New members of my orchestra




The big bass drum I have had for a while, as per the label it came from a pipe band in Bay of Plenty (one day i will peel off the ‘PIPES’ part and replace it with ‘BASS’) but I picked up the two Ludwig timpani yesterday after getting them for a bargain online… And funnily enough they are ex a brass band as well, although a more local one… They don’t have the pedals for tuning, but it seems they can take the pedals – there is a tuning gauge on the side of each, which has movable markers for notating tuning… So my next mission is to find pedals for them! But OMG I love their tonality & deep resonance, I just have to stop myself from playing the theme to 2001 on them!!
