As a pan soloist or ensemble performer, the Double Second pans are the most versatile of the steel pan orchestra. We make these pans in the whole tone pattern designed by Ellie Mannette. Our Double Seconds have a beautiful mellow and full sound in the lower register for chord playing and maintain crisp high notes for playing melody or soloing.
More then choosing high grade steel, which we do, it is really the crafting techniques that produce the highest quality results when making a pan. We spend extra time in the construction stage shaping each note to where you can visually see the natural oval and circular shapes within the scribed area. Our methods yield incredible sounding Double Seconds, with low notes that are structured to sound full bodied and rich in tone.And, as you go up through the register of the seconds the notes are balanced with each other and sound crisp and clean all the way to the top.
Low F# Seconds and Low F synchronized patterns also available.
