Adams Philharmonic Dresden Classic Timpani
Philharmonic Dresden Classic drums are the latest addition to Adams's world-famous timpani line. Combining the timeless tone of Dresden-style drums with modern quality, these drums give you the response and projection you've been looking for. A traditional ratchet pedal mechanism without spring assist gives those players used to older Dresden-style drums a familiar feel when tuning (contrast with the Philharmonic Light Duff Model that uses spring assist). The traditional "stripped-down" frame is light and strong, and reduces the strain of moving without sacrificing tone or stability.   

Features include:
*Dresden-Style Pedal Mechanism ( foot-operated ratchet design)
*Copper Hammered and Cambered Bowls
*Patent Pending Specially Designed Split Rocker Arm for Super-Smooth Silent Pedal Action
*Specially Designed "Strong & Light" Struts
*T-handle Fine Tuner on player side
*Extremely Accurate Tuning Gauges
*Chrome Plated Counter Hoops, Tension Rods & Centering Devices
*Renaissance Timpani Heads with Insert Rings
*Wooden Head Covers Included  

 

Definitions:

 

American :  Arranging the drums in the typical "American " style of high drum on the right, and low drum on the left (also sometimes referred to as "keyboard" or "piano" style for the same "low-on-the-left" reasons).  This is important when ordering Dresden style drums as the tuning pedal and gauges are placed not in the front center position -but to the right or left of the bowl.  For instance: a 20" Amercian Dresden timpano will have the pedal and gauge on the left of the bowl, nearest the center of the set-up when placed on the farthest right-hand position. 

 

German:  Arranging the drums in the typical "German" style of high drum on the left, and low drum on the right. This is the traditional set-up configuration of European or "Germanic" orchestral timpani playing heritage. The advantages with the German configuration is that it places the typical dominant (or "5th" in harmonic structure) on a right-handed players stronger side,  naturally enhancing the musical character of the classic "five -one" chord resolution.   As with the American configuartion, it is important to note a players preference for "german" configuration when ordering Dresden style drums as the tuning pedal and gauges are placed not in the front center position -but to the right or left of the bowl.  For instance: a 20" German Dresden timpano will have the pedal and gauge on the right of the bowl, nearest the center of the set-up when placed on the farthest left-hand position.
