A Timpani Good Time

I haven't seen a timpani in years! Last I saw one, I was in concert band in high school. Okay, that's not quite true. There was that time I saw the Boston Pops in the park. Either way, I loved the booming sound a timpani does whether outside or indoors. I remember truly debating on joining the percussion section because I adored the mallets and how one looks like they are pounding the poor instrument!
