Chain Timpani

Sound Production

The Chain Timpani that we produce offers the customer a sound that is warm but with definition.  Many timpani on the market today offer a warm resonant sound or a dry penetrating sound without the warmth.  This is the difference between our timpani and any other.   Our timpani provide the timpanist the opportunity to tailor his or her sound to their venue.  These drums accommodate many varieties of sticks which facilitate color change.
