Also known as the front-ensemble. Usually most talented in band. Brings color and warmth to music in marching band/drum corps. Usually related to drumline. Section that gets most crap for not having to march but yet takes most skill, technique, and practicing.
Dude the pit is rockin' it out there.

The pit has a ridiculous four mallet solo!

Preferably the Front Ensemble. The most abused part of the marching band by hornline members for their lack of marching. And yet also the section that adds great music in, has to push around enormous instruments and often get tendinitis or carpal tunnel from all the practicing. The section that takes the most work, concentration, and definitely puts in the most practice hours. The Front is their own family with the most weird jokes, creepy innuendos and most laughs. Also the section that loves one another and will do most anything for the another section member. The Front is part of the Drumline although it is often excluded from all groups.
"man the Pit has a lot of notes"

Part of the drumline in a marching band.
Not incompetent in comparison to those on the field. People with the hardest music. People putting in more hours than are in a week for rehersal. The only ones with the excuse " i havent GOTTEN the music yet " when asked if its memorized beacuse the drumline instructor is still writing it. Part of the band that could march but would rather play insturments that are too large to lift on there own. Carts are used in getting there equitment on the field. Electronics cart requires cords and 1000 extension cords to be plugged in. The closest people in the band. The family with the most creepy incest akward disfunctial problems. Those that " have a life " beacuse they call drumline there life. A group that gives up all there time but aproxamently 3 or 4 weeks of the year.

The area below the stage where the orchestra sits for a musical. Or, just the another name for the orchestra itself.
Look at the pit for Anythign Goes. They all rock, excpet that red haired fill-in drummer. He cant keep a decent beat. Maybe he should of put in an effort to learn the part.
