Adams Universal Timpani

Adams Universal Series Timpani were designed to meet the demand for an extremely high quality, yet highly portable instrument, priced well within reach of today's performing professionals. Their parabolic shaped bowl, available in either copper or fiberglass, rests inside an aluminum shelf, greatly contributing to the instrument's stability, outstanding tonal quality and excellent resonance.

Features Universal timpani

European Style block pedal system
European Style block pedal system, also known as clutch and post, allows for smooth, precise pedal action regardless of head tension. The locking pedal action secures each pitch in place.

Adjustable & Retractable Supporting Legs
For maximum portability, our Universal Timpani feature multi-adjustable supporting legs that retract completely into the bowl, allowing a set of Timpani to comfortably fit in an average car for transport. The rear leg of the tripod features a locking wheel for easy stage positioning.

Optional finetuner
Optional player’s side fine tuner is available for the most precise pitch adjustment. Note: The Universal Professional fine tuner must be installed at the time of manufacture and is not available as an add-on accessory.
