    SPL Marching Drums Provide a Competitive Edge

    Thousand Oaks, CA - March 2017... Sound Percussion Labs (SPL), designers of quality drums, percussion, and accessories for today's hard-working musicians, has introduced new competition marching drums that enable your marching ensemble to hit the field at full power. These top-quality instruments feature all-birch construction for bright, cutting tone and low-end attack. Hard, dense birch provides an articulate, focused sound that's highly desirable for marching drums. The triple-flange hoops and Remo USA Crimplock® Pinstripe® heads create the open sound, increased sustain, and articulation necessary for high-level competition. All SPL marching drums are available in black or white finishes, and sticks are included.

    Marching Drums 
    For the most drum-configuration options, start with the SPL Birch Competition Marching Tenor Quads. These SPL tenors feature 7-ply all-birch shells for a bright, highly projected sound while maintaining low-end attack-ideal for halftime shows, parades, pep bands, and more. They're available with 6-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch, 12-inch and 13-inch shells. Most companies charge extra for a carrier, but SPL includes a sturdy, rugged, lightweight, T-style carrier free to ensure you can effortlessly carry your marching drums.

    When you want to expand your marching drums, the SPL 6-inch Birch Marching Tenors are an ideal solution. Since all SPL marching drums are modular, you can quickly and easily swap out drums, enabling you to reconfigure your set. No drilling or special tools are needed; simply add the 6-inch tenor (or two) to expand a quad into a quint or even a sextet, using the preconfigured slots on the SPL carrier-or downsize a quint or sextet to a quad with ease.
    If you are ready to go big or go home, opt for SPL's Birch Competition Marching Tenor Sextet, which includes two 6-inch shells, along with 8-inch, 10-inch, 12-inch, and 13-inch sizes. As with the Marching Tenor Quads and Quints, the SPL T-style carrier and sticks are included.
    "Our new marching drums are exactly what you need for a competitive marching ensemble," offers SPL Product Manager Clyde Miller. "We use only top-quality wood and other materials, and we paid attention to details and components that make a difference. The result is great sounding instruments that will hold up under the stress of travel and outdoor performances, show after show."
    SPL Competition Marching Drums are available at Guitar Center, Musician's Friend and Woodwind and Brasswind.com.
