Info Full description
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 Elite 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, polished copper bowls and international sizing, ensures these new pedal timpani are as good to look at they are to perform with.

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 sound waves are reflected through a single point.

The exceptional well-rounded tone quality and musical range derives from the unique characteristics of copper and the superb, highly-polished bowl.

A 12" span throughout the entire range offers better tonal quality and greater flexibility. 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.)

Elite pedal timpani are equipped with a fine-tuning crown wheel, in addition to the pedal, which permits overall fine tuning and/or a temporary change in the entire range of the instrument, up or down in pitch.

The combination of oversized counter hoop and extended head size gives outstanding resonance and projection over an increased tuning range.

The Premier Remo Renaissance heads offer warm, dark, focused tones, with dynamic sensitivity, enhanced articulation and full-range projection whilst an aluminium insert ring adds tuning stability.
