Rhythm X Winds and Percussion both had a very successful weekend at Mid-South Championships. You can view the Winds prelims and finals scores here, along with the Percussion prelims and finals scores. It was our busiest weekend yet in the X15 Performance Tour with taking our 84 performers, full staff, interns, and volunteers down South to Bowling Green, Kentucky. Rhythm X would like to thank everyone who came out to watch us this weekend and helped with the performance- without you, none of this would be possible!

Today we're excited to finally announce that Rhythm X and ON2 Percussion - the preeminent designer and manufacturer of drum slips - are joining forces. This year the Rhythm X battery will be marching with ON2 drum slips over our Pearl CarbonCore instruments.
This year the overall visual design of our show requires a level of customization on our drums slips that only ON2 can provide. They are the industry leader in customization of drum slips and even accompanying bass drum heads. ON2 and FJM, Inc. have worked closely to ensure that our drum slips, heads, and uniforms are something the activity has never seen before.
Stay tuned, tomorrow we'll release the first images of the X15 uniform and drum slip concepts.
