Timbales were birthed in Cuba in the late 1930's. We wanted to go back to that original season and hand made our own version as the A&F Drum Co. offering. We added a internal snare and our new exclusive Brass Ring Hoops, but the essence of our Timbales and Timbalitos is that incredible Havana sound of old.
We decide that the first pair we make would go to the city of its origin, so we got on a plane to HAVANA, CUBA with these first ever A&F Drum Co. Old Havana Timbales, and delivered them as a gift to an amazing Cuban cultural center called the Fabrica De Arte Cubano .Huge thank you always to John Aldridge for the beautiful engravings.
Now they are available for all of you, hope we get to make you some soon!
