Stock Up on Percussion Accessories

Marching percussionists go through marching accessories like there’s no tomorrow. Sticks, mallets, drum heads, practice pads – they all take a beating from the constant drumming and playing during practice, rehearsals and performances.

Stocking your music program with high-quality percussion accessories will help you save money in the long run. Better products will last longer, especially when your students know the proper way to care for and store their accessories when not in use. It’s not worth skimping on quality just to save a small amount of money by buying inferior products—you’ll pay more in the long run. Percussion accessory companies like Yamaha, Evans, Promark and Vic Firth make consistent products that will fit right in with your program and accentuate performance. Mallets
