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 6300 Intermediate Series timpani are ideal for high school and
college bands, orchestras, percussion ensembles, and marching bands.
With its sleek finish and pure resonance, the 6300 Series offers
professional-grade sound quality for all levels of repertoire. The 6300
Series uses smooth copper bowls spun to precision to ensure uniform wall
thickness for pure resonance and a beautiful tone. To further enhance
dynamic range and tonal projection, the bowls are freely suspended in a
steel support ring. This design allows pure, undistorted sound even at
dynamic extremes. Remo Renaissance heads with an aluminum insert ring
are included with all 6300 Intermediate series timpani.
In addition to its exceptional sound quality and value, the 6300
Series boasts many features that allow the performer to play in their
most natural and comfortable position. The recessed tension rods stay
out of the performer's way, especially during sweeping motions. The
cable-linked tuning gauge with letter and accidental indicators increase
the performer's tuning accuracy and provides convenient tuning changes
Pedal Balance Spring System
Pedal spring and head tension are balanced so the set pitch is
maintained even if the player removes his or her foot from the pedal.
Pitch changes across the entire range are smooth and easy.
Refined Kettle Design
In depth research into the effects of kettle edge angle and the
dimensions of the openings in the bottom of the kettle have resulted in
designs that bring out the most desirable characteristics of the copper
New Frame Design
The timpani frame does more than just support the kettle. It plays a
significant role in sound quality as well. Strength and playability
enhancements have been combined with artist feedback to create a new,
optimally balanced frame design. A suspension ring attached to the frame
provides a floating mount in which the kettle does not directly contact
the frame, allowing full, unrestricted resonance.
Yamaha Remo Renaissance Heads
Yamaha Remo Renaissance Heads with aluminum insert rings offer
outstanding expression with stable pitch and excellent durability. This
REMO Renaissance head enables a player to perform a rich musical
expression with a more stable pitch and durability.
Large Casters and Pedal Casters
Two types of casters that make moving and positioning Yamaha timpani
easy also allow height adjustment so that the height and angle of the
instruments can be precisely set as required. The large casters include a
one-touch lock mechanism that contributes to fast, sure setup.
It’s now easier than ever to move timpani room to room/stage with
difficulty as there is no longer a need to remove a timpani wheel as
located under the pedal in the now previous models.
All casters are equipped with 25mm-width height adjustment by which
the height and the angle of the head can be finely adjusted. This
enables the timpani to be played at any situation since the height can
be always changed to the most suitable position both for the sitting and
German Setup Support
The tuning gauge can be easily attached to the left or right side of
the instrument for compatibility with German system arrangements.
A tuning key/wrench holder that attaches to the side opposite the tuning gauge is included.
Large pedals have been adopted for easier operation. The pedal color is silver, making it easier to locate on a dark stage.
Recessed rod ears in rim keeps the tension rod heads well out of the
way of sweeping motions during play and cradles the timpani key for
Enclosed housing on tuning gauge increases durability, and maintains smooth movement of the pointer.
Black rim and tuning gauge reduces glare from lights and the sun while complementing black hardware.
Teflon tape on bearing edge provides whisper quiet tuning.
