Drums

Just curious to find out what the things are that used to be carried buckled to the side of marching drums. Would anyone know if these can be bought anywhere?

I don't know the answer although common sense would suggest it was a rolled bag in which the drum lived when not in use? Here is a period colourised image which gives another impression.

Thanks, that's what i was thinking they would be used for. Ideally i need one like it in order to store a drum in. I don't really want to use those modern ones at events.

You could try the Marching Band Shop, which I think is based in Poole, Dorset, although I'm not totally sure of this.

 

This is an extract from their web site dealing with Drum Accessories 

https://www.themarchingbandshop.co.uk/product-category/drums-and-accessories/drum-cases-and-bags/ and, although it doesn't include exactly what you want, they may be able to help you. The person to speak to is Phil Masefield on 07885 813345 (from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday) or via email - phil@themarchingbandshop.co.uk. 

 

Best of luck!
