STUDIO 49 Timpani feature a body made of firmly laminated hardwood, tunable skin head, and adjustable legs. Richness and purity of the beat depends on the precise, all-around tuning of the head. The required pitch must by obtained by adjusting all the tension screws. The natural skins have a warmer timbre than the somewhat dry sound of plastic heads.
