanta's new soccer team, which tied up Grant Field this year and pushed the DCI show to McEachern High School, will be in the new Mercedes Benz stadium next summer. If so, I hope Georgia Tech does get the show. I like outdoor shows better anyway ( unless of course it's raining).
  12. A Drum Corps Fan's Dream Part Tres

    1974 Muchachos or 1975 Scouts. Entire show.

    And there aren't "Jim Ott" clones lining up to the leave the Blue Devils to join staff with a corps ranked in the low teens any more. No mystery what happened to Spirit in 78-80.

    What is the "modern era"? Spirit of Atlanta jumped from 23rd in 1977 to 6th in 1978.
