to this drum making Calypso Music
Children and adults will love to make
their own great calypso music! These high quality calypso drums
are made by professional pan makers on the
island of Trinidad. This is a smaller version (authentic 1/3 size) of the pan steel drums that are so famous
in Trinidad and Tobago. The steel drums originated around the
1930's and were made from used 55-gallon oil drums; the steel drums are
now famous for their distinctive, festive music evoking island Carnival
The all-steel drum is
hand-hammered to create the basin contours of the drum with raised areas
that form the notes. The drum is mounted to the wood drum stand,
allowing the richness of the notes to reverberate. This diatonic
drum is strobe-tuned to C-major, and includes a songbook with songs
including "When the Saints Go Marching In" and "Oh! Susannah".
Great musical fun for kids (and adults won't be able to resist trying
their musical hand as well!)
authentic Calypso all-steel drum includes the drum stand, 2
rubber-tipped mallets and songbook, and comes packaged in a gift box.
