FEATURES

Silent Pedal System

The pedal system featured on the Adams Universal Timpani is both silent and easy to operate, and very similar to the toe-block system used on Symphonic Series timpani. The pedal is engaged and released by pivoting the footplate forward, and it utilizes the same infinitely adjustable positive locking mechanism as featured on high-end Philharmonic models.

Optional Fine Tuner

A hand knob fine tuner can be added by special order to either bowl type. The fine tuner gives you the peace of mind that you’ll be able to play in tune, without having to get exactly the right note with the full leg motion pedal action.

Adjustable & Retractable Supporting Legs

For maximum portability, our Universal Timpani feature multi-adjustable supporting legs that retract completely into the bowl, allowing a set of Timpani to comfortably fit in an average car for transport. The rear leg of the tripod features a locking wheel for easy stage positioning.

Cases Available

Universal Timpani were designed for ultimate portability featuring multi-adjustable supporting legs that retract completely into the bowl. Flight cases are available to meet the needs of the traveling percussionist.
