Thousand Oaks, CA—September 2017… Sound Percussion Labs (SPL™), designers of quality drums, percussion, and hardware for today’s hard-working musicians, has unveiled the Baja 10-inch Timbale, designed as a simple addition for any drum set. This machine-precision instrument features a steel shell and delivers the brightness and clarity to cut through any band. Add it to your existing drum kit or percussion setup, and you’re ready for Afro-Cuban styles like mambo, songo, and cha cha cha; reggae, with its staggered-triplet rim shots; and other genres where you want bright, cutting tone.
“A lot of drummers use a high tensioned snare drum or modified small tom because they don’t have a timbale that fits into a drum kit,” offers SPL Product Manager Gerry Helfrich. “But that’s a makeshift substitute. With the Baja 10-inch Timbale, drummers and percussionists can add the real thing to their existing setup and enjoy an authentic tone that really cuts through the mix.”
The Baja 10-inch Timbale’s shell is finished in polished black chrome, with a matching SPL seamless one-piece rim for durability. Its heavy-duty steel side mount enables you to mount the timbale just about anywhere within your drum set. SPL offers the SPH05 or SPH02 adjustable L-rod ball mount, or you can use the mounting arm you already have, as the timbale’s mount is compatible with most popular post sizes (9.5, 10.5, and 12.7 mm), using the included interchangeable threaded eyebolt.
The Baja 10-inch Timbale is available at Guitar Center stores, at www.guitarcenter.com, and at Musician’s Friend.
