Philharmonic Light

Adams Philharmonic Light Timpani represent the ultimate expression of quality in timpani sound and design. Philharmonic Light Timpani are in the classic European style with the most technologically advanced features and bowl designs ever developed.

Every Philharmonic Light bowl is made of the highest quality select copper and is drawn from one single piece without seams or soldering. Every detail of these superior bowls, from the shape of the lip, to the taper and depth, has been developed through years of research in conjunction with timpani virtuosos from around the world. The shape of the bowl, combined with the construction and design of the Philharmonic Light frame, produces a drum that will not distort or go sharp as the player increases volume and power. From a soft whisper to the loudest end of the dynamic spectrum, Adams Philharmonic Light Timpani project beautifully and are virtually impossible to overplay.
