Pipe Band Percussion

Three types of drums are used in bagpipe bands - the bass drum, the tenor drum and the snare, or side drum. The bass and tenor are basically the same as used in any marching band. The pipe band snare is somewhat unique in its design. These are set up with very high tension on the head so they are engineered to be quite stout in order to take the stress. You’ll want a practice pad and sticks to begin with the side drum. The “Gaelic Snare Drum Tutor” by Raudenbush gives a very thorough guide to the beginning steps. Alan Chatto has produced a good tutor with recordings. If you have a computer that can play video from CD-ROM Doug Stronach’s “Pipe Band Snare Drum Tutor” can’t be beat.

Hope this assists
