very nice picture patrick....
I like the big drums they used.
They are not easy to use, because of the special construction (Distance between the top-edge of the drum and teh drum-skin). You have to hold your arms in a special position, different from small and modern drums.
Earlier the danish army military bands used the same type of drums. One of the danish military bands donated their instruments to a band of children and teenagers, and only the oldest and most experienced of them can use the drums. They are not often used.
At a yearly military parade to celebrate an old Danish military victory, I have seen two of the teenagers are marching in front of the parade in oldstyle uniforms.
I have two of these larger drums.
I will post pictures soon.
