Philharmonic Dresden Vintage

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 centuries. These new instruments utilize modern Adams innovations while retaining their unique vintage look and sound. Dresden Vintage Timpani feature a special extra-thin vintage profile with handmade hammered bowls that are finished in a unique etched red-tinted lacquer, creating a striking visual presence within any ensemble. Frame components are lacquered red with hand-detailed gold pin-striping.
