Bring a new facet to your pan performances. Our Tamboo Bamboo Packages are a great addition to any steelband concert. Take your audiences back in time as you entertain and educate about the history and early musical form that gave birth to the steel drum movement.

African drums were banned in Trinidad in 1884 by British colonial rulers and for half a century carnival processions made music from hollow bamboo tubes, biscuit tins, bottles and scrap iron. In those days, your instrument was also your weapon as rival gangs evolved into rival bands.

Through great determination and creativity the early pioneers of pan persevered to develop Tamboo Bamboo which led to Old Time Pan and eventually the modern day steeldrum that we enjoy.

Tamboo Bamboo is fun, educational and easy to add to any performance. Comes complete with four basses, two cutters, two sets of fullers and a brief history and rhythm sheet. Feel free to use any other percussion instrument like cowbells, bottles, shekeres, brake drums etc...

I just wanted to let you know that I am really enjoying my new pan. The sound is incredible and I have had a few critics tell me that is has an awesome sound. I totally agree!

Many thanks to all the crew at Panyard for crafting me this beautiful instrument. It is one of my most cherished possessions. You guys rock!
