The 23" Adams Professional Generation II Hammered Cambered Copper Timpani brings a professional-level sound to school music programs and budget-minded timpanists. Made of resonant, dark copper, the cambered bowl has a hyperbolic shape that creates a darker tone than a parabolic bowl, with a more focused fundamental tone.

When you hit the drum, the hammered bowl causes the interior sound waves to bounce around inside much more actively than a smooth bowl, further enhancing the richness and depth of each note.

This drum uses a balanced action pedal with an adjustable spring tension, giving you a smooth pedal feel and a tuning range beyond normal parameters. Tuning gauges make it far easier to tell what note will sound when you hit the drum - as long as you set them correctly before you play!

The bowl itself is suspended from a single-flanged chrome-plated steel ring that is supported by the thick struts. This particular design provides you with a huge amount of power and a very long amount of sustain.

Large commercial-grade swivel casters and wide base legs make it incredibly easy and safe to move these drums. The third set of casters under the pedal makes transportation a simple process that doesn't involve bending over, and firmly lock into place when it's time to play.

The balanced action mechanism on this drum is strong enough to handle a real calf head, for timpanists who crave the richness and focus that synthetic heads have a tough time reproducing.
