The slogan “Sound of Quality” perfectly reflects where Adams stands for. Brand values which can be found back in the complete organisation. Adams continuously applies developments which lead to improvements in sound, but also in durability. It may be clear that Adams, with all those developments, had big influence on the evolution of the timpani. With the introduction of the Professional GenII, Adams once again sets the standard in technique, sound and durability.
New patented Balanced Action Pedal Mechanism Professional GenII timpani now feature the all–new patented Balanced Action Pedal Mechanism as used on the Revolution Series with adjustable spring tension. With this mechanism, the pedal action is smooth and offers the player an extended tuning range with a familiar balanced feel and adjustability via a tension knob.
New suspension ring: better sound
The Professional GenII Bowl is suspended from a single flange chrome plated steel ring supported by strong struts for maximum sustain and projection.
New wheels: glide with fingertip effort
New large commercial grade double-locking, double-wheel swivel casters and stylish base legs with a wider stance, offer the drum more stable support while being played, and safer manoeuvrability. The Professional GenII drums also feature an integrated locking 3rd wheel assembly on the player’s side with two permanently affixed wheels and brake allowing for nearly effortless instrument moving.
Possibility to use calf heads
The new Adams pedal system used on the Professional GenII, is the only Balanced Action Pedal Mechanism in the world that allows you to play with calf heads.
