Box 5s: Top 5 Winter Percussion Finds!

The winter percussion season is quickly headed towards its end, but there is still time to rock some great new designs. Here are our Box 5 finds from our 2021 Winter Percussion collection! Pick them out now before they disappear. Click here to view the entire collection yourself and see what other great designs we have waiting for you. We are so proud of the incredible work of the designers who created some truly one-of-a-kind designs that you won't find anywhere else.

#5: Teddy Bass Unisex Sweatshirt - $35

This first one is a serious contender for the crown. It's cute, it's a little creepy, it is impossibly comfortable. As I'm writing this, I am literally wearing one of our sweaters and I can't possibly enjoy it more. Even more than that, like all of our designs, each purchase supports our ability to hire independent designers and give them a platform to show the world what they can do.


#4: Teddy Tenor Percussion Unisex Tank Top - $25

Speaking of something new and different, please welcome to the floor the Teddy Tenor. With the popularity of the Teddy Bass design, I couldn't help but ask for the aesthetic to be built out for even more instruments. I know the Teddy Bass is pretty universal for percussion, but you have to admit there is something so cool and refreshing here. Easily not like anything you'd see at a show being sold. And, like so many other great designs, it comes available on a whole slew of different color options to fit any style. Since we are all going to need tank tops heading into summer anyways (and only $25), why not go for it and try it out? You can even add another something else and if your order is over $50, use code: FREESHIPPING at checkout for free shipping on your entire order.


#3: Para Cruz Unisex Hoodie - $35

I know what you're thinking, "But wait Shawn isn't this an obvious reference to the iconic Santa Cruz design?" and yes, yes it is. But that doesn't make it any less fun or interesting. This hoodie will absolutely draw people's eyes and make you stand out. And isn't that the whole point of graphic merch anyways? To represent who you are through your clothing? The "Para Cruz" design is also available across so many different great products! Just use the search bar at the top of the page, type in "Para Cruz" and see all the options pop up before you. The entire site is fully searchable by design name so if you see something you like and want to see if it's available on a phone case or a pillow, just search it!


#2: Skeleton Cymbal Percussion Men’s Long Sleeve Shirt - $25

I already told you we go for different and interesting here so why would even be surprised when you see a skeleton hand balancing a cymbal on the end of a drum stick in a bouquet of flowers? I'd be more surprised if we didn't have something like this in our catalogue to choose from. These 100% cotton, pre-shrunk long sleeves are sure to fit. And if you aren't sure, we have sizing guides available for every single item. Take a minute to take some measurements and order with confidence that every item of clothing will fit every single time. Ain't no shame in doing what you need to do to know you're right.


#1: Make Beats Not War Percussion Short-Sleeve Unisex T-Shirt - $20

And last, but certainly no where near least, is our "Make Beats Not War". Inspired by the old music posters of the 60s and 70s, I wanted the designer to craft something that is timeless. Something both fresh and retro. And I really think we nailed it on the head with this one. The best part? The design prints seamlessly onto our, again, 100% cotton and pre-shrunk shirts to make sure you get the best quality product we can give you. We spend a lot of time on design, yes. But it's important that the shirt also fits and is comfortable. Use our sizing guides to make sure the shirt you get is the size you want! And at only $20, what is there to lose?



We thrive every day to build this brand into something more than someone at a computer trying to hawk some wears and make a few extra coins. We want this to be a community. A place where we can go to celebrate everything that makes us, as performers, special. And I know that sounds cheesy but as I reach the end of this seemingly sales-pitchy post (because let's be honest with ourselves we all know that's what this is) I am reminded why I started this in the first place. Why I wanted to make something new. Quality, Consistency, Creativity. I wanted to make something that I knew the second you saw that box arrive with the Marching Arts Merchandise logo on it, you would be excited to rip into it and start wearing whatever it is you bought. So let us know in the comments below, what item are you most excited to get?
