Adams Philharmonic Light Timpani
The Philharmonic Light’s Ratchet-Free Pedal System has no intermeshing teeth, allowing the player to pinpoint any pitch without restriction. It makes the timpani accessible to a wide range of timpani players, extremely suitable for conservatories or for music in which a lot of (quick) tuning is required.
Numerous advancements established the Philharmonic Light as the benchmark for innovation in timpani manufacture—the original, adjustable split rocker arm, the adjustable length transfer bar, foot and tilting stabilizers, adjustable foot pedal resistance, and a tuning gauge positionable to the player’s exact viewing angle.
The combination of an aluminum base, with extra long bronze strits and a steel suspension ring, provide the typical wide, open sound of the Philharmonic Light.
