the copper shells of these timpani have some dents in them, from many years of being moved and tossed about. here i am sitting on the floor and striking the dents with the mallet... sounds a lot like a steel pan (steel drum) except not tuned, and with a nice reverb from the drum head. reminiscent of some gamelan instruments, or even a sonar ping.

this is on the larger of the two timpani (71 cm). unprocessed except for a little noise reduction. mic position is over the drum head.

    Fantastic - almost exactly the sound in Radiohead's Packed Like Sardines song.
