Steel Pan facts with Steelasophical Steel Pan facts with Steelasophical Steel Pan facts with Steelasophical Did you know that the steel drum was born out of poverty and a local ban on drums? The steel drum originated in the late 1930s on the island of Trinidad and was played as part of a steel band, a percussion ensemble contrived by lower-class rebellious teens. Learn more about the steeldrum’s complex history, development, and current form with our ten fun facts below: The steel drum is a tuned idiophone traditionally made from an oil drum, but today is made of high-quality steel. To make a steel drum, or a pan, the bottom of an oil drum is first pounded into a bowl, then shaped and tuned with hammers to form distinct resonating surfaces. Steel bands are stylistically versatile, but the most common steel band conventions of melodic phrasing and rhythmic structure are related to Calypso music. While the first steel bands included instruments such as soap boxes, biscuit tins, and dustbins, modern steel bands include vibraphones, cow bells, congas, bongos, triangles and other percussion instruments. Drums are made in families: bass pans, rhythm pans, and tenor pans. The steel band developed directly out of bamboo stamping tube ensembles, which provided carnival music for the lower-class in Port of Spain after a British colonial law restricted the use of drums with skin heads. “Band wars” between rival steel bands emerged in Trinidad, complete with street fighting. Membership in a band soon became interpreted as hooliganism signalling creole disdain for European norms. Manufacturing steel drums is a highly specialized skill. Pans are not standardized, as competition between rival bands fostered innovation in tuning and design. Winston ‘Spree’ Simon of the John John steel band is credited with making the first pan. In 1946, his band performed Ave Maria and God Save the King for an audience that included the British Governor. As of 1992, the steelpan is Trinidad and Tobago’s national instrument. However, the notion dates from the 1940s when the steel band’s musical transformation was driven by competition between bands as well as by the efforts of progressive middle-class individuals to promote what they viewed as an indigenous art form unjustly maligned by colonial cultural standards. Popularity of the steel band has grown. They are now plentiful in Caribbean diaspora communities as well as non-Caribbean communities all over the world. While Trinidad and Tobago continues to be the centre, countries like Sweden, Switzerland, and Japan are now hubs of steel band activity. Steel Pan facts with Steelasophical Musicians who play the steel pan are referred to as a Panist. The early metal pan musicians used a variety of tools to create the sound of metal music - including kitchen utensils and metal containers. When making a steel pan the bottom of the oil drum is pounded into the shape of a bowl. Further shaping and tuning is done with hammers that create surfaces that resonate to make distinct sounds. Originally steel pan instruments [...]
DB Technologies ES503 Steelasophical Steelband DJ DB Technologies ES503 Steelasophical Steelband DJ Home Email Steelasophical Versatile and Powerful The es 503 PA system can be configured in three different modes by simply adjusting the settings via the OLED display and rotary control knob. Mono Mode: The two satellite speakers are connected top-on-top - thanks to the quick and easy slide connection system - and are then mounted on the subwoofer via a 25mm pole. Stereo Mode: Each satellite speaker is placed individually on a tripod stand (sold separately), further expanding the field of coverage. Alternatively, 2b Stereo Mode can be used to place one satellite speaker on a pole and the other speaker on a tripod stand. Double Column Mode: An es 503 system in mono mode becomes the master for a second es 503 system (sold separately) via the integrated balanced output channel. By doing so, both systems are driven by the master's on-board mixer and any adjustments can be made exclusively via the masters OLED display. Innovative Design The internal design of the full-range speakers delivers an asymmetrical vertical coverage - thanks to the Logarithmic Curved Column Array technology - and a unique ''double ringed'' phase plug widens the horizontal coverage, while guaranteeing perfect voice intelligibility. Additionally, this design allows the dB Technologies es 503 to be adapted for any situation, including for either a seated or standing audience.
