listen to the sound bite here:

Pantera? I guess you would have to ask a band member for an official ruling.

I say Pan-tare-a, or pant-air-a. Same thing just two different ways to put it.
I've always said Tim-pan-ee, too.

Not only the sound bite that Nodiggie put in will help but phonetic spelling definitely rules out the apparent favorite pan in the middle by phonetically spelling it out tim-puh-nee

Also, most people don't know that timpani is the plural form of timpano, which you pronounce with an emphasis on the second syllable, which is an "ah" sound like cat or bat...

tim-PA-no = one kettle drum
TIM-puh-nee = more than one kettle drum

Pantera, is the Spanish and Castilian word for Panther. It's pronounced Pan-te-ra.
