Introduction


Timbales are generally played positioning the large timbal to the left and the small one to the right (reversed for left handed).

Keep them at your waist level; you have to feel comfortable when playing.

Use wooden sticks; size are variable
(5/16" - 3/8" (raccomended) - 7/16" - 1/2").

When adding cowbell, woodblock, cymbal and a bass drum you can positon them as follows:

SMALL BELL
mouth points to the left;

LARGE BELL
mouth points to the right;

WOODBLOCK
it depends on size but often it is placed facing the player;

CYMBAL
to the right of the timbales (like a drum-set);

BASS DRUM
to the right of the timbales (like a drum-set).
