High Tenor

The high tenor (also known as a soprano pan) is the highest pitched of the steel drums (steel pans) with a pitch range of D4 to F#6, that is, up to two octaves and a major third from D above middle C (C4). Its predecessor actually contained fewer notes which were within the tenor range. However, the name “Tenor” was kept despite the higher range of its descendant, the soprano pan. The notes of this pan is arranged in the cycle of 4ths, going clockwise.


The high tenor pan is a lead instrument and normally carries the melody. However, these steel drums can easily play a harmonic role depending on the desire of the music arranger.The high tenor is commonly used by pan soloists.

Low Tenor

The Low Tenor, which has a pitch range from C4 to E6 has notes that are arranged in the same order as the high tenor. The function of this steel pan is the same as that of the high tenor and it is also used by pan soloists.

Wedding Planners Near Me

January 29th, 2020|Comments Off on Wedding Planners Near Me

Wedding Planners Near Me Dear Wedding Planners Near Me, We all know that couples are quite meticulous about every single element in regards to the items that are going to mark their big day and make their wedding the one to be remembered by the grandiose, beautiful experiences the guests received or an average, not – so – good impressions which leave people feeling they can’t wait for it to be over. Brides and grooms make the selection of the most appropriate flower arrangements, perfect menus and the amazing music program a task that presents a form of a full time job – one absolutely worthy of their attention. Yet, when it comes to choosing the most perfect musical entertainment, most consider the process not even worth a toast and decide to simply choose the most inexpensive one or make an uninformed decision without putting too much effort into it. The old belief that the music itself presents the very life of the party may not be 100% true - but there’s no doubt at all that music has the power to turn even the most average and low energy party into the grandiose celebration worth of a king’s court simply can’t be disputed. Experience has shown us that for that reason, and many more, the careful selection of the finest music entertainment which will be presented to the Wedding’s guest can make the difference between having Guests exhilarated by the Wedding Celebration or the guests who would rather “not talk” about their experience at the Wedding Party. Make sure you absolutely blow your guest’s and make sure they have the times of their lives by providing them with the highest quality music entertainment they’ve ever experienced. Energetic, innovative, creative and new – Carribean Steel Band Musical Entertainment Service for Weddings will make sure to bring the Carribean to you while ensuring your guest’s have the time of their life at [...]

Linus Morgan Wedding Photography Lucy & Paul  Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy Wedding Linus Morgan Wedding Photography Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy Weddings had a Caribbean influence injected into them with Lucy and Paul’s beach party themed wedding. A lovely concept and theme for a wedding held at the home of the National Sailing Team and one that was carried off so well! Asa touching tribute to her late grand mother, Lucy decided to hold her wedding on the same date as that of her Grand Parents, in the same local church – St Mary’s in Chickerell, Weymouth. A lovely gesture & made even more special by her grandfather reciting a reading during the service. Although the day had started a little over cast, come the time to leave for the church service the heavens well and truly opened with an almost tropical downpour. Thankfully short lived, with the day clearing back to reveal the summer sun once more.   The beach party  wedding reception sprung into life to the sounds of Gary Trotman of Steelasophical Steel Band playing Bob Marley tunes, whilst over-looking the beautiful Dorset coastline. With the guests wearing flower garlands, treated to a BBQ meal and a live band in the evening, the day went off with a bang.   Congratulations once again Lucy & Paul Team behind the Images Linus Moran Photography Linus Morgan Wedding Photographs Linus Morgan Wedding Photography [...]

Steel Pan Double Tenor Double Seconds

Steelband Magazine

Double Tenor

The Double Tenor, which was invented by Bertie Marshall, uses 2 drums and has a pitch range from F3 to B5 or up to two octaves and an augmented 4th from F below middle C. These steel pans have a distinctively pleasant sound, which makes them very appealing to pan soloists. The double tenor can be used to carry the melody, a harmonic voice, for counter melodies or for chords.In the latest standardised version of the double tenor steel drums,the Eb note is on the left hand pan and the F# is on the right hand pan. In an earlier version of this pan, the Eb is on the right hand pan and there was no F#3. So you went from F3 to F#4 to G3 and up, which broke the continuity of the range. There is even a double tenor which has the lowest F# (F#3) on the left and the other F#’s on the right, with the Eb also on the right. So, if you decide to play this pan you must be mindful of its variations. The arrangement of the notes on the double tenor is not symmetrical, which makes it one of the more difficult instruments to master.

