Belted timpani

Seven at a stroke!

Belted timpani

Seven at a stroke!

At the beginning of the 3rd Millennium, it was time to develop a timpani with that more than contemporary music of the 18th and 19 Century can played. The belted timpani combines seven benefits in one instrument: a central tuning mechanism, fast pitch change, maintenance-free mechanism, tuning gauge, good portability, light-weight at an affordable price.

The belt mechanism (Pat.) which is also in the high octave range very easy to handle, allows the timpani to be used for Bach over Mozart till Beethoven far beyond baroque music.  The turning of all tuning screws at the same time with only one crank allows a central fine tuning even when using calf heads and a retuning of a tone range of one octave with only a flick of your hand. For the tuning crank you have two possibilities to insert on each timpani, fully complying with your requests. This enables a further use of an already one-sided played head without any effort only by turning the whole instrument. With the tuning key that is integrated to the crank, the head can be easily tuned from above.

The maintenance-free and absolutely quiet working belt mechanism is located completely under the counterhoop. No across going wires, no tension screws that project beyond the bowl edge, no sound blocking mechanism inside the bowl. A changing of the head can be done as usual, as the complete mechanism is attached to the counter hoop.

The tuning gauge equipped as standard, owns an adjustable indicator and adjustable letters and can be repositioned very quickly from German to American playing style and vice versa.
