Originating in Cuba, timbales are most commonly used in mambo, reggae and salsa genres of music. These drums are also used in acoustic situations for mainstream music when a full kit is too much for the room. Drummers that want an option to incorporate an option for traditional cuban sounds will add a full timbale set to their rig or have smaller drumset timbales available.
The timbales are typically played standing up with sticks. The two sized heads produce different pitches and can be adjusted through the tuning system.
