Hello Music Friends
I'm really excited about playing my newly tuned drum. It is currently being worked on by Rob Davis of Mannette Steel Drums in Morgantown W.V.
Mannette Steel Drums is headed by legenedary steel drum pioneer Ellie Mannette, who has created some of the world's finest instruments
Five years ago Rob did the initial and only tuning of my drum. Yes, its been five years since the instrument was tuned but still has maintained it's lovely tone.
It was a specialty order - A "Professional Series" Bore lead pan. One of the few Bore leads built by Mannette Steel, that resulted in a drum that was asthetically pleasing and quite sonarous - a "Sweet Pan" if you will. Like many musicians, I've developed an attachment to my musical instrument. I named her Nevaeh, which is heaven spelled backwards. I affectionately refer to her as "Baby".
