Product information "Baroque timpano"

The Kolberg baroque timpani combine traditional baroque sound characteristics and vintage appearance with modern production technology. An innovative tuning mechanism gives you the choice between traditional screw timpani and crank timpani. The flat oval hand-hammered copper bowls allow a very clear, bright and percussive sound with precise articulation. The timpani thus fit perfectly into the sound of baroque and early classical literature and are suitable for both chamber music ensembles and symphony orchestras.

The bowl is made with traditional craftsmanship from three high quality copper sheet segments and is hammered completely by hand. Based on the historical timpani, the bowl is produced with a dark, vintage surface. The sound quality is refi ned by the flat and very narrow bowl rim supports.



The frame is made of hammered wrought iron, black-copper powder-coated and is thus extremely scratch- and shockproof. The timpano is constructed in the historical 7 tensioning screw division. In the standard version, the timpano is equipped with 3 sturdy fully locking swivel casters with solid rubber tread. Upon request, gliders can be mounted. A version without casters or gliders is also possible. Playing height with casters: approx. 81 cm / Playing height with gliders: approx. 74 cm / Playing height basic: approx. 71 cm



The baroque timpano has a tuning crank and can be played as a crank timpano. Alternatively, a discreet small T-shaped fi ne tuner handle (see PRFST accessory) can be mounted on the central tuning rod with square mount. Another tuning variant is provided by wing screws (see accessory PRFFSB) plugged on the heads of the tensioning screws. In this way the baroque timpano becomes a traditional screw timpano. The tuning rod is provided with a hardened tip, which permanently prevents the wear of the rod thread.
