Accessory Mounting Options for Marching Drums

As the level of creativity in the marching activity continues to rise, we also find ourselves looking for ways to be more creative with the orchestration of marching drumline parts.  One way to do this is to incorporate auxiliary percussion sounds into the musical score by attaching accessories to marching snares, tenors and bass drums.  This makes it possible to add cowbells, jamblocks, tambourines, ribbon crashers, crash cymbals and hi-hats to your drums.  With a little work and possibly some drilling, you can even add bongos, doumbeks and other drums.
Here’s a list of the accessory mounts we’ve found are the most popular and most dependable for mounting other instruments to the drums to help you achieve that next level of creativity in your marching percussion section.
