World Rankings — November Update

Cory hit record rankings total following their recent Albert Hall triumph in London.

Cory Band
  Cory's recent success in London helps secure record rankings total.

The November update of the Band Supplies — 4barsrest.com World Rankings sees Cory band posting the highest total since the rankings began in 2001, following yet another outstanding success at the Royal Albert Hall.

Cory is already certain to finish top of the rankings at the end of 2016, a remarkable ten years on top of the world. Its current lead also means that it is fairly likely that it will remain in the same position 12 months later!
