PERCUSSION AND PYRO

PERCUSSION AND PYRO

The amazing pounding of drums and pyrotechnics together were brought to the crowds attending the Edinburgh Military Tattoo this year.

Whilst the team from the Top-Secret Drum Corps from Switzerland have shown their prowess in precision marching and drumming in the past, this is the first time they have included pyrotechnics in the display, much to the delight of the crowds.

The highly technical team usually wear uniforms of black and white with drums and sticks the same. They have been entertaining crowds around the World with their astonishing precision both drumming and marching.

The traditional drum used is the marching snare which in deeper and has a higher tension head (skin) made from either Kevlar or Mylar or indeed a combination of both, which helps to improve the tone of the sound created irrespective of how hard the playing.

Annually, this team creates a fabulous new routine which improve on the display before. This year as well as the exceptional drumming and marching, they added pyrotechnics into the mix. At just after 6 minutes on the following video, the drummers strike their sticks together, and instantly they light up and the line begins drumming again and the flags behind the drumline light up with cascading sparks which sweep around. Beautiful:
