The Perfectionists, The History of Rudimental Snare Drumming from Military Code to Field Competition
Ken Mazur's terrific article titled "The Perfectionists, The History of Rudimental Snare Drumming from Military Code to Field Competition", from the April, 2005 edition of Percussive Notes, p. 10, et seq., published by the Persussive Arts Society, is available at CADRE's (Canadian Associates Drumming Rudimental Excellence) on-line library. CADRE's website is an excellent source of authoritative information on rudimental drumming.
[Note: My father, Joe Mirsky (now age 86 and pictured below in a recent jam session playing a 1986 Cooperman Fife & Drum Co. 6-ply rosewood 18"x18" snare drum), 1939 NYS VFW Junior Snare Drum Champion, is quoted in the Mazur article.]
