No, the use of "orchestral"/"classical" instruments in their music began with the Please Please Me with George Martin's overdubs of a piano on Misery (it may be easy to dismiss the piano, as it featured in so many forms of music, but it first made its impact in classical music), and - less arguable - the overdub of a celesta aka a celeste (a struck idiophone operated by a keyboard) onto Baby It's You.

Also they used classical guitar in "'Til There Was You" and "And I Love Her".

Paul used the same kind of one-beat staccato drum in "Hey Diddle", from the "Ram" sessions, which I was listening to on the weekend. I don't think it was a tympani though, probably just a bass drum.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Ok, I'll give you the celeste, I'd forgotten that one, but piano (and acoustic guitar) were pretty much in the 'pop' domain, and you would have been hard pushed to find a timpani in the repertoire of acts of the day. Cue a massive list....... 😉
