Symphonic Series Timpani
A timpani with extraordinary acoustic properties…
Over 85 years of experience and expert advice from many top timpanists have gone into the making of the Majestic Symphonic timpani. The Majestic Symphonic is manufactured with state-of-the-art technology in an endeavor to achieve the ultimate in perfection. The result is a timpani with extraordinary acoustic properties, whether played fortissimo or pianissimo. Its warm, full-bodied timbre has tremendous carrying power while its pitch remains perfectly definable over the full range.
The parabolic kettle is manufactured from seamless copper. Form and depth are carefully calculated and construction is carried out with the utmost precision. Because the rim on which the head rests forms part of the kettle, there is no resonance-distortion from any steel carrying rim on this instrument. The kettle’s suspension in its frame guarantees total purity of sound. At an extra charge, the kettle is also available in a hammered copper version. In addition to the parabolic version, a deep cambered shape is also available.
All Majestic timpani are fitted with an extremely accurate, easily adjustable and eye-pleasing tuning gauge.
A unique balance spring renders the pedal action pleasantly light, thanks in part to the special coating on the kettle rim. If required, the balance spring can be easily adjusted with an adjusting key on the bottom plate.
Majestic Symphonic timpani feature two swiveling castors with brakes and two fixed wheels beneath the pedal. This allows the timpani to be moved easily without having to be partially lifted.
