    Timpani tuning ranges

    TIMPANI TUNING RANGE
    The normal range of a timpano is a perfect 5th. Most drums with a good head will easily play from a half step below their normal range to a step above it.

    32" range D - A
    30" range E - B
    29" range F - C
    28" range F - C
    26" range Bb - F
    25" range Bb - F
    23" range Eb - Bb
    20" range F - C
