Hello everybody. I'll skip the androgynous intro and just say, I've played virtually every part imaginable in the percussion section in my hometowns local symphonic band. I was wondering if anybody here has insight on the obvious (or not-so-obvious) advantages (or disadvantages) between the two styles. Through drastically different I feel if left to an open discussion, the two may have some common ground. Better yet, both sides could learn and benefit from each other. What do you think?
