Timpani Ludwig 29˝ Grand Symphonic Hammered Copper LTG729KG
Hammered Copper Bowl with Pro Tuning Gauge (Suspended One-Piece Bowl Construction)
Ludwig Grand Symphonic Series Timpani are designed from the ground up to deliver a high-end, pure tone in a highly functional, balanced shell (no pun intended). The Grand Symphonic Series is Ludwig's best-of-the-best. They're designed to be the industry standard in terms of tone quality, control, and resonance.
These drums are the standard of what a modern timpani design should be - 3-wheeled and portable, with a durable gauge design, and a seamlessly smooth pedal that is exact with every adjustment.
Grand Symphonic series drums come with side-mounted, adjustable, pedal-activated tuning gauges that make quick tuning a breeze as long as the heads are tuned and the gauges are set. The balanced-action pedal is instant to adjust, and is extremely smooth and balanced as the name suggests.
The hammered copper bowl is extremely resonant, able to fill a concert hall with loud, booming rolls and quiet low-end support alike. Thanks to the extra hammering, the low-end, warm fundamental tone is amplified over a non-hammered bowl.
The rolled-lip design of the bowl helps the head resonate with some of the most pure, overtone-free sounds that have ever been produced by timpani, while also extending the range of each drum to a full 7th.
A permanent third Omni wheel is also included under the pedal, with 360-degree movement, making it easy to find exact placement for your drum. The rear casters are large, smooth, and detachable to help fit through tight spaces, and have highly effective brakes to help make sure the drums don't move when tuning.
Each drum comes included with a fiber head protector, to help your drums stay in-tune when they're not in use, as well as a shallow drop cover, and a tuning key. These drums also come standard with Ludwig Ensemble Smooth White Timpani Heads.
