As a custom builder we offer more choices than any other manufacturer because we have greater flexibility. We do all of the machine and bowl work in our own shop. This gives us complete control.

Each pedal instrument is available with a choice of one of the following profiles:

1.  The original Semi-Flat Bottom Bowl 
This bowl is our most popular because of its rich sound characteristics throughout the range. The sound is slightly dark, with excellent resonance, particularly when playing loud. Results with calf heads are both warm and open.

2.  Flat Bottom Bowl
This bowl was modeled after the old European kettle shape where the hip is wide and the bottom made flat. The projection and clarity are good throughout the range, and the sound is quite dark. The sound decay is rather quick.

3.  Parabolic Bowl
Our version of the Parabolic Bowl produces a very bright sound because of this bowl's extremely round bottom. The projection is good and the decay is fairly rapid.

There is only one bowl shape available for the Continental Chain Tuned Tympani. That shape compliments the Semi-Flat Bottom Bowl.

There are two different weights of copper used in the
    manufacture of our bowls. The lighter weight material is
      identified as 24 oz. copper. This material is used for the
        standard bowls in our
Mark XI and Metropolitan Model.
           The heavier material is identified as 32 oz. copper
             and is standard material for the
Continental Chain Tuned
               and
Mark XIV bowl, and optional for Mark XI. The heavier
                 copper bowls produce a sound with more body than the
                   lighter material.

All bowls have a hammered finish and are
 polished and laquered.
