Ludwig’s Grand Symphonic timpani series reflects the evolution of design.
To this day, Ludwig’s patented Balanced Action™ tuning pedal is widely imitated, yet never matched. The new rolled-lip copper kettle is specially designed to hang within the suspension ring like a bell, extending the range to a 7th of the most overtone-free pitches ever to sound from a timpani. These one-piece bowls are hammered one at a time. Sturdy pull rods are built within the struts for safety and a clean appearance, while friction blocks sit astride the main horizontal pull rod, supporting the balanced action on both ends of the range. The reliable and fully adjustable pedal activated tuning gauge comes standard with all Ludwig timpani.
The Grand Symphonic, Professional, and Standard Series Timpani have all been updated with incredible new functionality.
American or German Tuning Gauge Set-UpNew tuning gauge placement will allow these drums to be configured with American or German set-up. All tuning gauge linkage has been removed from the pedal and seamlessly transferred under the base.
Permanent Third 360º Mobility WheelA permanent third omni wheel has been added under the pedal. This wheel allows 360º
fluid movement, allowing the player to have total control of drum placement.
Detachable Quick-Release Rear CastersImprovements have been made to the rear casters including upgraded braking, larger size wheels with a quick-release function. This allows smooth movement and the ability to quickly remove rear casters with ease.
- Ludwig Ensemble Smooth White Timpani Heads
