Adams Philharmonic Classic Timpani
The Philharmonic Classic timpani are made with the mid twentieth century sound in mind, and equipped with a ratchet style pedal, shorter steel struts and upgraded with a folded split rocker arm. The wine red finish of the bottom and struts, in combination with some nickel plated parts, give the instrument a vintage look.
The cast steel struts of the Philharmonic Classic decrease the pressure on the frame and help prevent any flex or changes in the shape of the frame or bowl. This results in a quick response and tone projection along with a fundamental presence and fullness. The hammered copper bowls are supported by a specially designed high strength suspension ring.
