Timpani Types

From high-end models designed to meet the sonic demands of professional players through entry-level models that provide an optimum balance between portability and tone, Yamaha offers Timpani that meet a wide range of requirements. This section describes the differences between each series.

Changing Pitch

Pedal Balance Spring System

Pedal Balance Spring System
(TP-7300, 6300, 4300, 3100 Series)

This type of pedal mechanism facilitates glissandos and other advanced playing techniques. The tensions of the pedal spring and Timpani head are balanced so that the set pitch is maintained even if the player removes his or her foot from the pedal.

Bowl Materials

Hammered Copper Bowls

Hammered Copper Bowls
(TP-7300 Series)

Precise, uniform hammering applied to copper bowls results in significantly improved attack, sustain, and pitch definition. The sound is clear with solid, well-defined lows.

Copper Bowls

Copper Bowls
(TP-6300 Series)

Copper is the traditional Timpani shell material. Techniques handed down through the centuries are augmented by modern technology and refinements that are applied to high-purity copper to achieve a well-rounded tone that is both deep and clear.

Aluminum Bowls

Aluminum Bowls
(TP-4300, 3100 Series)

Lightweight aluminum bowls are the key to superior portability and handling. Yamaha technology ensures that they deliver sound that is close to that of our high-end models.
