Anyone else have one/several of these and play them regularly?

 

I love how easy it is to place. And for the right music, it sure is fun.

That's one of the originals made from maple. Those kicked ass. The new ones are steel and sound way more harsh to my ears.

I use one occasionally for timballe sounds for reggae and santana tunes my band plays. You are correct about their ease of placement and  they do what they are intended for really well for their size. Mine is as mentioned above one of the polished stainless steel models.

I have the steel PDP version - it's a pretty cool "mini timbale" for my percussion setup.  Never seen a wood one like yours, though......

Yup. I think I got this in an ebay auction right about when the wood ones were discontinued. Probably about 2001.

 

There's something seriously fun about the pitch bend that occurs in its response.

I have 2 of the DW steel versions, 10” & 12”. However, I have never played them, still in the boxes, so not sure how they sound.

I like to use the DW 8-12 piccolo toms with a Pearl flat timbale (3.5x13) as a mini-quad set-up. When doing this, I mic them from the bottom, otherwise, they won't cut through all the amplification.

On other occasions, I use just the DW 10 & 12 with the Pearl 13. With 2-ply heads they can sound pretty beefy when mic'ed.

On lite gigs, I like to use a DW 10 piccolo tom with the 13 Pearl flat timbale - it gives me a nice tonal spread and the 10 nests inside the 13, allowing me to carry both drums in a piccolo snare bag.

I have gone even smaller and just used the 12.
