Professional Series Timpani

For more than 35 years Professional Series timpani have set the standard for performance. Exceptional resonance, projection, and tone duration best describe these handcrafted timpani. From leading symphony orchestras to accomplished timpanists, Ludwig's Professional Series timpani have provided players with the kind of performance their reputations rely on. Built on the Ludwig Balanced Action base, Professional Series timpani are available in your choice of hammered copper, polished copper, or fiberglass bowls. These deep parabolic bowls hang freely within an exclusive double-ring suspension system and produce a tuning range up to a major 6th.
