what do you play snare, tenors, bass, mallets, cymbals?All percussionests are alike yet those who play snare are different from those who play bass or mallets. So whats your personality?
1. The cocky snare drummer
2. The weird bass drummer
3. The laid back yet sneaky tenor
4. the cool, responsible mallet player
5. Thejust want to have fun cymbal player?

(thses are based on my schools drumline, so dont be offended if you want to add to these just add! have fun)

I don`t think ALL snare drummers are `cocky` but (when I play snare) I`ll admit to enjoy the crispness of the tone and how it carries so nicely...(ie - being the centre of attention )
I completely agree with mallet players being the resonsible organised ones though - maybe another word for us is simply `goody-two-shoes` but someone has to keep the other percussionists in line! :P

our snare drummers r cocky except our center snare. the bass drummers arent the weird one's, they r the cool laid back ones n our 1st tenor is cool but the other one is kinda weird. the pit in general is the weird one's

Wow. Your drumline is just like mine. Hm. The only difference is we're all kind of weird. Our snares are a bit cocky and sure of themselves. I play tenor and am a bit layed back. Our cymbals are crazy weirdos that just want to have fun. Our mallet players are responsible and a bit cool. Our bass drums...don't get me started on our bass drums...weird. Yeah I'd say that's about accurate. You hit it right on the nose for my drumline.

I must admit, our line is pretty much the stereo typical drumline you described, but we're all kinda wierd. But with our snare line, they don't know when to shut the hell up.

our drumline has :

1. the the rocker tenor player
2. the gansta snare playa
3. the dedicated, layed back,knows everything but dosent show off(much) snare
4. nervous feshmen bass player
5. down to earth, layed back bass players
6. and the peice of cr*p cymbol payer in the stands

no offence to symbol players,(see my post in :how big is your drumline or pit) we have a small school and the people that wants to play a symbol over a drum are so bad they shouldnt be alowed in band. we have you "medium" players. your either great at every thing you do or you suck. theirs a big gap in between

the symbol payers are so bad they only play in the stands.

there is no way any dirrector that would let them on the field, they cant even mark time to clicks.

so our drumline has no symbols
