Grand Symphonic Timpani

Ludwig's Grand Symphonic timpani series reflects the evolution of design.

To this day, Ludwig's patented Balanced Action™ tuning pedal is widely imitated, yet never matched. The new rolled-lip copper kettle is specially designed to hang within the suspension ring like a bell, extending the range to a 7th of the most overtone-free pitches ever to sound from a timpani. These one-piece bowls are hammered one at a time. Sturdy pull rodes are built within the struts for safety and a clean appearance, while friction blocks sit astride the main horizontal pull rod, supporting the balanced action on both ends of the range. The reliable and fully adjustable pedal activated tuning gauge comes standard with all Ludwig timpani.

  • Ludwig Ensemble Smooth White Timpani Heads
  • One pair of mallets is standard each
  • 26" Timpani or set of 2, 4, or 5
  • Fiber head protectors
  • Shallow drop covers
  • A key is included with each drum

Key Improvements

The Grand Symphonic Series Timpani has been updated with incredible new functionality.

New tuning gauge placement will allow these drums to be configured with American or German set-up.  All tuning gauge linkage has been removed from the pedal and seamlessly transfered under the base.

A permanent third omni wheel has been added under the pedal. This wheel allows 360° fluid movement, allowing the player to have total control of drum placement.

Improvements have been made to the rear casters including upgraded braking, larger size wheels with a quick-release function. This allows smooth movement and the ability to quickly remove rear casters with ease.
