comment Do timpani have access to all notes in their playing range?
Not unless the score asks for a portamento, or change in pitch. You can set the pedal at a certain pitch, where it stays, then strike the drumhead while cranking the pedal up or down to create a pitch-bend effect. It isn't used much, but it is an available technique.

comment Does the electric guitar necessarily have a narrower dynamic range compared to an acoustic guitar?
Slim, you've made very good points. Picking softly produces a certain timbre, picking hard produces a different one. When you use electronic compression, it "squashes" the overall volume and changes the attack and sustain characteristics and changes the timbre, but you still have some control over shaping the timbre. We have the thankless task here of explaining electric guitar compression to classical guitarists who have never really experimented with an electric guitar and a compression pedal. There is only so much we can explain in words.

comment Why do musicians prefer to play in certain keys?
No, it's not more accurate. "Compass" is the English word for "tessitura" which is the correct technical term, in Italian. I added a link to the article on "tessitura" in Wikipedia in the body of my answer above.
