Finally a transportable timpani with professional sound qualities.
Until now timpani players had to choose between either collapsible timpani without a professional sound or professional sounding timpani without the possibility of easy transport. All of the folding timpani on the market had their complete tension mechanisms inside the kettles. The newly invented and patented Prophonic timpani have finally solved the challenge of a fully suspended and free sounding timpani kettle.
The Prophonic combines the superior sound quality of the Symphonic Grand series with the easy transportability of the Harmonic series. In fact, the legs around the kettle protect the copper from damage and denting. The deep cambered copper kettle is made out of a single copper sheet, from bottom to rim. The kettle is fully suspended because there is no tuning mechanism inside, no steel rims on top and no tension blocks mounted. The result is the best possible sound characteristics.
Majestic Prophonic timpani are easy to travel with - 4 pieces can be moved in a larger vehicle and 2 pieces will fit inside the smallest car. They are also much easier to store because they need far less space than traditional timpani.
The kettle is deep drawn from a single copper sheet in deep cambered form for optimal resonance and sustain. Available in the full range of sizes: 20", 23", 26", 29" and 32" with a choice between hammered or glossy polished finish. Aluminum kettles are also available in the same deep cambered form as an economical alternative to copper and are finished in an attractive copper colour.
The pedal has a balance system with smooth action at any setting. Pedals on the back leg and both front legs are fully collapsible. A hand fine tuner is also available at an extra charge.
All Majestic timpani are fitted with an extremely accurate, easily adjustable and eye-pleasing tuning gauge.
