Sound Percussion Labs (SPL) has announced the Baja BTB1413L, a timbale set that delivers a wealth of playing options.
The set includes 13-inch and 14-inch steel shells, finished in a robust black chrome finish and accented with rugged brass lug inserts that are tunable with a standard drum key. The set also features a black, 5.75-inch, low-sustain cowbell with adjustable rod.
These new timbales deliver the brightness and clarity to cut through any band and feature an exclusive ribbed shell that provides a variety of playing styles, including cascara, and a guiro effect.
The sturdy, height-adjustable, double-braced chrome stand includes a convenient tilter that enables you to angle the entire timbale set. You can adjust the timbales’ angle for traditional stand-alone positioning, or easily fit the set into your current drum or percussion setup. The exclusive “stabilizer bars” connect the shells and minimize movement during performance and positioning.
“Our new Baja 13-inch and 14-inch timbales cut through a mix with a clean and sharp tone,” notes SPL Product Manager Gerry Helfrich. “They’re great for Latin, reggae, world, and today’s contemporary music styles. The exclusive stabilizer bars really add strength and support. But what’s most unique about these timbales is the rhythm variety you can achieve from the ribbed shells, and their authentic, pure, bright, clear tone.”
