    Dynasty USA / Blue Devils
    Dynasty announces the end of an era with the Blue Devils organization. “The Blue Devils have been an amazing partner over the last 10 years. The organizations competition record has set new standards in the drum corps activity and Dynasty was proud to provide the equipment to make them a force over the last decade. The Blue Devils have been a huge part in helping us produce the finest Brass and Percussion instruments on the market. The Blue Devils have pursued many avenues over the last couple of years to create a stronger identity for their organization. The business endeavors of the organization are not in line with maintaining Dynasty’s current market plan. We wish the best for the Blue Devils and look forward to pursuing exciting new avenues for the growth of Dynasty USA." said Mark Schafer President of Dynasty USA.

    Wonder if they are jumping on the Jupiter bandwagon, moving up to Yamaha drums and horns, or what?
    You don't suppose they'd be moving to Pearl drums do you? (Actually heard a rumor they were going wih Pearl and King horns)...

    I knew this was coming. I also heard the rumour about Pearl drums. While Pearl's marching products are great no doubt, I would love to see them back on Yamaha. Considering the custom finish options are endless from Yamaha, I think they could get some fantastic drums. We all know BD sounded brilliant on Yamaha.

          NO WAY!!! Aghhh!!!

          If only they'd go back to Vic Firth or with Innovative! That'd be a match made in heaven. But, no, the must stick with their ProMarks. Bleh.

            This is going to be a fantastic move on the Blue Devils part. Not that I hate Dynasty, I do own one of their drums and I do love it to death, but I think they're going to sound so much better with the Pearl products.

                  Unless they like countertops.

                    Come on, you can't hate the Dynasty now that a certain Mr. Rennick has made them sound so amazing. I used to think they were okay, but after I heard PR's, I realized that BD's suck.

                      Totally, but at least the Pearl's are a step in the right direction. And ProMark must've given BD one hell of a deal, because all of the System Blue crap is exactly what they had with Vic Firth, just with they're own full line of stuff, instead of of it being Scott Johnson's.

                      Personally, I think ProMark sticks don't sound nice nor last. And, their marching stick bags look terrible. I'm running VF right now, but am talking to an IP rep about an endorsement. Love both.

                        Sounds like any typical modern drumline.

                          Which were prototype drums that weren't available to all lines. I have had experience with old Dynasty drums when the only finish you could get was the red/black combination. They were always a tad boxy and dry. The modern drums don't sound much different.

                          I just hope BD takes advantage of that awesome bottom end Pearl bass drums have.

                            If they were prototypes then they were no different than the drums they gave the Blue Devils as well; ChiaPet has one of the 2008 Phantom drums and other than the finish, he couldn't tell any difference between that drum, and say, my drum.

                            I get a good sound out of my drum, but I also know how to tune. Maybe the older drums spoiled your ears and now you never look at them the same, but I like my drum and I like the sound I get from it.

                            I do agree with you on the low end from the basses; Pearls basses make some noise and finally I'll be able to feel those lower drums.

                              I do want to feel them in my b*lls. It would complete BD's powerhouse brass... even though still can't compare with PR's.
