The distinctive cambered shape of Vancore’s copper bowl produces a warm, beautiful sonority with optimum projection throughout a wide dynamic range. A unique satin bowl finish reflects the high quality of workmanship put into every drum.

Pedal System SBP


Top Strainer [TS] | Easy to handle and fully adjustable, both height and snare tensioning. CC machined components like Delrin and special high quality anodized aluminium completes the strainer. “The absolute top level available.” Reliable and functional for the extreme demands in sound and function.

Bowl Suspension


To achieve unencumbered bowl resonance, our deep cambered bowl is totally suspended and completely free of the operating system. A precise bearing edge is highly polished and perfectly finished, which provides perfect head to bowl seating, critical for true pitch focus. The result is a beautiful rich sound and precisely balanced tuning throughout a wide tuning range.

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 an ultra precise tone indicator. The indicator is fully adjustable and readable whether viewed from a sitting or standing position. It is directly operated through direct contact with the counter hoop and therefore very accurate and precise.


Due to the application of the SBP system, the pitch range of these instruments is large and can be adjusted very easily.
