2018 BOA Indy Super Regional Info

Some of the country’s best marching bands will come to Indianapolis this weekend to compete in the BOA Super Regional, presented by Yamaha. Check out the list of competing bands here: https://www.flomarching.com/events/6180440-2018-bands-of-america-indianapolis-super-regional-pres-by-yamaha/entries

This weekend’s regional will give many schools a chance to perform in Lucas Oil Stadium before Grand National Championships next month. The regional is also a great chance for schools that don’t compete at Grand Nationals to perform in a world-class stadium. Many of the performing bands are from right here in Indiana, but we’ll also see bands from all over the Midwest, Oklahoma, and Texas.

If you haven’t been able to get to a marching band contest this year, this weekend is a great time to change that. Best of luck to all competing bands this weekend!

New Product Spotlight – Yamaha Tour Custom Maple

We just got back from Summer NAMM, where Yamaha reintroduced their Tour Custom Maple series, available in five satin finishes and two shell pack configurations.  This mid-level maple kit combines the projection and expressive capability of all-maple shells with the beautiful grain of US maple.

Features:

– 6-ply, 5.6mm thin all-maple shells for a warm, bright tone
– 45 degree bearing edges for tonal depth and quick response
– YESS mounts to minimize contact between the shell and mount
– Inverse (stick saver) Dyna Hoops to control the natural overtones of maple shells
– Absolute lugs
