The Ludwig Professional Series Polished Copper Timpani are the choice of many leading symphonies and universities. These hand-crafted timpani offer exceptional resonance, projection and tone duration at all dynamic levels.
Smooth Copper bowls provide a richer and more vivid tone than fiberglass. There is only a small difference in weight compared to fiberglass, but a much improved projection and sustain.
Double-ring suspension system that isolates the kettle completely from the tuning mechanism and provides great depth of tone
A profile collar that extends the head beyond the kettle edge for greater resonance and pitch definition
A patented Balanced Action pedal that gives fast, accurate, and effortless tuning.
Extra-large parabolic kettles are available in your choice of hammered seamless copper, polished seamless copper or precision molded fiberglass.
The reliable and fully adjustable Professional Series pedal activated tuning gauge
