Double second (F) Pans, mallets & double stand

A pair of double second (or double alto) chrome plated 23" steel pans supplied with 2 rubber tipped mallets, solid adjustable and collapsible chrome stand on wheels, and stand bag.

Each surface features a 15-note whole tone scale, and the pans are tuned a semi-tone apart, giving a combined chromatic range of F3-Bb5. Panyard's mastery of the physics and geometry of steel pans means these instruments have the optimum layout and timbral consistency.



Steel pans are relatively young instruments that have become phenomenally popular in recent years, particularly with school music departments and events organisers. They originated in Trinidad and Tobago in the 1930s and are traditionally recycled from 55 gallon chemical containers.

Often incorrectly referred to as steel drums, the whole instruments vibrate to make their characteristic Caribbean sound which means they are properly classified as 'idiophones', the same family as cymbals.

Panyard have been manufacturing exceptional instruments since 1990 and the mid-range Percussion Plus Import Series contains the best quality affordable pans in the world.

Constructed in Trinidad from specially made steel, they are then shipped to Ohio in the USA where each pan is precisely tuned and finished by experienced specialists.
