PCT Dresden Pedal Timpani


PCT Dresden Pedal Timpani offer 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.

Contact us about starting your set today.  After much time, research, and energy, we are excited to bring you a product worthy of any Orchestra Hall in the world.

Unlike most of the mass produced products on the market we can accommodate your specific hopes and dreams.  Using our knowledge and skill from refurbishing what is now hundreds of professional timpani, we can work with you to build the last professional set of drums you will ever need.

Shiny copper and black frames not your style?  We host many bowl patina possibilities paired with almost endless frame color options.
