A drumline or drum line is a section of percussion instruments usually played as part of a musical marching ensemble. Drumlines are usually incorporated into high school or college marching bands, drum and bugle corps, drum and lyre corps, indoor percussion ensembles, or pipe bands, but also can exist independent of these ensembles. "Battery" is the drum section that marches on the field as a group, usually consisting of snare drums, bass drums, tenor drums, and cymbals. Stationary percussion within a marching ensemble is called the "front ensemble" or pit, which also describes the area where those percussion instruments are set on the field. A large drumline ensemble might include multiple snares, bass drums, quads, tenors, cymbals, mallet instruments such as marimbas and glockenspiels, and a super-bass 60 inches in diameter.
