CU Tiger Band Drumline

CUD is the premier marching percussion ensemble at Clemson University and is a section of the Clemson University Tiger Band - The Band That Shakes The Southland. Being part of the drumline at Clemson not only teaches students how to have confidence and perform to an audience, it also teaches students the value of teamwork, provides character development, and builds leadership skills. Rich tradition, high standards, and performance excellence are trademarks of both the Clemson University Drumline and Tiger Band.

The mission of the Clemson Drumline is to exhibit the core values that define CUD, to demonstrate excellence in everything we do, and to improve from rehearsal to rehearsal, game to game, year to year.

The Clemson Drumline is sponsored by Yamaha Marching Percussion, Sabian Cymbals, Remo Drumheads, and Vic Firth Drumsticks. We greatly value the relationships we have with all of our sponsors.
