When you want to see the impressive musical range that percussion can cover, look no further than Majestic. With a huge selection of timpani, chimes, bells, tubes and more, the Majestic lineup runs the gamut of melodic percussion with fantastic options for whichever of these instruments you play. Based in the Netherlands, Majestic was founded in 1921 so you've also got the confidence of knowing there's nearly a century of experience standing behind everything they make. Today, the business is still carefully supervised by the family of its founder, Willem Klazes van der Glas. The result is reliable build quality that you can count on for consistently solid performances.
If you're a drummer, start by taking a look at instruments like the Majestic MTG02AP Timpani Harmonic Series 26 & 29 Inch Set or the Prophonic Series Polished Timpano - 26". These are great examples of Majestic's timpani family, which goes all the way up to five-piece sets like the MP05A Symphonic Series Timpani. They've also got a good selection of snares and basses, including the Prophonic Concert Snare Drum and the Majestic Prophonic Bass Drum with SSB Suspended Concert Tilting Stand. All in all, you're looking at an immense variety of premium instruments ready to perform in any orchestra.
For those of us who prefer our melodic percussion more lyrical, there's no shortage of xylophones, marimbas, vibraphones and orchestra bells to choose from in Majestic's selection. Chimes are also present and accounted for, from the Majestic Quantum Field Chimes for marching bands and outdoor concerts, to the 18-Note Chimes with 1-1/4" Tubes for an indoor setting. You can always expect big sound from Majestic, even if it's something as small as the Gateway Series 2.5 Octave Synthetic Bar Marching/Tabletop Piccolo Xylophone.
No matter which size of melodic percussion instrument fits your needs, you can find it in Majestic's broad catalog. There are also carrying bags available for the more portable-sized instruments, so you won't just find great sound quality here - you'll even have what you need to carry it from one performance to the next. From any angle, there's no doubting that Majestic is a musician's choice through-and-through.
