LP Tito Puente Series Timbales
For all genres of music
When Latin Percussion, Inc. was founded in the 1960s, timbales were only heard in Latin music. Today, more than three decades later, all genres of music have embraced this versatile percussion instrument. LPs experience in building timbales has resulted in a distinctive, modern shell, that uses a ribbed design with both top and bottom edges turned in, to create a livelier, more cutting "cascara" (the sound produced when striking the side of the shell).Complete with a chrome plated stand
All LP Tito Puente Timbales, Thunder Timbs, and Timbalitos are sold complete with a chrome plated, heavy duty, steel Timbale Stand. The stand has a die cast, geared tilter that locks in tight for either straight or tilted playing. It is height adjustable, and also has an anti-rattle sleeve. It comes complete with an adjustable cowbell holder made from welded steel and features LPs superior eye-bolt assembly. LP Timbale Shells are available in genuine stainless steel, solid brass, or bronze each possessing its own distinct sound. The genuine stainless steel shells produce very bright and crisp, loud sounds the solid brass shells produce warmer sounds the bronze produces a superior and distinctive cutting cascara sound.
