Belted Horse Timpani

For cavalry, mounted music corps and historic formations

As a worldwide known timpani manufacturer with almost 100 years of experience, it is tradition for us to make special horse timpani with excellent sound qualities and low weight.

Our belt mechanism provides a central tuning and a quick changing of the pitch by a crank.

The entire mechanism is under the counterhoop, which ensures smooth playing even at irregular gait. Besides, each timpani has a tuning gauge.

The appearance of these timpani fits perfectly into the historical context.

The specially sized hammered copper bowls have a large sound volume, but let the horse have a great freedom of movement.

Special plastic heads have an appearance which is similar to skin and offer a natural sound; they are also extremely weather resistant.
