Adams Revolution Smooth Copper Timpani with Fine Tuners - Product Information

Adams Revolution Smooth Copper Timpani feature an 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 1/2" to 35 1/2". 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 half tones. This allows greater flexibility and you can play e.g. 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. Timpani Covers are included with each drum.

Great Sound

Comments:

I bought the 26" and 29" smooth copper timps last year with the help of Dan Sullivan at SW. The whole experience was great. The drums sound great. The tone is clear and full. The range of these drums is unbelievable. I had to get the 29" down to a D for a piece. (I'll be purchasing the 32" soon). Thankfully it was a roll, but the fundamental was still very prominent there. The upper end of the range is where the drums sound very full. They hold the pitches wonderfully, even after the loudest passages. I can fit these two in the back of my little hatchback, so I can take them anywhere. No more minivans for me. My only problem is with the tuning gauge. Sometimes the movement of the gauge is so small, that the blocks don't fit. I will just have to make my own smaller ones. Great timpani. I highly recommend for the gigging professional.
