Custom Classic Series Timpani | Performing Standard Series Timpani


Custom Classic Series Timpani

Many years of research have resulted in the development of Custom Classic Series Timpani. These instruments have been developed in close cooperation with prominent professional timpanists who were unsatisfied with existing timpani and tuning systems. Vancore designers and engineers have spent counless hours working with and listening to demanding professioals. The result is a world-class instrument, which will be the envy of every discriminating timpanist.


The distinctive cambered shape of Vancore’s brass bowl produces a beautiful classic sound with optimum projection throughout the wide dynamic range. Our unique satin finish reflects the high quality of workmanship put into every drum.

Operating and Pedal system: SBP
The Custom Classic Series timpani are operated through the redesigned and exclusive” Self braking pedal” system. Carefully designed, this system operates smoothly, reliably and comfortably. High quality components and design expertise combine to guarantee trouble free performance for many years.


Our deep cambered bowl is totally suspended and completely free of the operating system. The precise bearing edge is highly polished and perfectly finished, which provides perfect head to bowl seating. The result is silky smooth sound and precisely balanced tuning.

Fine Tuning System
An optional fine-tuning system is available. This exclusive system operates totally free of the pedal mechanism and provides micro adjustment of pitch.


Tone indicator
The Custom Classic Series timpani are supplied with a very effective and exclusive tone indicator.
The indicator is fully adjustable and readable whether playing sitting or standing. It is directly operated through the 3-mm counterhoop, and therefore very accurate and precise.

Due to the application of the SBP system, the pitch range of these instruments can be called unique, and can be adapted very easily.





Custom Classic Series Fiberforce
The Custom Classic Series Timpani can also be supplied with the unique Vancore Fiber Force shell. Utilizing a special composite material, we can manufacture a lightweight bowl, which is both resonant and focused in pitch. Like our heacy-duty copper bowls,these bowls are cambered for fullness of sound.
