What kind of block should I utilize for 1 snare, 1 tenor, and 3 basses? Here are some ideas that I had:


B3 B2
..B1
S .. T



B3 B2
..B1
..T
..S


I really don't know. Neither of those seem right. Any ideas?

I agree with this. I don't think stacking the basses is a great idea.

I've just never had to deal with this type of situation. Usually we have 4/5 basses, 2/3 snares, and 1/2 tenors. Thanks for the help guys. I'll probably go with your suggestion AWA.

Me, too. We never stacked basses until we had five this last year, and we only do that in a block on our own, or when we condense in a parade.
