This Percussion Plus instrument is a good value marching drum which is sized specifically for the younger player. As a tenor drum it is an instrument which is used to give colour and tone to the marching band sound, with a timbre that cuts through the bass and higher tones very nicely. This model is relatively lightweight at only 3.5kg and comes complete with two rings, sticks and the appropriate sling. It is nicely weighted for marching purposes. Although primarily designed for a traditional marching band it is a drum worth considering in a samba setting too.
