  • Item Details

    Yamaha 8300 Professional Timpani feature copper bowls that are hammered to harden the metal and give it a consistent thickness across the entire surface area. Combined with their German-inspired hyperbolic cambered shape, this results in a distinctively dark, "European" sound.

    If you took the heads and the counterhoops off, you could lift the bowls straight out of the frames without doing anything else. This free-floating design greatly enhances the vibration capability of the bowls when you strike the heads - and that means longer sustain.

    The Balanced Action Pedal System lets the player move the pedals without needing to activate a clutch, making pitch changes far easier than on a Dresden-style system. Cable-linked tuning gauges let you know what pitch you're on at a glance (as long as you've set them right beforehand).

    Large casters make the drums easy to move, especially with the small recessed caster under the pedals. The casters lock and unlock easily, able to adjust in height to get the perfect angle whether you're sitting or standing.

    The tuning rods and spider mechanisms are all protected from bumps and dings while moving or carrying the drum around. A timpani key and allen key are included to make any necessary adjustments, as well as fiber head covers, padded long covers, and Remo Renaissance heads with aluminum insert rings.

    The 26" and 29" set has a combined range of F2 - F3, with the possibility of extending beyond this range under the right conditions and with the right tuning. These two sizes are the absolute essentials for any individual or program.
