Tompkins-Trio in a Rudimental Style (3P)-3BD/3SD - Product Information

Trio is written for three snare drums and three bass drums. It was premiered by the New York Philharmonic Percussion section on April 3rd, 2002. It is heavily influenced by funk drum set styles (Steve Gadd in particular) and should be played as such. It is recommended to use 6 ½ inch snare drums with wire snares and trap- set bass drums mounted on their sides (or large floor toms) with some muffling. None of these instruments should sound "classical".

Number of Players: 3
Level of Difficulty: 4+
Instrumentation:
3 snare drums
3 bass drums
