Meinl MHT13BK Timbale, Meinl Artist Series Taku Hirano Hand-Bale, Size: 13", Material: Steel, Colour: Black, Features: Strong mounting clamp, Logo applied from underneath the head (US patent), Special designed rim, incl. L-shaped tuning key, Tune Up Oil, Taku Hirano wanted to add timbale accents and fills while playing on congas and multipercussion set-ups, without needing sticks. His signature Hand-Bale now makes that possible! The retaining rim of the Hand-Bale is uniquely made with one half traditionally shaped, while the other half of the rim is recessed below the shell. This opens the timbale to bongo style hand techniques that easily produce an unmistakably crisp timbale sound. Stick techniques are possible on the traditionally rimmed portion of the drum.
