Dynasty Concert Percussion turned some heads with the showing of our prototype Signature Concert Snare Drum. The concert snare drum features a 10 ply American maple shell in combination with a fully machined throw-off and easy adjustment to get the sound you want from the unique snare system. The Signature snare drum also boasts craftsmanship with our tube lug design casings and beautifully hand stained shell . Dynasty marching percussion has also introduced some brand new finishes for 2011. We have added sparkle fade finishes to our already extensive line of customized options for marching drums. Dynasty has also been noticed at NAMM 2011 for the development of the P10-DOP30 pedal glock. This instrument features a 3.0 octave set of steel bar bells that includes a damper bar to give the player the control they need for any musical situation. The glock can also be ordered on a Dynasty " Grid Iron " field cart. The P10-DOP30 has been heard by ensembles such as Phantom Regiment (the DCI High Percussion award in 2008 and 2010) and the 2008 & 2009 WGI World Champions, RhythmX from Columbus, Ohio.

The Dynasty marching brass was highlighted in the booth with over 45 years of making the most durable instruments combined with the finest quality of sound heard on the field. The Dynasty family of brass features a full compliment of marching brass instruments for Drum Corps and Marching Bands. Available in silver or lacquer , these instruments are a staple in the Dynasty brand of products. Please keep an eye on the Dynasty website and the Dynasty Facebook site for videos and pictures of NAMM 2011. NAMM 2011 was a huge success for Dynasty. We are very excited about 2011 and showed some popular existing products along with some exciting NEW products for 2011. The most talked about product from the show was the NEW Dynasty T-Max SEM mount marching carrier. "We have taken our time in developing this carrier through some of the best marching ensembles in the world " said Dave Clark , Product Manager for Dynasty USA. The NEW carrier features an extremely durable build along with maintaining maximum comfort for the player. The SEM mount alleviates the need for traditional J bars for the marching snare drum and the marching ,multi-tom sets. The NEW carrier features extended comfort foam and the Simple Entry Mount system that enables the player to attach the drum to the carrier much quicker than traditional models.
