20 Feb Buying a Steel Drum Online
The steel drum, also known traditionally as the steel drum, is our passion here at Panyard. But we know that purchasing a steel drum online can be a little overwhelming.
Panyard’s steel drums are available on our website, as well as on Amazon and through independent music outlets.
Where to buy full size pans
Our full size steel drums, traditionally known as steelpan, are handcrafted at our facility in Akron, Ohio.
There are four basic steelpan percussion instruments.
- Lead pan C: Our lead pan is a single drum, and is regularly used by soloists.
- Double second: The double second uses two drums, which carry the notes on a whole-tone scale.
- Cello steel drum: The cello steelpan features three drums!
- Bass: Bass steel drums or bass steelpan features six entire steel drums.
Many music stores carry our Jumbie Jams, and some carry a wide range of steel drums. In many cases, stores don’t have steel drums in stock, and you’ll have to preorder them. That is currently the case at Panyard as well, but our Jumbie Jams are available.
