After last year’s Continental Contest some of our prizes needed replacement. Because of this we had a change in our Best Bass prizes.
The TD-Civiel trophy that was given to the Best Bass Overall will now be given to the band who has the best bass section in Grade 4 overall. This means the combined grades of the Grade 4, Grade 4 MAP and Grade 4 MSR contest. Because of this the PipeBand.nl trophy unfortunately has been discontinued.
The Best Bass Overall prize will be awarded to the band with the best bass section on the day, spreading all grades. We are proud to announce this prize is being sponsored by Proline Sticks. These are designed by Stevie McQuillan from Boghall & Bathgate, and are played by bands all over the world.
