      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.

      Reasons to embrace a wet wedding day | Steelasophical Steel Band Advice

      Reasons to embrace a wet wedding day | Steelasophical Steel Band Advice Reasons to embrace a wet wedding day | Steelasophical Steel Band Advice Why Rain Won't Ruin Your Wedding Day While most couples will dread a damp wedding day with visions of chilly guests, muddy venues and damp dresses, there is still every possibility of having a truly memorable day even after the heavens open. Since it is impossible to control the weather, the best course of action is to fully embrace the situation and get prepared for every eventuality. Here are just a few reasons why rain doesn't need to put a dampener on your special day: 1) Great wedding photographs Even light is still possible on an overcast day. On occasion, the bright, sunny days can make it a little more difficult to capture those special moments, especially if taking shots in direct sunlight. However, the cloudy skies create that extra texture for a stunning backdrop for all your wedding photographs. Completely clear or multi-coloured, there are many artistic opportunities to get creative and take full advantage of the shots taken in the rain. Maybe it is even possible to use a rainbow as the backdrop once an awful storm comes to an end. 2) Let down those barriers Rain can help to bring guests together when it is necessary to huddle under a shelter or share an umbrella. Plus, most people will naturally let down their personal space in times like this, which will mean that guests and strangers are more likely to interact and create new friendships. 3) Hilarious and unexpected moments There may be plenty of opportunities to embrace the comedic value of rain. On a bright sunny day, there is the likelihood of everything going just as planned. But, if the rain starts to fall, there is a greater change of hilarious moments ensuing. Wet shoes, leaking roofs, puddles everywhere ñ while it might not seem that funny [...]

      G a r y Trotman2018-05-20T09:18:18+00:00May 20th, 2018|Comments Off on Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band 

      Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band  Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band  Music is such a key element to any wedding in helping to create the right atmosphere. Music is typically played during the wedding ceremony, during the taking of photographs and during the evening reception. It's important to choose your music carefully to reflect the type of wedding you are hosting. For example if you plan to have a formal wedding with all the pomp and ceremony then perhaps an ensemble, quartet or soloist will work well for the occasion. If your wedding is to have more of a contemporary feel then perhaps you might wish to consider a live band. Do however bear in mind there are no hard and fast rules to choosing music for your wedding. You should have music which you like and that would appeal to a large number of your guests. Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band  When trying to find musicians or bands for your wedding ask if they can supply a sample of their music, that way you will be able to get a feel of the music and decide whether you like it or not. They should have experience performing at a wedding. Do they have a play list and are you able to contribute to the play list? If you are considering hiring a band find out whether guests will be able to ask for requests during the course of the bands set, as this often adds to the enjoyment of the evening. Consult with the wedding venue with regards to the music entertainment you want for the evening.  Ensure the musicians or band liaise with the wedding venue in advance so they know exactly where to set up on the day and whether there is sufficient space. Get a quote for their services, ask that it be itemised so that you can see exactly what you are getting for your money. For example, will [...]

      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…

      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
