The next generation of pedal timpani
Premier is renowned the world over for producing exceptional pedal timpani – it has been part of the company’s story for over 70 years and the unique characteristics of these instruments continue to be the reason why so many world-class orchestras, principal timpanists, concert halls and schools choose this iconic brand.
Now, Premier introduces the next generation of Concert Series pedal timpani. Another masterful blend of engineering and design DNA, with features and a quality of performance that is unmatched.
A host of refinements, including an improved pedal action, fibreglass bowls and international sizing, ensures these new pedal timpani are as good to look at they are to perform with.
Fibreglass parabolic bowl
Created to Premier's exacting standards, parabolic bowls produce darker, more natural tones making them much preferred for orchestral use. The precision manufacturing process ensure a consistent wall thickness whilst the curve of the parabola is such that the soundwaves are reflected through a single point.
A lightweight alternative to copper, fibreglass bowls offer lots of volume, excellent response and uncompromised sound quality. Ideal for portability or where budget is a consideration.
A 12" span throughout the entire range offers better tonal quality and greater flexibility.
Angled tuning gauge
The angled 'Shield' tuning gauge works directly from the pedal for maximum accuracy. Easy to set and see. Can be fitted on the left or right of the instrument (German or International method.)
2" oversized counterhoop
The combination of oversized counterhoop and extended head size gives outstanding resonance and projection over an increased tuning range.
Premier Remo Renaissance heads
Offers warm, dark, focussed tones, with dynamic sensitivity, enchanced articulation and full-range projection whilst an aluminium insert ring adds tuning stability.
