  1. We beat everyone in drums at least once that summer except SCV. They deserved it. We beat Cavaliers in drums every night on the DCM tour until DCM finals night.
  2. False alarm. Ludwig is slapping a sticker on the System Blue drums and calling them their own now. Call me disappointed.
  3. I can't deny that. The Randall May works well enough. It is just lots of pieces and parts that break over time.
  4. I've used them and it is quality equipment. The biggest downside is the Randall May stuff. The improvements they've made on the drums in recent years are really great.
  5. It isn't hard to find a line of percussion equipment better than the System Blue stuff. It just didn't sound good. As you also mentioned, BD cranks the crap out of their snare drums anyway. You might actually be able to hear the tenor line on the field next season though. I thought the SB tenors were especially weak in their projection.
  6. The same thing that happened to their drum sets. The quality and the brand died years ago. Drum Workshop owns the Slingerland name now.
  7. I'm glad I'm not a Sling subscriber. In their defense however, Sling is a TV service that has sports like everyone else. Sports isn't their sole purposed of existing.
  8. I would just like to understand the credentials and credibility of the article. It is the only blog entry and the author doesn't hav a bio other than stating they are an attorney and a show choir arranger. I would prefer to hear an unbiased opinion with no skin in the game. I'm pretty skeptical on all of this when it comes down to it. I'm a fan of indoor drumlines, marching band and drum corps but I find the whole show choir activity odd and cult like where I live. I also find that show choirs were/still are the last to bother with even caring about music copyright since there is n
  9. Mine renewed about 2-3 weeks before WGI cancelled so I just emailed them to ask for a refund. I'll see what they tell me.
  10. I Haven't tried yet. I just went on the website and it just said my subscription would run out in February of 2021. I suspect they don't want to give the money back but they probably should have to if the content you subscribe for isn't available. I'm certainly not paying 150 bucks a year for something where 2/3 of the reason I have it doesn't exist anymore this year.
  11. For reference, the 9th circuit also ruled on the Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams/Marvin Gaye Estate case over Blurred Lines that basically says you can sue and win simply because the feel and style of a song is similar. Comparing those 2 decisions seems like an interesting gray area on musical copyright.
  12. I was curious what they were going to do. With WGI and now DCI canceled there really isn't a service to subscriber too for that price. Maybe I rejoin when BOA season rolls around if that isn't impacted.
  13. Another plausible scenario that is not clearly defined in the gray area I mentioned.
  14. That may be true but it comes up in the drumline advisory meetings every year for at least 15 years and quickly gets dealt with. The only way they will consider it is if participation drops to dangerous levels and keeps trending downward. This has not been an issue in the drumline activity.
