With more than 40 years of experience as timpani makers, Adams is the world leader in timpani design and innovation. Available in 9 unique models ranging from timeless and vintage to modern quality and consistency.
Adams Revolution Series Timpani have a number of patented developments that combine truly professional performance sound quality with an innovative balanced action pedal system, height adjustment system, wide range hand fine-tuner, and a removable, folding base for true portability. For the first time ever, calf heads can be used on a balanced action pedal, and an octave can be achieved from each drum with the range tuner. There has never been a more practical, portable, high-quality instrument.
The base and bowl of the Revolution Series Timpani easily separate without tools, making these the only truly portable high-quality drums available. When separated from the base, each Revolution drum maintains tension and has a range of a 5th using the hand fine tuner feature. The base itself folds and locks and can be easily carried away using the built-in handle. The oversized double locking swivel casters combined with the permanently installed locking third wheel assembly on the pedal help the Revolution drums glide with fingertip effort.
Revolution timpani are available in standard sizes in Fiberglass bowl without the fine tuner, as well as Smooth Copper and Hand-hammered Copper bowls with the fine tuner. Drums include tuning gauges, short nylon drop covers and mutes. Padded bags are available to protect the drums while in transport with heavy-duty handle straps that make moving the Revolution drums easier than any other balanced action drum.
