Timbales got their start as the rhythmic corner stone of Latin music and have progressed into the mainstream of virtually every musical genera. From professional models to the Primero series perfect for beginners, Pearl offers Timbales for every player.

Marc Quinones Signature Series

Designed in conjunction with one of today's premier percussionists, Marc's timbale set consists of standard 14" and 15" drums fitted with Remo Clear Ambassador heads, a double-braced tilting stand, and our top-selling PBL-30 Clave Block. The Polished Steel Timbale Shells have two inverse beads that not only add strength, but also produce a cutting "cascara" sound not hindered by normally outward facing beads. To further the "cascara" striking area, these timbales feature a 5-Lug design that is proportioned perfectly for maximum shell space with less lug interference. Tuning is a breeze with the top tuning lug design. This exclusive Pearl design cuts head-changing time in half. No more nuts and washers falling on the floor! Finally, the cowbell post features a Sympathetic Sound Dampening sleeve that keeps cowbells and blocks from ringing through the stand.

Primero Steel Timbale

Pearl's 13'' steel timbale is a full 7'' deep for a low timbale sound that makes it perfect for drum set applications, as a timbale or an additional tom. A PPS36 mounting bracket is included that attaches off a cymbal or hi-hat stand to place the timbale at the perfect angle.

13X3 Primero Flat Timbale

Pearl'sunique flat timbales makeit easily to add a Latin flare to your drum set or percussion rig. Two shell options, Brass and Steel give you a choice of pitches that will cut through to be heard. Each flat timbale includes an I.S.S. mount that takes up less space and eliminates having to add an additional stand to your existing configuration.
