The ultimate portable timpani. Shallow drop covers come standard with all Ludwig Timpani. As timpanist of the Pittsburgh Symphony, William F. Ludwig, Sr. shared a love for the classical works that was only equaled by his passion to perform them on-stage. Whether playing before a sold out symphony hall � or one nearly empty � Ludwig performed every note as if it were his final heartbeat. In 1909, Ludwig, being the purist he was, grew rather frustrated when the hand-tuned timpani of the day made it difficult to play Wagnerian parts to his liking. But it wasn't long before his frustration turned to inspiration. With a more practical, portable pedal-tuned timpani pictured in mind, the accomplished timpanist took on the role of part-time inventor. Standard series tuning gauges are hoop activated for a reliable option for most timpani. Available on all standard, universal and machine models. An all-directional third wheel may be attached under the floor pedal if greater mobility is desired. Third Wheel Timpani Assembly Fits Grand Symphonic, Professional and Standard Model P1423The patented Balanced Actionand#8482 tuning pedal moves smoothly through the range. No locks or ratchets are needed to hold pitch. An ingenious profile collar extends the head beyond the edge of the kettle to project greater resonance, pitch definition, and easily controlled, accurate tuning. Undisturbed, undistorted tone is the result of the double-ring suspension system and seamless , one-piece angle steel counter hoops. Timpani Tuning Gauges Professional (Pedal) Model Description LKU332FH 32" Gauge The Profess ional Series pedal-operated tuning gauge is accurate, reliable and fully adjustable. With the foot pedal swivel linkage and gauge in front of the player, tuning and adjustment of letters is quick and precise. Not surprisingly, Ludwig's earliest designs and models failed. Hydraulically operated hoses leaked. Cables stretched. But he was determined and never lost heart � perfecting the music was far too important to him. Then, in 1921, after years of disappointments, he struck perfection. The Balanced Actionand#8482 model he developed back then remains to this day the standard in timpani design and sound quality held around the world. You need only to hear the difference in a Ludwig Timpani to judge for yourself. Ludwig's Timpani embody the heart and soul of everyone who plays or dedicates their lives to music. Because just as there's more to playing music than reading notes on a page, there's more to crafting timpani than shaping copper.
