Pair of black nickel timbales designed as a tribute to legendary Cuban timbalero Amadito Valdés

These MEINL Artist Series Amadito Valdés timbales are a stunning tribute to one of the greatest timbaleros ever. From his work with the Cuban vocal group Cuarteto d’Aida to his collaboration with the iconic Buena Vista Social club, his impact on contemporary timbale playing is unquestionable. This matched pair of signature timbales is made from black nickel shells and fitted with MEINL’s Floatune Tuning system. They produce a dry and cutting sound. And the antique bronze finish lets everyone know these are no regular timbales—they are fit for the legend for whom they are named.

These premium timbales come with a collection of accessories and hardware, including a cowbell holder, adjustable double-braced tripod stand, L-shaped tuning key, accessory pouch and some tune-up oil.

The drums measure 14 and 15” and feature sturdy steel hoops.
