Royal Marines Attempt World's Longest Drum Roll
4 March 2014
This May Bank Holiday, over 50
members of the Royal Marines Corps of Drums (COD) will attempt to break the
world record for the longest continuous drum roll. Currently set at 28 hours,
19 minutes and 3 seconds, the COD will be attempting to smash the record by
aiming for 64 hours.
The World Record Attempt will be
used to support the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, as part of the Royal
Marines 350th anniversary.
Problems that could scupper the
World Record Attempt are many – as well as fatigue and problems related to
technique, broken sticks and skins are also a real worry. To this end, Premier
Percussion has donated a specially-designed single-snare drum for the event.
This precision-made instrument has been developed with durability and
robustness the most important consideration. Premier has also supplied the COD
with suitable sticks.
A representative from Guinness
World Records Ltd will be in attendance during the final stages of the WRA as
part of the validation process. Expert invigilators from the drumming community
will also be present throughout the event, including Bob Armstrong, Craig Blundell,
James Hester, Matt King and Sven Parris.
