    Timpani are extremely expensive. even for low class drums. My parents offered to buy me a set of 2 until they saw the price.

      Yes, heads for timpani are expensive. But, it works out for the amount of time a head is actually on the timpani (1-2 years should be the norm; most schools though??? They won't change the heads unless they're broken or welted, and even if they're welted, if they still sound ok they'll keep them on !!!!)

      Finally, if you have trouble with loading a 22 or 24 bass drum, GOOD LUCK with loading a 26 and/or 29 timpani!!!! The cases only cover the top, and though they go over the drum a little bit, there are no full cover cases for timpani...

      ...watch me eat my words...

      Anyway, even though timpani have casters, they are not meant to move around a lot, i.e. touring. It's not to say you can't do it, as many touring orchestras do (there are touring orchestras, right??), but timpani are best not moved around too much.

      So, after all that, and the cargo van that you will have to buy to cart them in, you can have timpani!!!
      Sorry drummaman, start eating. www.classiccases.net made our timpani cases. They are completely enclosed and shock mounted. They were expensive as crap but well worth it. They also made a custom mixer box I designed that holds effects, wireless mics, amps, accessories and everything else. They're also working on a road case to hold our concert band backline. Another one I personally designed.

        get better cymbals first. please
        Oh heck yeah. MalletKat and Timpini would be some of my last purchases.

        I'm starting to up grade my cymbals now. Saving for the Black Friday sale in hopes to pick up an AA RBDR, and hopefully a crash or too. (I can't get the hi-hats I want at my GC. Going for a pair of Saludas).
        I love when my cymbals talk dirty to me.

                  I believe he used 2 timpani in his set up. Usually a 29" and a 32" Ludwig.
