Adams Revolution Fiberglass Timpani with Fine Tuners - Product Information
Adams Revolution Fiberglass Timpani feature a innovative pedal system that is always perfectly in balance. The Revolution timpani is the very first Balanced Action System timpani on which you can use natural calf skins. A number of patented developments make this timpani a world leader.
Patented tension mechanism
Adams have developed a system that automatically spreads the tension of the head over all of the tuning screws. This means your timpani head is always equally in balance giving you a perfect and even tone. Now replacing or tuning a timpani head couldn’t be simpler!
Patented height adjustable system
This system allows you to adjust your timpani height (the complete balance system included) from 31.5″ to 35.5″. Ideal for younger musicians.
Patented wide range hand (fine)tuning
The wide range hand (fine)tuner allows you to play over 1 octave per timpani with the pedal being fitted. Without the pedal attached the range of the wide range hand (fine)tuner will be 9 halve tones. This allows greater flexibility and you can play, for example, a low G on both your 29″ and 26″ timpani.
Patented Balanced Pedal System
The Balanced Pedal Action that Adams have developed, makes it possible, for the first time, to play with natural skins on a balanced action system timpani.
Patented Un-coupling System and Frame Folding System
These systems make the Adams Revolution timpani very easy to transport. With one simple click you take off the kettle. As each timpani is fitted with a fine-tuner as standard, it is also possible to play the timpani without the pedal mechanism. Ideal for Baroque music when calf heads are fitted. After placing the kettle back on the frame again, it is locked by pushing the pedal down and you can play with the pedal again. The complete frame of the Adams Revolution timpani folds together making this timpani even easier to transport. An integrated handle makes this folded frame very easy to carry by hand.
