Yamaha Timpani Key

The Yamaha TK40 Timpani Key is essential to tuning and maintaining the tonal qualities of Timpani.

Great key for a great price

Comments:

After using this key for almost three years, I've never had a problem with it. It's a great build and works great, all for under $8

Yamaha Timpani Key

Comments:

Other reviewers have stated how fantastic this product is, and I just want to reiterate that. Most timpani keys (like Ludwig and Pearl models) are $25+. This key was $7.95 when I purchased it, and functions just as well as any of the other keys, if not having the shiny "philharmonic" look of the other ones. In a nutshell? There is not a single reason in the world to buy any other key.

Great price!

Comments:

I've always been confused as to why timpani keys are so expensive. I bought one of these a while back from another retailer and it has worked great, but now seeing the price on Steve Weiss, I wish I would have waited. The best reasonably priced key on the market!

Does what it's supposed to do

Comments:

It works, the timpani are in tune, it's inexpensive, and seems sturdy enough. The kind of thing an orchestral percussionist should have somewhere in his gig bag.

Great price, great product

Comments:

I got this so I could give some TLC to an abused drum at my university, unsure of the brand or model of the drum but knowing that it had square pegs. Works like a charm with most square models, I would guess.

Why buy any other timpani key?

Comments:

No, even if you are a professional you don't need a 20 dollar timpani key. I have used this key and I have used a similar one that sells for about 20 dollars made by Ludwig. Surprise surprise, they work exactly the same. Why buy any other timpani key?
