Schnellar Amsterdam

Adams Schnellar Amsterdam Series Timpani were painstakingly developed based on the original Schnellar timpani used by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam for over a century while utilizing modern Adams innovations to optimize the power and complexity of these magnificent instruments.

 

Adams Schnellar Amsterdam timpani developed based on the original Schnellar timpani while utilizing modern Adams innovations to optimize the power and complexity of these magnificent instruments.

 

Adams Schnellar Amsterdam Series Timpani feature a unique base with only three legs to enhance the tonal character of its distinct tuning system in which the tension rods and head remain stationary, while the bowl itself moves vertically to change pitch. Special calf heads feature a claw tension system, eliminating the counterhoop, which helps produce the pure tones of the pointed, hammered copper shells. Models are also available with Remo Renaissance heads and counterhoops.

 

Schnellar Timpani come standard with flight cases and a wheeled cart for easy transportation.

 

Schnellar timpani are also available in "Kurbel " or Hand Crank versions without pedal mechanisms by Special Order.
