Based on extensive experience with our Custom Classic Series timpani we decided to equip the Performing Standard Series Timpani with exactly the same bowl as our pro models. The cambered shape guarantees great projection together with pure resonance and rich tone.

PST operating system SLB


Our Spring Loaded Balance system (SLB) guarantees a smooth and even pedal motion for tuning the Performing Standard Series Timpani. No slipping or cumbersome ratchet – just set it and forget it.



Both our copper and Fiber Force bowls are mounted on the bottom casting and isolated to allow free resonance of the bowl. The result is resonance that is both pure and ringing.

Portable Timpani System


Vancore Performing Standard Timpani are designed and constructed with one overriding goal – Easy Transport!By quickly unlocking a few screws the whole pedal unit can be folded up. The legs easilly fold up and just like that, your PS series timp is ready for transport! If you’re a timpanist who values portability, you’ll love the Vancore Performing Standard Series Timpani.


Tone Indicator


Performing Standard Timpani are equipped with a tone indicator directly linked to our SLB operating system. This system insures accurate, trouble free tuning indication. An efficient malletholder can be supplied as an option.


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