Hawkes / Potter’s timpani – larger ensemble set-up

Many of my period-style timpani are refurbished drums made in the early or middle part of the 20th Century that started out being much deeper.  Hawkes are most commonly found, but there are many other makes such as Parsons, Besson, Boosey, Hards and Ajax.  Follow the “Timpani purchase and conversion” link below to see how we do this. The result is an ‘as new’ timpani with a conventional ‘half-round’ classical shape, or a more straight-sided baroque shape. A set of 4 for classical repertoire are sizes 22″, 24″, 26″ & 27.5″.  I usually use goat heads on these late classical / romantic drums.
