  2. We are looking for something that our son can use at college to practice/improve his mallet skills. He played vibes and marimbas in high school, but won't be doing college marching band. We've looked at malletKATs and xylosynths online, but so far haven't been able to actually try one out. We aren't even sure one of these is the right choice for a practice instrument since they don't exactly replicate the design and feel of a vibe or marimba (or so it appears). He obviously can't put a vibe or marimba in his dorm room, so.... any feedback or suggestions you can give us would be GREATLY appreciated! We're hoping to find someone our son can take lessons from when he's at college, but he needs something to practice on. His ultimate goal is to become good enough to make a world class drum corps.
  3. Percussionists: Please help an old brass player out. I'm normally a trombone/baritone instrumentalist and have played a lot of trumpet, also. I've had a little experience playing drums. I was a Junior in college and they needed 1 more snare (had 9, rank was for 10). I played one football season on snare and barely survived. The next 2 seasons I played bass drum -- really, a lot more fun. This was the old afterbeats/Sousa march style percussion, definitely not Drum Corps. So -- when I listen to a Corps' brass, I'm in familiar territory and think I could assess their ability fairly well. But, listening to today's Drum Corps style percussion, particularly the battery, all I hear is ratatatatatatatatatat (repeat as desired) flam Flam FLam FLAm FLAM FLAM FLAM FLAM ..... BOOM! Yet, here on DCP, there are folks who (allegedly) can pick out subtle difference between Corps X's and Corps Y's drum lines. I know I won't be that good, but I'd like to learn more. What do I listen for? What makes Corps X's battery better than Corp Y's? For those of you who play percussion and have heard the judges' tapes, what do they say pro and con? Inquiring minds want to know. Many thanks!

  8. Since we've had electronics and amplification around for several years, let's discuss it's use in 2014 shows and how effective it was. I figure we can catagorize it in the following uses: Amplifying / Altering traditional DCI accoustic sounds (brass, battery, pic) Amplifying / Altering live voice Use of prerecorded voice Use of prerecorded sound effects Use of synthesized traditional non-DCI instruments (piano, guitar, organ) Use of other traditional synth sounds (bass, synth strings) Any other uses?

  14. Jamie Manning marched with the Boston Crusader's from 1977 to 1979. In 1977 he was a member of the Crusader's snare section at the ripe old age of 12. Despite only being 12 he could well have been the best snare Boston had that year which is not a slight on the other older members he was just that good. 1977 was a very competitive year. The fact that the Crusader's percussion section were able to finish in 12th place despite having an undersized percussion section that consisted of only 5 snares attests to the fact that he was not the only talent in that line. Jamie went on to attend The New England Conservatory of Music and was a student of the late great Alan Dawson for many years. His favorite gig was sitting in for Aretha Franklin's percussionists for a show in Providence R.I. after receiving "an emergency call" just hours earlier. For those of you who know Rudy Gowern Jamie is his Uncle. I have been trying to copy the video of the performance but have not been able to. If your interested you can find it on youtube at Jamie Manning Best drummer in Boston.
