(Percussion) Some corps should recruit these kids for their line


Recommended Posts

If you have about 10 minutes and aren't familiar with what high school lines can do, check this out. The new BOA Grand National Champion final run through with a camera following the drum line around.

I realize comparing outdoor and indoor is a little bit apples and oranges, but for percussionists, how does this line compare to someone like Chino Hills?  I wonder how many alumni of this 10-year old program have marched corps, and if any of these young men and women plan to march in DCI once their high school days end.

The ones in the back are commonly called "flubs". Usually flub players are younger members who don't have the chops yet to make the snare or tenor line and they play a less technical part that's more

I remember watching SCV and North Star practice in the lot in Birmingham. Incredible!

Having the flub line definitely makes the whole group better. At least some of those snare and tenor players in Vandegrift's battery probably marched flubs in  past years and were much better prepared

Vandegrift is fabulous. Their concert band is mind blowing.

I’ve never noticed different tenors in a drum line. I like.

Most notable example I can think of is the back half of Star '93

In 1980, SCV used 4 high and 4 low voice tenors:

No offense to tenors, but i hate how high pitched they are. I greatly approve of any voicing experiments.

If you liked that then you should check out Ayala.
