'MSR' is an acronym for March, Strathspey and Reel which are three contrasting Scottish tune types regularly played by pipe bands worldwide. This set of Scottish tunes is considered the golden standard competition format for nearly all pipe bands and soloists of all levels.
IP and Maxwell have taken this traditional set of music and re-imagined it into a set of three contrasting snare drumsticks intended to meet the needs of any Scottish pipe band drummer at any level of play, any age, any performing environment, and any competitive situation.
