Pi Steel Pan Drums (similar to a Hang drum) are made right here in Australia by a very talented and established local musician, who has over 20 years in the industry. Pi's experience and rich knowledge of music has culminated in creating a world class instrument. Every Pi Steel Pan is unique and features warm tones and beautiful harmonics.They are meticulously tuned with each tone field containing 3 notes - the tonic, the octave and the colour. The colour can be the 3rd or the 5th, but mostly below the octave the colour note is the fifth and above the octave the colour note is the third. Made to the highest standards using quality Australian steel that has been treated with nitride at 510 degrees celsius to protect against rust and then dry oil finished, giving them each a unique stain.Pi Steel Drums include a Stainless Steel top cover to protect the instrument and a backpack that connects to the lid for easy travelling. In addition the lid can be placed on a carpet or cushion and works perfectly well as a calabash. The sound hole on the underside of the Steel Pan can be played to replicate an Udu claypot. 3 instruments in 1.
