DCI Championships


2016 DCI Championships

It’s been an exciting drum corps season and the end is almost here. Make sure you make plans to see some of the action next week as all the corps converge on Indianapolis for the DCI World Championships, where Lucas Oil Stadium will be the center of it all. Plus, Indiana residents can enjoy DCI Finals for only $19, and bring two children under 12 for free!

You can find more info on the DCI website. www.dci.org


Come visit us in the Vic Firth booth at DCI


Visit Chops at the Vic FIrth DCI Booth

We’ll be running the Vic Firth booth at DCI, so if you’re attending any of the events inside the stadium, make sure to stop by and say hi! We’ll also have special show pricing on Vic Firth sticks, practice pads, stick bags, t-shirts, and many other items. It would be a great time to try out all the Vic sticks and pads and take something home! www.vicfirth.com

July 2016 News at Chops

Student Equipment Lists


School Supply Lists

For parents with kids in band for the first time, back to school can be quite confusing (especially with a young percussionist at home). Do you, the teacher, have a required list of sticks and mallets for your percussionists to get? We would love to have a copy of that here at Chops. A list of all of your required implements would be a huge help to us and would ensure that your student gets exactly what they need before their first day of band class.

This also helps us with keeping your required implements in stock, so that no child is waiting on sticks or mallets when school starts. I know it’s hard to believe, but the first day of school isn’t that far away. Let’s work together and make sure your student is 100% prepared before they walk into your band room.

Please e-mail your list to chops@chopspercussion.com and we’ll do our very best to make sure we have what your student needs in stock. Thanks for the help and enjoy the rest of your summer!
