Adams introduces the Schnellar Series timpani, the world famous sound of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam, a sound now available to the rest of the world for the very first time. These new timpani were painstakingly developed based on the original Schnellar timpani the Concertgebouw Orchestra used for decades, while utilizing modern Adams innovations to optimize the power and complexity of these magnificent instruments.

A unique base with only three legs was developed to enhance the tonal character of a unique tuning system, in which the tension rods and head stay stationary, while the bowl itself moves vertically to change pitch. Special calf heads feature a claw tension system, eliminating the counterhoop, which helps produce the pure tones of the pointed, hammered copper shells. Adams Schnellar timpani are available in 20", 23", 25", 26", 28", 29", and 32" sizes.

Schnellar timpani are also available in "Kurbel " or Hand Crank versions without pedal mechanisms by Special Order.
