Fife And Drum, With A Modern Twist

Aug 28, 2015

Revolutionary War battles were accompanied by the simple music of wooden fifes and drums. The instruments are less in demand today, except among select audiences like drum corps and war re-enactors.

Lucky for them, Cooperman Company of Saxtons River still produces fifes, drums, tambourines, and other musical instruments. The modern process of making period instruments is a blend of historical technique and modern machinery.
