Pi Steel Pan Drums are made right here in Australia by a very talented and established local musican, who has over 20 years in the industry. Pi's experience and rich knowledge of music has culminated in creating a world class instrument. Every Pi Steel Pan is unique and features warm tones and beautiful harmonics.
They are meticulously tuned with each tone field containing 3 notes - the tonic, the octave and the colour. The colour can be the 3rd or the 5th, but mostly below the octave the colour note is the fifth and above the octave the colour note is the third.
Made to the highest standards using quality Australian steel that has been treated with nitride at 510 degrees celsisus to protect against rust and then dry oil finished.
Pi Steel Drums include a Stainless Steel top cover with carry handle to protect the instrument and easy travelling. In addition the lid can be placed on a carpet or cushion and works perfectly well as a calabash. The soundhole on the underside of the Steel Pan can be played to replicate an Udu claypot. 3 instruments in 1.
The maker is based in Oz for all your servicing, tuning, warranty requirements and for your own peace of mind.

Fantastic friendly and professional service for a wonderful instrument
I was lucky enough to find a Pi Steel Pan Drum at Threeworlds a few weeks ago. From the beginning, employees there were very kind, explaining the differences between the two available options and sending me a video so I could listen and make an informed decision. The instrument itself is just simply incredible: warm tones, excellent pitch, and beautifully made. And to receive it in Holland only a few days after ordering it....what a treat! Thanx so much for making my day Threeworlds!

Solid, epic sounds.
We have been selling these for years, from the original Hand Pan from PanArt, and finally have the Australian made version! These are really high quality. The tuning is spot on and the fact that we can get them tuned in Australia is a HUGE plus. Saying that, the metal feels heaps thicker than the recent Bali made ones so i feel more confident in the tuning holding through heavier hits.
It also comes with the hard metal lid. This is perfect to protect it when transporting. A really well considered addition.
Can't go wrong with these if you manage to get your hands on one.
Stocks are still well below demand.
