Well, of course this has all caused a buzz about the drum corps interest websites, but I have a question concerning the idea of tendonitis in pit players(particularly the mallet type). Is it true that there is a high rate of tendonitis in those individuals because they have to "bang so loudly" to be heard? I had no problem hearing any of the pits live or taped this last year.
I am trying to keep an open mind about amps, even though my inner voice really tells me that it is an extra expense and redundant(okay so I am conflicting myself here). I guess if having to bang so loudly is giving everyone "mallet wrist", I could understand it from a point of view that there is benefit to it. I think I thought amplification would never pass and certainly not saxophones. I can only think that probably saxophones are next as certain individuals are persistent with their ideas.
