Phantom Knights shared Southern Percussion's post.
1 month ago
New drums for the Phantom Knights membership.1st Mair Drums Taiwan VICTOR series landed in Europe!
And they went to .... Phantom Knights!!
PK Snareline is the first in Europe that yesterday became the new Mair Victor Fibre Series lightweight drums!
Marching Specialist Martijn van derKolk handed over the drums in person to bandmanager Carl Harris in a shiny burning 27 degrees sun in Nuneaton.
The Mair Victor Series are Hybrid drums made with aluminium collar ring and lugs, Carbon top and bottom hoop and a stunning brushed Fibre Shell. Drums mounted and tuned with Remo Whitemax heads.
These components take care off a stunning projection and pitched sound and an incredible light weight!! Drums were delivered with SP Marching Percussion's custom junior mini tube carriers for the perfect fittings to carry.
PK is the second band on Mair instruments in the UK , after we delivered the 1st Mair Royal Series drums to Concord Youth Music last year.
Congratulations Phantom Knights !! May we soon see them approaching the field this year!
