Although portable, the TP-3300 Series Timpani deliver fully professional, world-class sound. They feature aluminum bowls with the same shape as our flagship models, Renaissance heads and hoops that work together to create a deep, sustained tone. The lightweight aluminum bowls and the ease with which the pedals and legs can be retracted make the entire system conveniently compact and portable.
In addition, no effort has been spared in achieving the smoothest, easiest possible operation and adjustment. Castors that allow smooth movement, pedals with a stable operating feel, and leg and pedal height that adjust easily all add up to stress free overall operation.
The TP-3300 Series Timpani use aluminium bowls with the same shape as the flagship models. Our in-depth research into the effects of bowl edge angle and the dimensions of the openings in the bottom of the bowl determined our designs that bring out the most desirable characteristics of the aluminium materials used.
The dimensions of the bowls have been carefully designed to allow even beginners to bring out the full sonic potential of these instruments with ease.
Yamaha Remo Renaissance Heads
Our Remo Renaissance heads with aluminium insert rings offer outstanding expression with stable pitch and excellent durability.
The TP-3300 Series models are equipped with the same hoops as our top-line models, offering high rigidity plus improved integration between head and bowl that brings out the instrument’s full sonic potential.
Compact and Portable
The lightweight aluminum bowls and the ease with which the pedals and legs can be retracted make the entire system conveniently compact and portable.
New, large castors make it easier than ever to move the timpani around. New castor locks have also been designed to prevent movement when the pedal is operated. (Castor diameter: 75mm)
Smooth, stable pedal operation when playing at any pitch has been achieved through a new optimised spring design.
The ability to adjust the length of the legs and therefore the height of the bowl makes it easy to set the instrument to the most comfortable height for individual players. The leg pipes use a square cross-section that prevents rotation during adjustment, making the adjustment procedure straightforward. The leg bolts are designed to be easy to tighten. The stopper below the pedal has been designed to fit comfortably in the hand. (Head height adjustment range: 79-82cm)
The TP-3300 Series Timpani come with the same tuning indicator that we include with our top-line models. The indicator rail and pointer are carefully constructed of materials that contribute to smooth operation without producing noise. The indicator can also be easily relocated to the left or right side of the instrument, allowing the percussionist to switch between German and international setups.
