Description

Originally written in 1990 by then SCV marching tenor player Murray Gusseck, Martian Mambo quickly became an in-demand SCV classic at drum corps shows during a time when drumlines didn't really play much outside of their competitive shows and simple rudimental warmups. This piece helped launch Gusseck's drum corps career as a unique voice in the activity and paved the way for a whole new subgenre in the marching world—the lot jams.

It's written in 11/16 time and rhythmically inspired by one of Mitchell Peters' etudes from his popular Advanced Snare Drum Studies. Newly revised for increased playability and less ticks, this rendition is now available as a stand-alone download. An oldie, but a goodie!

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

  • Marching snare drums
  • Marching tenors
  • Marching bass drums (5)
