KaribPAN Low C Bore Soprano with Nickel Plating + Hard Case, Stand and Mallets (Free Shipping)
Shipping directly from Trinidad & Tobago, our ''Bore'' lead pans represent the authentic culture, craftsmanship and class that this modern instrument is recognized for. High Polish Chrome steelpans produce a warmer and deeper tone than standard chromed and painted steelpans, and also provide a more brilliant finish which is pleasing to the eye.
''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.
