A best-selling timpani with new advanced features.

The Ludwig Standard Series Fiberglass Timpani is a revolutionary drum providing an unparalleled combination of tone and tuning accuracy. With its patented Balanced Action Pedal, fiberglass bowl construction, and casters for effortless mobility, this timpani delivers a balanced, resonant sound and efficient tuning that's made it the most popular timpani worldwide. Ensemble percussionists will appreciate its durable yet lightweight build and ability to blend seamlessly with any group.

Balanced Action Pedal Enables Precision Tuning
The Ludwig Standard Series Fiberglass Timpani features a patented Balanced Action Pedal that provides precise, efficient tuning for an accurate, consistent pitch. Its innovative mechanism and high-quality materials mean this timpani can be quickly tuned to any note in its range, allowing percussionists to change keys or follow a conductor's tempo with ease during a performance.

Fiberglass Bowl Produces Rich, Resonant Tone
At the heart of this timpani is a fiberglass bowl that generates a vibrant, balanced tone. Fiberglass provides a lighter alternative to copper while still producing a resonant, projecting sound. The bowl's shape enhances sustain and clarity across all pitch ranges. Whether playing rolls, accents or full melodic passages, this timpani's fiberglass bowl helps every note sing.

Casters Provide Effortless Transport
Quick-release casters, including an omni wheel, allow this timpani to glide smoothly across any surface. Percussionists can efficiently transport the drum using its side handles to position it on stage or move it between rehearsal spaces. The casters lock securely in place for stability during playing but disengauge quickly when it's time to pack up. This mobility, combined with the timpani's lightweight fiberglass build, makes transportation and setup a breeze.

Additional Features
This timpani also includes a drum key for convenient tuning and adjustment. For unparalleled tone, precision, and portability, the Ludwig Standard Series Fiberglass Timpani is a must-have for any serious percussionist.
