About the Steelpan
The steelpan (or steel drums or pans) is a musical instrument originating from Trinidad and Tobago. The pan is traditionally beaten out of old shipping drums. Modern steelpans are made new from pressed steel. The notes are hammered into the surface and tuned to pitch. This process is similar to how handpans are made.
Our steelpans are hung from simple hooks on an adjustable aluminium stand for easy setup and play. They come with rubber-tipped mallets and a canvas carry bag.
