Tim Genis has been a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra since 1993, when he won
the appointment as Principal Percussionist - a position which he held until winning the timpani
position, a role made vacant with the retirement of Vic Firth after a 50 year tenure. This
versatile line of timpani mallets is tonal in character and designed to create different colours
and qualities of articulation. Persimmon shafts provide a darker sound. The balance and weight
of each model make articulation effortless.
