Being in a marching band takes patience and strength to stand, march and play all at the same time. Of course, putting on a flawless performance also requires a degree of comfort, which is why every member of a marching band needs to choose their carrier carefully. Whether you play the snare, tenor or bass drum, you'll find a wide variety of marching carriers that are designed to keep you fully in control of your instrument. In fact, respected drum companies like Dynasty, Ludwig, Pearl and Premier put as much time and effort into their marching carriers as they do their drums, and they can all be found here.
So what percussion instrument do you play in marching band? That will be the deciding factor in which carriers you should take a closer look at it. For example, snare players have plenty of options ranging from top-selling slings like the Ludwig LF-382 to rugged formfitting carriers like the popular Pearl CX AIRFRAME. Or, if the tenor is your drum of choice, go with the Mapex Qualifier Tenor Carrier. Like the snare carriers mentioned, this one is solidly-built yet very lightweight. Additionally, its contours and white finish make it practically unnoticeable whether it's worn over or under most uniforms.
Now, if you're a marching bass drummer, you have more than enough carriers to choose from as well. The Premier Bass Drum T-Bar Carrier is the original aluminum marching harness and its comfort and flexibility continues to make it a number 1 choice amongst marching groups around the globe. Or, if it's something more simple and affordable that you want, try the Ludwig LF-350 Bass Drum Sling. Featuring heavy-duty sliding buckles and made from nylon web material, this sling will provide you with plenty of support during your battery performances.
And along with the models mentioned, you'll find other popular-selling slings and carriers too. There's carriers for marimbas and xylophones, glock and cymbal straps, and even carrying hooks and back support belts. You already have the talent to play the instrument itself - all you need now is the right carrier to ensure your time in the drumline is a pleasant experience, and you've obviously come to the right section for that.
