All Adams Universal Hammered Copper Timpani

Adams universal hammered copper timpani’s have the best price to quality ratio and are the darkest, most direct and focused tone of the Adams universal series. Their parabolic bowls have been made on Adams’ in-house designed hammering and polishing machine which eliminates the inconsistencies of handwork and perfectly recreates the technique of experienced craftsmen in both, the hand-hammering and the hand-polishing process. These timps are a great choice for bands, small orchestras, education users, and travelling percussionists as they’re nice and easy to operate and the pedal mechanism can be silently locked into place to pinpoint any note [and there’s an option to buy it with a finetuner so further fine-tuning adjustments can be made]. These universal timps feature legs that are adjustable to the player’s height while seated, and easily retract into the kettle for transport. They’re designed to meet the demand for an extremely high quality, yet highly portable instrument, priced well within reach of today’s performing professionals.

The features on the universal timpani range include: ‘A Clutch Locking Mechanism’… that is a toe-release-pedal-system [also known as European style block pedal system] the position of the pedal is mechanically locked on the position you want. The design of the clutch mechanism makes pedal action extremely smooth and stable. Unlike the Professional GEN II series ‘Balanced Action Spring Mechanism’, this type of block pedal system allows the fundamental pitch of the timpani head to be easily altered without effecting pedal performance. The design of the clutch mechanism makes pedal action extremely smooth and stable. The timp has Adjustable & Retractable Supporting Legs which give maximum portability and the multi-adjustable supporting legs retract completely into the bowl, allowing a set of timps to fit in an average car for transport. The rear leg of the tripod features a locking wheel for easy stage positioning. The universal series come pre-loaded with Adams Remo Renaissance hazy heads and the aluminum insert ring boast a warm, dark, focused sound with full-range projection and stable pitch.
