Welcome to the birth of a new era in steel drums. Presenting a "proof of concept" electronic steel drum. Image having the sound and form factor of an acoustical steel drum, without the use of 55-gallon oil drums.
Imagine drums that do not go out of tune and do not rust. Imagine an instrument that takes advantage of all of the electronic enhancements available today. Imagine no longer, the future is now!
The advancements in electronics have changed the way that the world is making and playing musical instruments. Look at all of the instruments that are all available in electronic versions today, such as drum sets, congas, percussion pads, marimba, etc. It was just a matter of time before someone applied the same principles to the steel drum.
We are a group of forward thinking individuals who have dedicated the major portions of our lives towards the Steel Drum art form.
We are professional musicians and electronic drum makers looking to bring something exciting and different to the Steel Drum and world music community.
Just as the electric guitar has found a place along side the acoustical guitar, we wish to do the same thing for the steel drums.
Our mission is to bring to the world, a revolutionary advancement to steel drums for the benefit of the players and public that loves this instrument.
We do this with respect and recognition to the tremendous gift to the world that island of Trinidad has bestowed.
This site is currently not selling the product as yet as we are still in the early stages of perfecting this instrument.
We have created a fully functional double tenor that is played exactly the way you would play an acoustical steel drum. The notes sound fantastic and they always stay in tune!
Thank you all for your interest in this latest advance. There are so many questions being asked and we genuinely appeciate the interest. In the weeks that follow, the instrument and all of the capabilities it will/will not have will be listed on the products page. We are committed to bringing to the world, a new kind of steel drum, and we want to bring you the best! So, please be patient for a little while, until we find ourselvers ready to deliver our best. Thanks
