Ludwig to launch major timpani improvements
Ludwig is set to announce major changes to its renowned timpani range at the forthcoming NAMM show in Anaheim CA. is proud to announce a design update to all Grand Symphonic, Professional, and Standard Series Timpani.
A new tuning gauge placement will allow each Timpani to be configured with American or German set-up, with all tuning gauge linkage being removed from the pedal and seamlessly transferred under the base. A permanent third Omni wheel has been added under the pedal. This wheel allows 360º fluid movement, allowing the player to have total control of drum placement, an industry first for Timpani, says UK distributor Active Music. Further 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 to enable access through narrow doorways.