The Double Second Pan

This steel pan was invented by Sonny Roach and uses two drums, each of which carries the notes of a whole-tone scale, making it a very symmetrical steel pan. Its notes range from F# below middle C (F#3) up to C#6, which is two octaves above middle C. Because of the symmetry of this pan, the successive notes of the Chromatic Scale alternate between the left and right hand pans. For example, F# is on the left, G is on the right, G# is on the left, and so on…

Wedding Planners Near Me Dear Wedding Planners Near Me, We all know that couples are quite meticulous about every single element in regards to the items that are going to mark their big day and make their wedding the one to be remembered by the grandiose, beautiful experiences the guests received or an average, not – so – good impressions which leave people feeling they can’t wait for it to be over. Brides and grooms make the selection of the most appropriate flower arrangements, perfect menus and the amazing music program a task that presents a form of a full time job – one absolutely worthy of their attention. Yet, when it comes to choosing the most perfect musical entertainment, most consider the process not even worth a toast and decide to simply choose the most inexpensive one or make an uninformed decision without putting too much effort into it. The old belief that the music itself presents the very life of the party may not be 100% true - but there’s no doubt at all that music has the power to turn even the most average and low energy party into the grandiose celebration worth of a king’s court simply can’t be disputed. Experience has shown us that for that reason, and many more, the careful selection of the finest music entertainment which will be presented to the Wedding’s guest can make the difference between having Guests exhilarated by the Wedding Celebration or the guests who would rather “not talk” about their experience at the Wedding Party. Make sure you absolutely blow your guest’s and make sure they have the times of their lives by providing them with the highest quality music entertainment they’ve ever experienced. Energetic, innovative, creative and new – Carribean Steel Band Musical Entertainment Service for Weddings will make sure to bring the Carribean to you while ensuring your guest’s have the time of their life at [...]

Linus Morgan Wedding Photography Lucy & Paul  Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy Wedding Linus Morgan Wedding Photography Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy Weddings had a Caribbean influence injected into them with Lucy and Paul’s beach party themed wedding. A lovely concept and theme for a wedding held at the home of the National Sailing Team and one that was carried off so well! Asa touching tribute to her late grand mother, Lucy decided to hold her wedding on the same date as that of her Grand Parents, in the same local church – St Mary’s in Chickerell, Weymouth. A lovely gesture & made even more special by her grandfather reciting a reading during the service. Although the day had started a little over cast, come the time to leave for the church service the heavens well and truly opened with an almost tropical downpour. Thankfully short lived, with the day clearing back to reveal the summer sun once more.   The beach party  wedding reception sprung into life to the sounds of Gary Trotman of Steelasophical Steel Band playing Bob Marley tunes, whilst over-looking the beautiful Dorset coastline. With the guests wearing flower garlands, treated to a BBQ meal and a live band in the evening, the day went off with a bang.   Congratulations once again Lucy & Paul Team behind the Images Linus Moran Photography Linus Morgan Wedding Photographs Linus Morgan Wedding Photography [...]

Steel Pan cello

Steelband Magazine

The Cello Pan

The Cello Pan uses 3 pans, each of which contains the four notes of a diminished seventh chord. One pan therefore contains the notes C, Eb, Gb and A; another pan contains C#, E, G and Bb; the third pan contains B, D, F and Ab. The range of this pan goes from C3, one octave below middle C to B4 above middle C.

The longer skirt and the minor-third relationship between the neighbouring notes of each pan gives the cello pans a deep mysterious tonal quality. These steel drums perfect for counter melodies and low harmony. The symmetry of these steel drums allows the chromatic scale to be played in a clockwise pattern between the three pans. Note that the placement of the pans and even the arrangement of the notes within the pans can vary according to the style of the cello pan
