We are proud to announce that the Blue Devils will perform on System Blue Natal Professional Battery Percussion this 2016 season. The 17-time Drum Corps International world champions and 15-time percussion champions will march System Blue Snares, Tenors, and Basses.
"We are beyond excited about this," remarks Scott Johnson, long-time percussion caption head of the Blue Devils, Natal and System Blue designer. "We have been working on these drum designs for almost ten years, but I have been envisioning drums like these since I was four years old. It really is a dream come true for all of us."
When experiencing the System Blue Natal drums for the first time, the drum line immediately fell in love with the new warm articulate sound, the sleek design, and the lightweight of the drums. The snare line has noticed that much stress and fatigue has been removed from their hands.
"We designed these drums for everyone”, says Al Murray, head of product design for System Blue Natal. “These are musical athletes who perform and execute demanding musical and physical passages. We wanted to create marching drums that would allow everyone the opportunity to achieve excellence. The featherweight drums allow anyone from child to adult, male or female the chance to reach their greatest potential."
