Percussion Care and Repair
Yes, There is a Guide to Maintenance of Traditional Dresden Style Timpani
by Marshall LightEvery timpani student who has taken formal instruction has been exposed to some level of instrument care and maintenance. Indeed, many instructors include in their course an overview covering cleaning, lubrication and inspection of the unit during head replacement. But most do not have the time or the training to include an in-depth discourse on complete care for the instrument.The information contained in this guide is intended as a supplement to any previous education on the subject, as well as recommendations for care and maintenance of the machine, rather than the musical instrument. Although the two are closely related, care of the mechanical aspect can be seen in a completely different light when the musical intangibles are not involved.
