Majestic Symphonic Grand Timpani
Players at many levels require high performance...
Majestic has designed the Symphonic Grand series to include professional features and tone while incorporating a less complex block style pedal system with both hand and foot fine tuners for easy and precise tuning. Cambered copper kettles are standard equipment and are available with precision hammered or polished finish.
The cast frame features two main wheels and a double caster under the pedal arm, making it easy to move. Double locking wheels keep the drums securely in place by controlling both roll and swivel motions. Combining high performance features with state-of-the-art manufacturing, Majestic’s Symphonic Grand series offers professional level timpani to a wider range of players.
Seamless, deep drawn from single copper sheet. Computer controlled process for consistency. Cambered bowl for optimal resonance and sustain. Full range of sizes; 32”, 29”, 26”, 23” and 20”.
