Ludwig Professional Series Timpani

For more than 35 years the Ludwig Professional Series timpani have set the standard for performance. A double-ring suspension system isolates the kettle completely from the tuning mechanism and provides great depth of tone. A profile collar that extends the head beyond the kettle edge for greater resonance and pitch definition. Ludwig Professional Models are available in your choice of hammered seamless copper or polished seamless copper. The reliable and fully adjustable pedal activated tuning gauge comes standard with all Ludwig timpani.

Key Improvements

The Grand Symphonic Series Timpani has been updated with incredible new functionality.

New tuning gauge placement will allow these drums to be configured with American or German set-up All tuning gauge linkage has been removed from the pedal and seamlessly transferred under the base.

A permanent third omni wheel has been added under the pedal. This wheel allows 360° fluid movement, allowing the player to have total control of drum placement.

Improvements have been made to the rear casters including upgraded braking, larger size wheels with a quick-release function. This allows smooth movement and the ability to quickly remove rear casters with ease.
