A stable set of kettledrums with a light, yet reliable footpedal and tons of features.

The Adams Professional Series Generation II Polished Copper Timpani set features four drums ranging from 23 to 32 inches in diameter. This quartet of copper kettledrums provides percussionists and educators with a complete palette of tonal colors to bring vivid musical experiences to life. The Generation II series represents the pinnacle of Adams' timpani engineering, optimized for nuanced tuning, transport, and playability.

Patented Tuning Mechanism Ensures Pitch Perfection

Adams' patented Balanced Action pedal and tension knob facilitate smooth and accurate tuning across the set's full range. The pedal's balanced mechanism prevents the drumhead from slipping out of tune, while the tension knob allows for fine adjustments. These features combine to produce tones that sing with harmonic clarity and resonance.

Copper Shells Resonate with a Warm, Vibrant Voice

Handcrafted copper kettles give the Generation II timpani their characteristic tone, rich in overtones with a warm fundamental pitch. Their copper construction also allows notes to bloom and sustain. The kettles are suspended within a single-flange steel counterhoop for durability and attached to three struts for stability, enabling the timpani to withstand the vigor of orchestral performance.

Transport with Ease on High-Quality Casters

Easy-roll casters, including one player-facing wheel, facilitate transporting the full set between rehearsal spaces and performance venues. The casters' dual-locking mechanism keeps the timpani securely in place once positioned. This mobility, combined with the set's range, makes the Generation II timpani ideal for educators aiming to expose students to the expressive power of these indispensable orchestral drums.

Premium Features Refine the Playing Experience

Rubber mutes attach magnetically for convenient damping between pieces. An Adams logo badge adorns each drum, reflecting the brand's commitment to excellence. With their robust build, rich tone, and innovative features aimed at playability and control, the Generation II timpani set delivers an experience worthy of the professional stage.
