Pun intended. First, Bass drums will be delivered next month as that is the most immediate need of the battery percussion. These Pearl-brand bass drums will complete a partial set already owned by SSHS Band. A careful examination of the current bass drums revealed cracks and splits in four of five drum shells and only two undamaged rims.
After the bass drums order is processed, a subsequent order of tenor drums and snare drums will provide the SSHS Drum Line with awesome equipment allowing the well-worn Yamaha equipment to be retired. A formal retirement ceremony will be scheduled to honor the passing of such dedicated instruments that have served many students and the entire band for nearly a decade. ;-)
