All Adams Symphonic Series Tympani bowls are press formed from a single sheet of supreme quality copper. Seamless and free of any welds or soldering, the bowl is allowed to resonant freely and evenly. The bowls are suspended by a strong, firm, contoured steel ring to maintain bowl roundness and offer the best protection during transport.
Adams Symphonic Timpani are available in the US and Canada by Special Order Only. Contact a Pearl / Adams Authorized Dealer for more information.
The Symphonic Series pedal mechanism is based upon the European style block system, also known as a clutch and post system. Unlike the professional series balanced action system, this type of block pedal system allows the fundamental pitch of the timpani to be easily altered without effecting pedal performance.
Our Symphonic Series timpani also offer an easy to operate fine tuner located on the player’s side.
Three wheels, two at the rear and one under the pedal mechanism, have been custom designed with a braking mechanism that prevents them from both turning and rotating. The wheels are also designed to eliminate any possibility of noise caused from vibration. Other great standard features include an easy to operate tuning gauge, and high quality Remo Renaissance Timpani heads with insert rings for increased rigidity and improved sound quality. The Adams Symphonic Series Timpani are offered in five bowl diameters, 20”, 23”, 26”, 29”, and 32”.
Unlike other common molding methods used to create Timpani bowls today, all Adams Symphonic Series Tympani bowls are press formed from a single sheet of supreme quality copper. Seamless and free of any welds or soldering, the bowl is allowed to resonant freely and evenly. This forming method also ensures an even thickness throughout the entire kettle, resulting in the ultimate in both tonal quality and projection. The bowls are suspended by a strong, firm, contoured steel ring to maintain bowl roundness and offer the best protection during transport.
Symphonic Series bowls are hammered to increase each drum’s frequency range and to produce a clear, pure tone. The Symphonic Series comes standard with parabolic shaped hammered bowls, but can also be special ordered with cambered hammered bowls, to further enhance the outstanding sound quality offered by these superb Timpani.

SYKH Hammered Copper
This type of bowl has the best price-quality ratio. Compared to the Polished Copper you pay a little more, but you get a tone that is more focused and direct.

Available range for Universal, Professional and Symphonic Timpani
Every Adams copper timpani bowl is formed by deep drawing a single sheet of red copper in our own factory. Contrary to other molding methods, deep drawing has the great advantage of maintaining the same thickness throughout the bowl which is extremely important for a good sound.
