Description
Adams is excited to have Philharmonic Dresden Vintage join the existing line-up of high end Adams timpani available today.
Re-engineered from the ground up, Adams Philharmonic Dresden Vintage timpani were painstakingly designed taking cues from Dresden drums of the 19th and early 20th century. These new instruments utilize modern Adams innovations to optimize the power and complexity of these magnificent instruments, while retaining their unique vintage look and sound.
The special extra thin vintage profile handmade hammered bowls are finished in a unique etched red-tinted lacquer, which will create a striking visual presence within any ensemble. Frame components are lacquered red with hand-detailed gold pin-striping. Available in 20, 23, 26, 29, and 32  sizes in both American and German configuration, these new drums will allow the modern timpanist to get that dark vintage sound.
This Listing is for a set of 23" 26" 29" 32"  Timpani. Buy in a Set and Save. Images are for reference only.

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.
