What about not releasing recaps to the unwashed rabble?  That lasted one year.

Love the irony that the same crowd who gets all moist reminiscing about "getting my face melted off" by brash, loud G Bugle lines are now deeply concerned about hearing damage for everyone because of the volume.

"Gets all moist" and "deeply concerned about hearing damage for everyone" are your editorial words.

Can't speak for anyone else here... but I'm fine with acoustic loud. Including B-flat loud.  Carolina Crown in 2009 and 2013 in particular, Cadets in 2007... those horn lines pinned me to the wall.  Among other examples of the any-key era.

But I'm not a fan of "artificial" loud. Scrap the sideline microphones... let those young performers play.

OK, let me sharpen my knife and we'll split it again.

It was an example of something they brought to Finals week - obviously no small test market - and bailed on it in a quick moment.

Frankly, my weak example is the only one i remember - EVA! 

Yea, I give.  Your point stands.

just because a mic is there doesn't mean its always on.

non-responsive.  shotgun mics are only there to capture the full ensemble.  70-80 brass players need no amplification.  if you remove them there's no need to worry about whether they're turned on or not.  

if you can't play FFF with good tone quality,  you shouldn't be faking it with amplification.  

as i have posted many times,  just eliminate wireless mics entirely.  limit mic placement to "in front of the front-sideline".   you can still amplify small ensembles and soloists.  you will have far better sound quality at a lower cost (wired is much better sound).  and most of the "tech issues"  evaporate because corps just won't care about the  crowded wireless environment in which they're performing.

I bought a couple of pairs of earasers the other day. 

Did they come in a brightly neon colored box?   Cause the packaging should be at least as loud as the commercials.

Hey, I was watching Ghostbusters (the original) the other day and you know that porn music on Flo?  That’s from that movie.
