Repaired and Refurbished Ludwig fiberglass set of four Professional Series timpani: 32”, 29”, 26”, 23”.
With New Renaissance Extended Heads: $6800.00.
The fiberglass suspended bowls with external spider rods and extended collars have been reconditioned and are finished in an acrylic copper color. The struts, bases, and support rings have all been powder coated. (prepared by Custom Timpani, Fullerton, ND.) Repair and refurbishing has been done here in Enumclaw by Paul T. Jackson.
The timpani are complete with nearly new Renaissance heads and replaced caster wheels.
The timpani have been completely adjusted and tuned.
Bowls’ suspensions have been adjusted and firmed with rubber spacers so as to sit correctly and not shift off center.
Metal head bearing edges have been refurbished; sanded and steel-wooled smooth. New Teflon tape has been applied to edges for smoother tuning and less wear on the heads, except the 23” (it didn’t sound good with the tape on, so I removed it and steel-wooled the bearing edges to fine smooth almost velvet surface and greased.)
Rubber bumpers have been attached to the bottom of the heel arm to reduce tendency for forward motion of the timpani while tuning. They also keep the heads level for better forward sound.
Casters, with shafts that were too long, have been replaced with correct length shaft and locking mechanism.
Some breaks on bases (due to shipping improperly) have been expertly welded by a metal engineering firm.
Handmade thick head protectors are included with fleece on the bottom (head side) to avoid scratches to the heads, and water resistant coating on top.
I have performed recently with these several times for an orchestra, brass, and chamber ensembles
These are very resonating, similar to the expensive Yamaha set.
