Description

Double Flag is a flagship snare drum solo by Jeff Queen. In true Queen fashion, the piece calls for two snare drums—one with a Kevlar head and one with a Mylar head. Add to that recipe six thimbles for finger playing, an Evans X-treme Patch™ (recommended, but not required) for effects, and a healthy infusion of chops; the result is 3 minutes of straight-up Queen-tastic craziness!

Dedicated to fellow Tapspace artist Chip Webster, Queen explains how it was inspired by Webster’s keen ability to produce clean-sounding rhythmic articulations with just the fingers…hence the thimble section at the beginning.

This is a very advanced solo for the player with high ambitions. Break yourself off a piece!

Instrumentation

  • Marching snare drum (with kevlar head)
  • Marching snare drum (with mylar head)
  • Six thimbles (for finger playing)
  • Evans X-treme Patch™ (recommended for effects but not required)
