Skyliners Unveils New Battery And Front Ensemble Equipment

| |

skyliners_100x100The Skyliners proudly unveiled their new battery and front ensemble equipment in 2016, and plan continued growth for the 2017 season!

For the front ensemble, the quality of the Pageantry synthesizer and mixer cart is purely top of the line. The sound system includes an M-audio 48 synthesizer, all new microphones, cables, amplifiers, speakers, and a digital mixing board. Ryan Reed, the Front Ensemble Arranger, brought a whole new sound and sophistication, including electronics, amplification, and the unique use of iPads to add another element of excitement and entertainment to The Skyliners.

The Skyliners’ battery is playing a brand new set of Ludwig Ultimate Percussion marching drums. These are designed specifically to meet today’s marching demands. Ludwig was chosen due to their redesign of the equipment, and the new creative team who have brought past knowledge from other companies to bear on their new designs. For the snare, the design features include the Free-Floater model. The tenor drums include what Ludwig calls a “diagonal cut for the “Ultimate” in projection, tone, and durability.” Their bass drums are built for power and resonance.


The Skyliners’ Percussion Section is fully equipped to elevate their level of performance, and bring an even richer and more resonant sound to their productions.
