Hessische Barockpauken (Hessian Baroque Timpani)
Hessische Barockpauken™ (Hessian Baroque Timpani) are carefully measured copies of actual Baroque drums dating from approximately 1700 - from the Hessian Statethat includes Darmstadt, Germany. These instruments are historically appropriate for the music of Bach, Handel and other composers of the Baroque era. When you look at a violin, you don’t know if it’s a great sounding Stradavarius until you hear it played! Such was the case with a pair of Baroque timpani I got to see, play on and hear a few years ago. HESSISCHE BAROCKPAUKEN™ are replicas of those great sounding drums. They match the originals in measurement and shape with the same kind of hardware and materials used by Baroque craftsman.

The drums come appropriately fitted with goatskin heads.

Easy Set Up Stands
