oday, it is estimated that there are more Ludwig Standard Symphonic Series Timpani in use throughout the world than all other models and brands combined. The Ludwig Standard Timpani kettles are mounted directly to the struts of the drum. This differs from the Professional and Grand Symphonic series timpani. Ludwig's patented Balanced Action Pedal allows for tuning of a major sixth per each drum. The Standard Series are built with interior tuning mechanics and are available in smooth copper or fiberglass kettles.

The Grand Symphonic, Professional, and Standard Series Timpani have all been updated with incredible new functionality.
New tuning gauge placement will allow these drums to be configured with American or German set-up. All tuning gauge linkage has been removed from the pedal and seamlessly transfered under the base.
A permanent third omni wheel has been added under the pedal. This wheel allows 360° fluid movement, allowing the player to have total control of drum placement.
Improvements have been made to the rear casters including upgraded braking, larger size wheels with a quick-release function. This allows smooth movement and the ability to quickly remove rear casters with ease.
