Original Build Journal

Though DK Percussion Chain Timpani Kits include the needed threaded crosses to build quadpods, sometimes you may just need to build more for other timpani! DK Percussion is proud to offer stainless steel machined and welded 3/8" threaded crosses so that you can do just that! Need some help building them? That's offered as well - just email Daniel Kirkpatrick.

You'll need to purchase your own wing nuts, and the correct size will be 3/8-16 thread size. Stainless steel or brass is recommended. You'll need four wing nuts and washers for each stand.


$25 each. (You'll have an opportunity to adjust quantity in your shopping cart.)

If you need more than 4 crosses or you need interenational shipping, please contact Daniel Kirkpatrick.
