The Majestic Smooth Copper Symphonic Grand Timpani were designed to include professional features and tone while incorporating a less complex block style pedal system with both hand and foot fine tuners for easy and precise tuning. Cambered copper kettles are standard equipment and are available with precision hammered bowls or polished finish bowls.
Smooth Copper bowls provide a richer, vivid tone. Smooth Copper is going to be a brighter, open sound, versus the hammered copper.
The cast frame features two main wheels and a double caster under the pedal arm, making it easy to move. Double locking wheels keep the drums securely in place by controlling both roll and swivel motions. Combining high performance features with state-of-the-art manufacturing, Majestic’s Symphonic Grand series offers professional level timpani to a wider range of players.
