Reading Buccaneers - 2013 DCA Champions

The Reading Buccaneers Drum and Bugle Corps, Reading, PA, have won the 2013 DCA Championships with a score of 98.43!  New to the Pearl/Adams Roster in 2013, the Buccaneers are synonymous with success, and their tradition continued in 2013 with their production of Higher, Faster, Stronger. The 2013 Championship is the Buccaneers’ 12th World Championship victory, and their 8th in the past 9 years.  Drum Corps Associates (DCA) Finals took place in Annapolis, MD, September 1st, at the magnificent Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The Bucs drumline had a very strong finals performance, finishing 2nd overall in percussion, while the corps took 1st place in the Visual, Music, Communication, and General Effect captions.

The Buccaneers battery section utilized the crisp, articulate sonority of Pearl’s Championship CarbonCore marching drums, finished in a beautiful, sparkling  hi-gloss laquer finish #368 Black Silver Burst.  Championship CarbonCore features a 6-ply Maple shell with an inner ply of carbon fiber to increase projection and articulation.
