LP Tito Puente Bronze Timbalitos are the smallest-diameter drums in the series. LP designed Timbalitos after a close study of the sounds Tito Puente produced. Recognizing that shell composition is the key to an authentic cascara and complex harmonics from the heads, LP employs the same phosphor bronze in the drum shells as that used in cymbals.
The LP272-BZ timbalito shell is thicker than in previous drums producing more bite and warmth. Rimshots are more resonant and the dynamic range achieved with sticks or fingers is wider. LP includes a heavy-duty, height-adjustable tilting stand, cowbell bracket, pair of sticks, and tuning wrench with Tito Puente Bronze Timbalitos.
