Calypso Steel Drum HearthSong

Calypso Steel Drum Island magic fills the air when you play this most intriguing of instruments. Handcrafted on the island of Trinidad, this steel drum is a smaller version of the famous pan steel drums that are played there. It can still play an octave of notes (9, actually) though. How? Nine depressions are verrrrry carefully pounded in the steel drumhead until they achieve exactly the width and depth that will create certain notes of the musical scale. They appear as small hills to the musician, who sees the flip side of the drumhead. Each is clearly marked with a letter that matches the music in the included songbook. Suspend the drum in its wooden stand, grab the mallets, and have a blast playing beautiful music.
