Default Re: Pipe Band Drumming vs Other Style

It's apples and oranges of course, two different styles with different types of drums. Those guys are all pros and they could do either style, I'm sure.

A drumming style I really like and I'd like to see done more widely is the rope-tension Fife & Drum style.

Here's the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing Band using rope-tension drums; skip to 7:00 to see and hear the drums

Here's the US Army Old Guard. Until I saw the 3rd MAW band I thought only the Army used rope-tension drums.

If you want something REALLY different here's Bulgarian drumming, first solo, then accompanying a tune in 15/8 (Buchimish)
