KaribPAN is Now Offering 'Low C' Bore Lead Pans w/ High Polish Chrome and FREE Fedex Intl. Economy Shipping

Shipping FREE directly from Trinidad & Tobago via FEDEX INTL. ECONOMY, our ''Bore'' lead pans feature a high polish chrome finish and represent the authentic culture, craftsmanship and class that this modern instrument is recognized for. 
''Bore'' pan technology provides a tonal ring with more sustain, as opposed to pans which do not have bores in the grooves and possess a shorter ring. ''Bore'' pans also provide the player with an increased volume level and brighter sound, as well as more resonation than non-bore pans.
All of our instruments are 100% handcrafted from the start of the pan making process until the finish, from sinking to tuning. 
 
All of the drums used to make our pans are sourced locally from 18 gauge T&T drums without letters, which are specifically produced for pan production. 
 
Shipped freshly chromed, tuned ready to be played. 
 
This instrument is tuned in ''Low C'', and has a range of C4-E6. 
 
Despite being called a ''tenor'' pan, its musical range is in soprano, and it is typically used to play the lead in a steel pan orchestra. 
 
The notes are arranged a circle of 4ths and 5ths, which is the most user-friendly note pattern to date, which is also precisely the reason why this note pattern is also the most standardized note pattern of the instrument to date. 
 
Boasting 2.5 octaves, this is an instrument capable of playing in all scales and is compatible with most every typical classical and non-classical instrument. 
 
Whether you are a beginner or a professional, when you play our pans, you can be proud knowing that your instrument was produced entirely in T&T, the home of steel pan. 
 
We also have additional members of the pan family available for sale, as well as various other pan accessories.

    Dear Ed Peters,
    In your haste to make us look like Steelpan buffoons, you neglected to consult your dictionary. If you had done this, you would not be oozing the jackass vibration that you are now.

    First of all, “resonation” is a noun of the word resonate.
    From dictionary.com:
    The Word of the Year is…
    “resonate”
    [rez-uh-neyt]
    verb (used without object), resonated, resonating.
    1.
    to resound.
    2.
    to act as a resonator; exhibit resonance.

    verb (used without object), resonated, resonating.
    3.
    Electronics. to reinforce oscillations because the natural frequency of the device is the same as the frequency of the source.
    4.
    to amplify vocal sound by the sympathetic vibration of air in certain cavities and bony structures.

    verb (used with object), resonated, resonating.

    Ed, if you do not know what a “tonal ring” is, I dare say you do not understand the meaning of “self explanatory” either. But let me help you out:
    From Merriam Webster’s Dictionary-

    Definition of tonal
    1
    : of or relating to tone, tonality, or tonicity
    2
    : having tonality

    Ed, what does any of this have to do with “bore pans being popular with the majority of bands and individual players internationally”? This is your opinion, Ed, and I can show you numerous videos of big bands like Renegades and more who have many bore pans in their bands. With smallbands, the use of bore pans gives the band more volume than would be acheived with the same amount of non-bore pans.

    You sound like a hater, Ed. As long as you check your facts, you can hate all you want. But if you make another comment based on ignorance and hate where you throw a bunch of dumb, self explanatory questions at me, expecting me to do your homework and spoon feed you knowledge, ill just delete it rather than go through the trouble, Ed.

    Happy Holidays.

    Please explain “tonal ring with more sustain”? What is a “tonal ring” Bore pan with" increased volume level" did you use an appropriate instrument to compare the sound power of both instruments?How do you define "resonation? do you mean resonance?.. Why is the bore pan not popular with the majority of bands, and individual players internationally?
