The Adams Dresden Vintage Timpani is a high-end line of timpani inspired by centuries of timpani innovations. This set of four drums is designed based off of the Dresden style drums of the 19th and early 20th centuries but with new Adams innovations that give them a level of power and precision not seen in the past. These innovations include the square counterhoop for tuning consistency and pistol-style fine tuner that lets you settle into the absolutely perfect pitch.
The bowls of the drums have and extra thin profile that is hand-hammered and finished in a unique etched red-tinted lacquer. The frames components are also red tinted with gold pin-striping. This construction and finish assists in creating the dark, vintage sound that sounds incredible in large performance halls.
Wooden padded head covers and felt mutes are included and fit each of the 23"-26"-29"-32" drums.
