Handcrafted on the island of Trinidad, this steel drum is a smaller version of the famous pan steel drums that are played there. It can still play an octave of notes (9 actually) though. How? Nine depresions are verrrry carefully pounded in the steel drumhead until they achieve exactly the width and depth that will create certain notes of the musical scale.
Each is clearly marked with a letter that matches the music in the included songbook.

Comments about Product: My son likes this steel drum very much. It is a little smaller than I expected and you have to hit it in just the right spot to get a good note. Still it has a pretty good sound for a toy. The wood base did break on ours, but I glued it back together and it is fine. My son is not gentle.
Comments about Product: The music book made playing real songs easy, but we lost the book, before I had a chance to scan it. The construction was quality, I really don't have anything bad to say about this product
