Meinl MDT13CH Timbale Drum
John5706, 18.11.2016
Adding a set of timbales to a drum kit can be difficult and result in space compromises that affect adversely how you play. Given that the timbale, in the drum kit set up, is used more for latin fills rather than specific timbale patterns, the Meinl MDT13CH is a useful compromise that allows the expansion of your kit without compromising how you play.
The drum itself is a 13 inch diameter steel shell with 6 tuning points. The tuners themselves are tuned from the bottom using a supplied spanner. Although more awkward to use than a standard tuning key, the spanner allows for the much higher tensioning that timbales require.
The build quality and chroming of this drum is excellent- as you would expect. The holder attachment is robust but simple and does not provide for any angle adjustment. If mounted on a cymbal stand it would be level which would not suit all drummers, including me. Alternative methods of mounting could be on a snare cradle or, my own favoured method, which is on a 10.5mm tom holder mounted on a cymbal stand. I position it between the hi hat and the high tom (where a crash cymbal would normally sit) and it`s perfectly placed for those rapid fire latin fills!......
Soundwise this drum really delivers - sharp, cutting but not abrasive sounds make latin fills sound really authentic and the rim height makes rim-shots easy to play. I like this drum a lot....it`s not the first drum of this type that I`ve owned but it`s the first one that doesn`t sound like a cheap snare drum with the bottom head taken off. Incidentally, if you knock the snare off your snare drum you can use that as a low timbale.....that`s when the fun really starts!... Meinl, of course, are a well respected maker of percussion instruments and this timbale won`t disappoint.....I definitely recommend it...great value for money as well!...

Caliente, caliente!
Nicolas P., 23.05.2011
In spite of its name of "Timbal for drummers", this instrument has in my opinion a characteristic and authentic sound of Latin timpani.

-A compact instrument-
Its strength for drummers (and for percussionists) is the small size, and a very affordable price (you must however choose the support that suits you, because the drum is delivered alone).
For my part I bought it to place it in duet with a mini drum Meinl of 10 inches above my congas. I have a drum-percussion set and was looking for maximum space gain, which is easy to see the shallow depth of the instrument.

-The sound-
Reasonable volume is also an asset, as traditional timpani of 14 and 15 "by 6" depth tend to cover a battery and especially congas. The sound however remains powerful and slamming.

- Shipped only
The only criticism that I could issue would be the absence of a "pack", that is to say that the product is sold with another timbale, of different size. In my case I bought the 8-inch and 10-inch mini-timbales, to use only the 10-inch mini-timbales with this product and the absence of a foot, which requires buying a support.

-Conclusion-
In short, this instrument represents the right compromise for a musician who wants to adopt the typical sound of the timpani, without obtaining so-called "standard" instruments, which are more voluminous and noisy.

-To summarize-
Plus: Authentic sound, compact instrument
The minus: no accessories or additional drums.
