Buying kettledrums for the orchestra

  • Kettledrums are one of the most important instruments in a symphony orchestra, because a big part of classical orchestra repertoire is based on them.
  • Due to the fact that kettledrums are big and very expensive, most players cannot buy their own instrument, unlike the orchestra members who play a smaller instrument.
  • Another issue with buying kettledrums is that one instrument is not enough, because unlike a piano, which can be used to play tens of notes simultaneously, only one note at a time can be played on a kettledrum.

The Tallinn University Symphony Orchestra is a young, capable and developing group that needs a steady base – kettledrums – to reach their full sound potential.
