Great beginner drum

By Rachel White

from Grand Rapids, MI

For someone with limited space and limited finances, this is a great drum to start with. It's got a great sound and is small, lightweight and portable. The highest notes don't sound as good as they probably could, and you do have to hit them harder to get the note out. Apparently that's normal for steel drums, though - the higher the note, the more pressure needed. The higher notes kind of echo through the rest of the drum, so while the note does come out, it's not as clear as the rest of the notes. Overall, it's a great drum, sounds really nice, and is fun to play! I'd definitely recommend it for those looking for a nice beginner or just-for-fun steel drum, as the full sized ones are pretty expensive. To adjust the height of the stand, just buy longer pieces of PVC pipe and cut to size.

Fancy Pans mini Diatonic Steel Drum

By Lisa

from Greensboro, NC

This was a gift for my 14 year old son who already plays the drums. He loves it and we love to hear it. Everytime he plays it, it sounds like we are in Jamaica or the Carribean somewhere. Very good sound and he liked that it was marked w/notes. I researched for a while on buying a steel drum and this was by far the better purchase for the money. The stand is made from pvc and is only table top height. My husband very easily added longer piping and now he can use at his regular drum set.
