      The perfect set for the aspiring timbalero!

      This percussion set includes the LPA256 Aspire Timbale Set and the blue, high-pitch LP1205 Jam Block.

      The timbale set is an affordable, quality set that is well suited to traditional Latin styles or as an adjunct to your regular kit. Timbales feature 13" and 14" diameters with 6" shells and have drum kit-style tuning. They offer characteristic timbale sound that projects well to cut through even the loudest bands. Includes heavy-duty adjustable stand, Aspire cowbell, cowbell holder, and key.

      LP Jam Blocks are the modern versions of the age-old wood blocks that were fragile and could not stand up to the rigors of aggressive touring. Crafted from LP's exclusive plastic formulation, Jam Blocks have the rich tone of wood blocks and the strength and durability to withstand even the hardest-hitting players. Comes with a heavy-duty mounting bracket and LP's famous eye-bolt assembly for easy mounting to any 3/8" diameter rod.

      Adds just the right amount of spice

      By guitarman7

      from Lander, Wyoming

      About Me Professional Musician

      Pros

      • Cuts thru the mix
      • Great Sound
      • Huge Tone

      Cons

      • Odd cowbell angle

      Best Uses

      • World rythm and Santana

      Comments about LP Aspire Timbale Set with High Pitch Jam Block:

      I am primarily a guitar player , but I wanted to add spice to our santana songs, so I just bought the apire set. But for the price the sound is pretty good. Just the right stuff for salsa and Santana sounds. The only minor complaint is the cowbell angle/adjustment, but this set works for me! The quality is there, and you can't miss with this purchase. I think for the price and quality LP/Aspire is a good buy.

      What's In A Name

      By eriffod

      from Benton Harbor, MI USA

      Comments about LP Aspire Timbale Set with High Pitch Jam Block:

      A few years after I sold my traps I became disabled. One day I saw Eddie Palmieri on TV and my love for drums was on fire. I went out and purchased the entire Aspire line of Latin Drums, fiberglass and wood bongos, fiberglass congas, all 3 sizes and timbales. There is nothing wrong with the bongos or congas other than the head diameters are smaller than LP's "professional" drums. Just like the bongos and congas, there is nothing wrong with the timbales, in fact being able to tune with a drum key instead of a wrench is rather nice. Again the head diameters are smaller than the "pro" models and 13" and 14" diameter drums don't sound like the standard 14" and 15". The other thing that floored me was how light the drums were. The internal steel strips in the "pro" drums are not behind tension lugs in the Aspire line. I didn't have a lot of bread and I purchased what I could afford. I bought LP and I still got the best with the Aspire Line.

      Perfect Latin Flavor

      By PandemoniumK

      from Quito, Ecuador

      Comments about LP Aspire Timbale Set with High Pitch Jam Block:

      As probably everyone else, I bought this timbales being a little short on cash, initially to use them as part of a percussion set, and ended up as a part of my drumset (when my previous band disolved). I must say, LP is, without a doubt, the best latin percussion instruments manufacturer out there... and I'm latin, so that's a lot to say! The sound of these babes is amazing, and the tuning system makes it perfect as an add-on for a drumset (which improves the latin beats amazingly). The coated heads also gives a different type of sound for timbales, which is really nice. The only problem I had was the cowbell holder. I had a red Jam Block instead of the blue one, and also included a LP Salsa Bell to the kit. The cowbell holder that comes with these timbales doesn't hold up too good, keeps getting loose and even throws the drums out of pitch. I had to place the bells and blocks in a straight cymbal stand, separately from the timbales, and the problem was solved... other than that, great buy! Wether it's for a timbalero or a drummer.

      Nice

      Comments about LP Aspire Timbale Set with High Pitch Jam Block:

      If you are short on cash, this is the set for you. I got this set and I really love it. If you are a latin music player, the only set back is the cowbell, go with an 8", but if you like additional cowbells, the set back is that you need a longer holder for the cowbells and the jam block. Overall, got to get it.

      I love these freakin' timbales

      Comments about LP Aspire Timbale Set with High Pitch Jam Block:

      When I saw the picture, I thought to myself that this set was going to look cheap. But having other LP Aspire items, I gave them a shot, and I am glad I did. Looks and sounds great for the starter TIMBALERO. If you are short on cash, the LP ASPIRE TIMBALES are the way to go. Need I say anything about the Jam Block. The only thing is that you may want to change out the cowbell for an 8".

      Really Nice Buy

      By MOE-yM.xF

      from Georgia

      Comments about LP Aspire Timbale Set with High Pitch Jam Block:

      I am very pleased with this buy. I have other LP products and I just couldn't afford the Matador ot the LP timbales, so I got the LP Aspire and I am happy to get them. They don't have the cheap look to them. The picture does not do this product justice.
