The modern timpani is a type of low-pitched percussion instrument that typically includes four to five drums in the set, each with the ability to be tuned to different pitches. The timpani requires a pair of mallets to be struck on the head of the drum to produce a sound. The term timpani translates to drums in Italian. Although the term itself is a description of the instrument type, the timpani definition specifically refers to the large orchestral kettledrums that come in sets of various sizes and is not a blanket term for the timpani instrument family.
The timpani has a uniquely resonant low-pitched sound. It is typically used to express excitement and signal climatic moments in the music. Often paired with brass and other powerful instruments, the timpani adds depth and energy to the orchestral sound.
