Lightweight balanced action kettle drum
Please select instrument options
The Harmonic timpani series from Majestic features reliable and responsive kettle drums designed to provide a high standard of tonal performance while remaining conveniently portable. MTG models are made with deep cambered FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Polyester) shells making them the lightest and cheapest in the range.
This durable bowl sits on a cast aluminium pedestal frame with all the complicated timpani tuning mechanisms hidden away inside. The frame has two sturdy legs on casters and a larger third arm for the tuning pedal, all of which can be folded up in seconds to keep secure and save space when storing or transporting the drums.
To tune the kettle drum, musicians just need to tilt the large smooth action foot pedal forwards or backwards. A clever balanced spring system holds the tension of the drum skin at whichever point the pedal is pushed. By controlling the tension in this way, each drum can span about an octave in total, and their fundamental pitch can be altered manually with the included drum key.
Every timpano is fitted with a high-quality Remo Renaissance head and one of Majestic’s large adjustable tuning gauge. A pair of mallets is included with the largest 32” drum, and a professional stick bag with the 26” model. If more than one drum is ordered at the same time, they can be set up in German (low to high, right to left) or American (left to right) style.
