Hammered copper bowls providing unequaled tone quality, the PAC system, and sleek design make the 7300 Professional Series the best choice for collegiate and professional timpanists.
The next generation of Yamaha timpani includes a completely redesigned frame that enables maximum sustain from the suspended bowl or kettle and ensures reliable long-term operation. Special attention was given to the bowl design to improve consistency and give each new series a deep rich tone. A new wheel design and improved pedal mechanics allow vast position options and smooth reliable pedal operation. The tuning gauge is now movable, allowing its position to accommodate both German and American setup options.
The 7300 Professional Series timpani are the premier choice for colleges and professionals. With its sleek, black finish and pure resonance, the 7300 Series delivers the maximum quality of sound for all levels of performance. The 7300 Series features a hammered bowl, freely suspended bowls ensuring a clear fundamental pitch with less unwanted overtones. The weight and rigidity of the 4mm drawn steel rim provides consistent tension throughout the tuning range.
