The North West Section has now been mothballed due to lack of support from member bands. (See below the minutes of our final AGM held on 4th December 2022).

All bands in this section are now part of the North England branch and should refer any further correspondence to the Officers and committee members in the North East section shown here.

Since April 2020 Ian Kirkland has been developing a very valuable teaching resource for pipe band snare drummers, ie. detailed breakdowns of:

- Essential Rudiments
- RSPBA Prescribed Tunes
- Alex Duthart Fanfares (1957, 1966, 1972)
- Alex Duthart Book 1 Rudiments
- Alex Duthart Book 1 Scores
- Alex Duthart Book 2 Scores

They are available on his YouTube channel at this address:

The 'Compact' Super XTS pipe band snare drum

Having developed the Super XTS pipe band snare drum,
our designers at Flint Percussion decided to produce a 7" deep version.
We were a little surprised at just how bright this drum was and decided to give it a road test.
In this short video, John Beverland demonstrates how this drum can sound.
Even though this is the shorter version, John has expressed his wish to play this drum in solo competition.
This drum is also incredibly lightweight at just 3.5kg.
