ANAHEIM (January 23, 2014) — Yamaha is featuring the new 4300, 6300 and 7300 Series timpani models at the 2014 NAMM Show.
Continued improvements in design and manufacturing have earned Yamaha percussion products a loyal following from high school bands to professional symphony orchestras worldwide. Now, Yamaha Band & Orchestral Division brings improvements in both look and sound to its successful and reliable timpani line with the 4300, 6300 and 7300 Series.
New bowl and frame designs provide deeper, richer tones, better overall pitch clarity, more natural sustain and tonal accuracy. An adjustable mount- tuning gauge allows players to easily arrange setups between German or American configurations, while new wheel designs that feature height-adjustable, larger casters and adjustable third wheels provide better portability.
The 7300 Series, with a Hammered Copper bowl, provides a higher end look and feel for high school through professional level applications. With a Spun Copper bowl, the 6300 Series is a more upscale option for high schools and universities, as well as drum corps and other independent marching ensembles.
Ideal for middle and high school symphonic and concert ensembles, model 4300 Series features a suspended Spun Aluminum bowl that produces a much more natural sound and sustain, and provides a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional fiberglass.
"Overall, Yamaha Timpani have been consistent in both quality and sound," said Troy Wollwage, marketing manager, Percussion Instruments, Yamaha Corporation of America. "But thanks to our new state-of-the-art factory, this series also improves something of equal importance: manufacturing consistency. The end result is a remarkable set of drums that both teacher and student can enjoy. Those making purchasing decisions for their organization will know they made a great investment."
The Yamaha 7300, 6300 and 4300 series Timpani are shipping.
