Yamaha TP8300R Professional Cambered Hammered Copper Timpani - Product Information

In addition to the extended musical range of each drum the series also has 24" and 27" drums available to maximize the musical potential.
- The Pedal Balance Spring System maintains the pitch even if the player removes his or her foot off the pedal. This series allows for a minor sixth per inch of pedal movement opening up a wide pitch range.
- The hammered bowls in this series feature a squared or cambered bowl shape. This shape serves to increase volume, decay and significantly improved mallet response. These machine hammered bowls bring out the best qualities of copper such a depth of tone and playability.
- The Pedal Adjustment Clutch (PAC) System allows pedal resistance to be adjusted while maintaining perfect pedal balance. A large knob makes adjustment easy.
- Large main casters are supplemented by a third caster below the pedal, allowing the instruments to glide smoothly and easily. A caster lock insures the drum will remain put once setup is achieved.
