Mount Kisco’s Drum Corps Owns Record-Setting Drum Set

We bet you didn’t even know about the corps, much less the fact that they own the largest set of drums in the country, which was created by famed drum maker Sanford “Gus” Moeller.

Mount Kisco has its own drum corps—the Mount Kisco Ancients Fife & Drum Corps—which was formed in 1937. They have played around Mount Kisco and the country since then, including an early performance at 1939’s World’s Fair in New York. The corps has the largest set of drums still in existence that were created by famed drum maker Sanford “Gus” Moeller. The drums, which were delivered in the 1950s, are still played today. Today, the corps has more than 40 members and plays at local parades every summer.
