Inspired by Hans Schnellars original salon timpani, owned by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, we re-designed the base of the instrument and the crank-operation.
The handmade bowls have a diameter of 600 and 630 mm, but can be made different sizes too. The instruments come with Sonnberg goat skins. These goat parchments are made from rawhide and thus provide a richer variety of overtones. In addition, they have a very pronounced fundamental note, which gives the perfect bass foundation, especially for larger drums.
The timpani perfectly suit the Baroque, Classical, and early Romantic repertoire, and are available with a lacquered or nickel plated base.
