Unlike other common molding methods used to create Timpani bowls today, all Adams Professional GEN 2 Series Timpani bowls are press formed from a single sheet of supreme quality copper. Seamless and free of any welds or soldering, the bowl is allowed to resonant freely and evenly. This forming method also ensures an even thickness throughout the entire kettle, resulting in the ultimate in both tonal quality and projection. The bowls are suspended by a strong single flange chrome steel ring to maintain bowl roundness and offer the best protection during transport.

Adams Shell

Professional Series bowls are hammered to increase each drum’s frequency range and to produce a clear, pure tone. The Symphonic Series comes standard with parabolic shaped hammered bowls, but can also be special ordered with cambered hammered bowls, to further enhance the outstanding sound quality offered by these superb Timpani.

P2DH Hammered Cambered Copper

Adams Professional Generation II Shell

This type of bowl is our top-of-the-range model. The quality of the tone is really focused. The tone is very warm. This type of bowl is used in the Professional series, Symphonic series and Philharmonic series timpani.

P2KH Hammered Copper

Adams Professional Generation II Shell

This type of bowl has the best price-quality ratio. Compared to the Polished Copper you pay a little more, but you get a tone that is more focused and direct.

P2KG Polished Copper

Adams Professional Generation II Shell

Copper gives a richer and more vivid tone than fiberglass. There is only a small difference in weight compared to fiberglass, but a much improved projection and sustain.

P2FI Fiberglass

Adams Professional Generation II Shell

The main characteristics of fiberglass timpani are a lower weight and cost effectiveness. The fiberglass Professional Series drums offer a great value and fantastic performance quality.


All Adams Professional GEN2 Series timpani arrive with tuning gauge standard, short drop covers, mutes, Remo Renaissance heads, and tuning key.

Available range for Universal, Professional and Symphonic Timpani
