Soon I will sell another pair of brass TOP baroque timpani.
These drums , built in app 1880 by Maheu are absolute top drums built for the Romantic repertoire. The RCO bought 2 of these drums in 1888 as side timpani for their Queisser pedal drums.
The sizes are 26.5 and 29.5 so perfect for the late Classical and Romantic period performances. The Maheu timpani are numbered and in exquisite condition. Pictures will follow (but they resemble the baroque timpani below)
to the University of Miami
For sale for the serious buyer:
A pair of baroque timpani from my own collection. They are in perfect state and have a fantastic sound. Used in many RCO recordings.
made by Spenke & Metzl (Dresdener Apparatebau). 25 en 28 inch with Calfo skins.
