With a copper bowl, sleek design, and superior sound quality.
The Yamaha TP-6229 Intermediate Series 29” Pedal Timpani has freely suspended, smooth copper bowls that provide pure, harmonious resonance. A REMO Renaissance head with aluminum insert ring improves resonance and dynamic range. Recessed ears in rim keeps the tension rod heads well out of the way of sweeping motions during play and cradle the timpani key for solid adjustments. A reinforced third wheel attachment gives secure hold during transport.
The Yamaha TP-6229 timpani is equipped with a unique pedal balance spring mechanism (a coil spring counteracting the tension of the head) which allows you to freely change the pitch (note) of the instrument at an instant. Yamaha-exclusive Streamlined Pedal Adjustment Clutch (PAC) system allows player to adjust pedal feel to individual playing style.
A cable-linked tuning gauge comes standard. Letter and accidental indicators provide more visual tuning accuracy. Enclosed housing on the tuning gauge increases durability and maintains smooth movement of the pointer. Teflon tape on bearing edge provides whisper quiet tuning. Heavy-duty 4" locking casters deliver easier mobility. Matte black hardware has a sleek look with reduced glare.
A superior choice for high school and college timpanists.
