  1. Section 341, Row 2, Seat 17. BTW, my first name is Kyle
  2. And the Blue Devils graphic with the Blue Stars logo.
  3. So, they are waiting for a lightening of the lightning?
  4. Do you see line-array speakers as a partial solution? (Could be costly for many corps, I would imagine).
  5. Thanks for that explanation (I hadn't thought of it that way) - if all that was done with the sub-frequencies is what you described, that would be different than actually covering up the tuba sounds. These days, it is probably more of an issue on the streams than in-person problem, although I have heard a few shows live this year that had overpowering "goo" happening. Are you saying that none of the corps are doubling the tuba octave? It sure seems like I am hearing some synth patches that are "boosting" the tuba - or is it just overtones? I agree that it could be a topic unto itself.
  6. On the other hand, I would prefer microphones on tubas to having to listen to thunderous goo.
  7. Well, so much for my inside info on SCV - maybe we'll get to see the ending on Saturday!
  8. A "little bird" told me that SCV is supposed to (finally) have their ending in place, and that they are working on a way to tone down the glare on the tarps. I am curious how that turns out.
  9. I believe you are correct regarding DCI Competitions, but the show I was talking about was the 1975 VFW Nationals competition in LA.
  10. My first year marching (1975), we had a military inspection before a show in LA. Memorial Coliseum. I don't recall ever having one again after that. Side note: I live in WA State, and there is a parade in Ellensburg that still does military-style inspections as part of the judging. Anybody else remember military inspections as part of a drum corps show?
  11. I think that is one of the stronger musical efforts by Cascades in quite a while.
