Timpani Cases & Gig Bags
It doesn't matter whether you're playing a single timpani or an entire set, every drum deserves to be treated with respect. And to ensure they're always in their best shape, you need to take care of them - both on and off the stage. Timpani cases and gig bags offer the ideal way to keep your kettledrums safe in between practice sessions and performances. With the size of timpani and their built-in stands, it only makes sense that cases and gig bags for these instruments generally take the form of drop covers. This section is home to everything from shallow and full drop covers, mallet covers and more, so if you've come here to outfit your timpani with the protective gear it needs to stay in tip-top playing condition, you're definitely in the right spot.
Choosing the perfect timpani case or gig bag comes down to two key factors: the size of the drum and the type of protection it needs. For example, if you're set up at home and only need to cover the playing surface of your timpani, you may be interested in the Yamaha Timpani Cover. Ranging in sizes between 20 and 32 inches, this leatherette disc rests on top of the head of your drum and protects it from dust, dirt and other debris.
Now, if you want to protect your entire drum, a full drop cover is a must. The Yamaha TDC04L Timpani Drop Cover Set is a great option if you need to cover your full set of drums. It comes with four different covers - 23", 26", 29" and 32", each made from durable nylon that will stand up to the wear and tear of regular everyday use. Need a single full drop cover? No problem. Check out the Ludwig Timpani Vinyl Covers and the Humes & Berg Tuxedo Covers. Both of these covers come in a wide variety of sizes so you can pick and choose the drop cover that suits your specific needs.
When you've dedicated a significant amount of time and money into assembling the perfect set of timpani, it only makes sense to protect your investment. And let's face it, if your timpani are not functioning at their finest, then neither are you. Whether you're a professional percussionist who plays the timpani in a symphony or you're a student musician just starting out, you (and your drums) will benefit from any one of the timpani gig bags and cases in this section.
