Philharmonic Dresden Classic

Adams Philharmonic Dresden Classic Timpani combine the timeless sound of vintage Dresden style drums with modern production quality and consistency. Dresden Classic Timpani offer a quick response and tone projection along with a fundamental presence and fullness unlike any other. Hammered copper bowls are supported by a specially designed high strength suspension ring and cast steel struts that decrease the pressure on the frame and help prevent any flex or changes in the shape of the frame or bowl.

 

Adams' Dresden style pedal mechanism features a traditional ratchet and clutch foot-operated design and a patent-pending folded split rocker arm eliminating the need for a transfer bar. This traditional ratchet-style Dresden pedal mechanism provides players a familiar feel of natural head resistance.
