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.

Elite Brass

Pearl's Elite Timbales come in 13", 14" and 15" sizes. These professional Timbales feature brass shell construction that provides the ultimate Timbale voice. The exclusive 7.5" depths with rolled bearing edges provide cutting "cascara," while the powder-coated steel hardware provides powerful rimshots and spectacular tuning integrity. The PTB-5145 is a Timbale complete set of a 14" and 15" Brass shell including a Tilting Timbale stand.

Primero Pro Steel

The Primero Pro Steel Timbales are a budget conscious timbale set packed with professional features. The heavy-duty double braced tilting stand securely supports the 14" & 15" steel shells that are 7" deep for added projection and greater cascara surface area. The cowbell mount is included on Pearl's PT900W Timbale stand making set-up and teardown possible in seconds. Tuning wrench and sticks are included.

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 timbale makes it easily to add a Latin flare to your drum set or percussion rig. The steel shell 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.
