Professional Generation II
Professional Generation II Timpani are the latest innovation from the world’s leading timpani manufacturer. At the heart of the GEN II is a patented, balanced action pedal mechanism with adjustable spring tension. Each drum’s pedal action is adjustable via a tension knob on the base, allowing it to be smooth over an extended tuning range.
The Professional GEN II bowl is suspended from a chrome-plated steel ring, and is supported by extra strong struts. New double-wheel locking casters, wider stance base legs, and integrated third wheel provide more stability and maneuverability than previously available

P2DH Hammered Cambered Copper
The Cambered, or flat bottomed shape of the P2DH models is based on
the bowl shape used in Adams Philharmonic Light and Dresden Classic
Timpani. The quality of the tone is darker than other GEN II models, and
more focused with a prominent fundamental.
P2KH Hammered Copper
GEN II Hammered Copper bowls are press formed from a single sheet of supreme quality copper. The Adams deep-drawn method of production is far superior in tone and consistency to other common molding methods. Seamless and free of any welds or soldering, the bowl is allowed to resonant freely and evenly. This forming method also ensures an even thickness throughout the entire kettle, resulting in the ultimate in both tonal quality and projection.
P2KG Polished Copper
Polished Copper timpani are the benchmark in sound and performance, due to their ability to be used in nearly any setting by amateurs and professionals alike.
Fiberglass timpani bowls are lower weight and more cost-effective than copper. While the range of the drums is the same as the copper bowl models, fiberglass shells have a slightly shorter sustain that makes them ideal for smaller ensembles and venues. The Fiberglass Professional Series drums offer great value and fantastic performance quality.
