We chose Premier drums for their consistent, full-bodied and powerful sound and we are delighted with the projection, clarity and snare response we get from these drums.

Information

The band, who have been sponsored by Scottish Power since 1989, are one of the world's leading grade 1 pipe bands having featured as a regular prizewinner in all major competitions over several decades. Twice Cowal Champions, Scottish Champions, All-Ireland Champions and runners-up in the World Championships are just some of their awards.

Great ambassadors for the company, they are in demand throughout the world, having performed in the US, Canada, Japan and China. The band have appeared before The Queen at Braemar, for the Pope at St Peter's in Rome, with Sir Paul McCartney at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, at the Lord Mayor's Show in London, at the Official Opening of the Scottish Parliament and at the 75th Royal Variety Performance. The band have appeared on TV networks throughout the world promoting their sponsorship with the company whilst dressed in the Scottish Power tartan which was commissioned especially for them.

The Scottish Power drum Corps is led by second-year leading drummer Jake Jørgensen.In his first season, Jake led the drum corps to a second place in drumming at the Scottish Championships and an overall 4th in drumming at the World Pipe Band Championships. The corps features regularly in the top 6 at Major Championships and is pushing hard to get to that top spot.
