Did you know?
Steel pans are relatively young instruments that have become phenomenally popular in recent years, particularly with school music departments and events organisers. They originated in Trinidad and Tobago in the 1930s and are traditionally recycled from 55 gallon chemical containers.
Both steel pans and steel drums refer to the same thing. Steel pan players will often use rolls, which are rapid fire playing of the same note many times to create a more continuous sound. This allows for stimulated playing of longer notes that maintain their strength rather than decaying such as a single hit would produce.
