Which line do you like the most from 2003? GIve some reasons why.

I liked BD's quadline and their bassline, but the snares were really dirty. The Cadets were cleaner and all, but there are only so many reefed paradiddlediddles that I can listen to before I get bored. Vanguard's line had some tasty stuff, but I don't know, there just was something I didn't like listening to them. Cavies had some kewl stuff as well, but they were pretty dirty. I guess my vote will have to go to BD.

The question is not who was the best, but who you liked the most.

My line of choice was Phantom, no doubt about it...Everything was pretty damn clean.

BD was actually pretty dirty this year. That snare solo at the beginning...clean at first...but then it just dirted out like crazy...

i like so many things about all the lines, but i have to say the Cavaliers is one of my most favorite. Just something about watching them is amazing. I have yet to see them live though, hopefully at the Tour of Champions.

I love the cavaliers Drumline, just everything they play is so clean and precise. They are always on time and never mess up, well if they do then it doesnt show. Besides they even look badass with their uniforms lol :D

My vote went to Cadets. Although my favorite is definitely a tie between Vanguard and Cadets, cadets didnt have as many supporters, so I voted for them. Cadets are soopa clean and good and play some shweet licks, but Vanguard have some shweet beats in their cadences and warmups, not in their book all the time, but they play their book pretty clean. (you cant make every song groove :roll:)

You obviously have not heard the drum judge tape on the 2003 dvd's.

What are you talking about? SCV's show doesn't groove? Have you heard their 2003 show? About 9 minutes into the show? Any of this ringing a bell? That part was like one of their cadences....it's a long 30 second percussion break with a little brass thrown in at the end...remeber?
