Top Ten Best Marching Band Instruments

The Top Ten Best Marching Band Instruments

1 Trumpets A trumpet is a blown musical instrument commonly used in classical and jazz ensembles. The trumpet group contains the instruments with the highest register in the brass family.

Well, obviously they are a top pick for marching instruments, but they are not first for ordinary instruments. To loud and obnoxious. - Idkcats

WHEN I WAS, A YOUNG BOY, MY FATHER,
TOOK ME INTO THE CITY
TO SEE A MARCHING BAND
HE SAID SON WHEN, YOU GROW UP, WOULD YOU BE,
THE SAVIOR OF THE BROKEN
THE BEATEN AND THE DAMNED

The only thing you can actually hear in a band. - Gods-Judgement

2 Mellophone

Mellophones are legit the best instrument and you can change my mind. The rips, runs, sustains, counter melodies. Perfection. I personally believe they should be first on the list but as a mello, I will respect other's opinions.

It's in the name, we're like the trumpets but more mellow. Less shrill and pitchy, and wayyy less cocky/arrogant.

It's all about the Mello runs baby!

3 Pit Percussion
4 Bass Drum
5 Flutes

One of the best instruments that sadly is never heard. Flutes get so much hate they don't deserve.

Lowkey nicest sound I've herd in my life and I don't care if you can't hear them because nevrer the less they are beatiful

6 Clarinets
7 Alto Saxophone
8 Bass Clarinet
9 Bari Sax
10 Tuba

The Contenders

11 Marching Snare

Of course trumpet is 1st

12 Trombone

Should be higher, just like my chair

Gets cool bass lines and melody sometimes and sounds really good when you can hear the entire section

13 Picklo
14 Cymbals
15 Euphonium
16 Marching Quints
17 Oboe Oboes belong to the classification of double reed woodwind instruments. Oboes are usually made of wood, but there are also oboes made of synthetic materials.

The very very best, it be better than the rest

18 Piccolo Tuba
19 Marching French Horns

Kinda like mellos but not really.

20 Tenor Saxophone The tenor saxophone is a medium-sized member of the saxophone family, a group of instruments invented by Adolphe Sax in the 1840s.
21 Baritone
