Just curious to know if any of you have a "moving charge"....money charged to the client for "relocating" you after the first set.  If you do charge, is it in your contract, or do you just spring it…Continue

Pan Kat

Alternate Mode Pan KAT



Up for auction is a Pan KAT Midi Steel Drum that I used to play reggae tunes.  I have had the Pan KAT for 10 + years but really only used it for about a year to play solo steel drum and some Jimmy Buffett tunes for friends (I am a guitar player).  The original unit cost about $1,800 without the case and I am offering it up for $825 plus shipping.  I used an older Roland MIDI sampler (not included) for the steel drum sounds but IndigiSounds (YouTube link…

I just finished getting 2 of David Berrys tunes done but haven't played them out yet.  
Yours are some of my favorites at gigs.

Yes!  Very soon!  I am in the process of purchasing a home, so life is very hectic right now.  I will have time soon though.  I want to start playing on a regular basis.  Wanna do Third Thurs again when the weather is warmer?  I need to learn some new tunes, too.  :)

Hi Brad,

  I am actually the tech guy at Avella HS.  I created the account so I could be sure I enabled all the necessary URLs.  Our band director and his kids will be using the site.  I wouldn't know the top of a steel drum from the bottom.  You should be hearing from them soon.

Tuning in Germany / Europe

Hello everyone, 

yesterday my pan was retuned. in 1.5 hours it sounds very nice again.

Mr. Eckhard Schulz and Martin Speck explained a lot to me about the Pan that I had acquired. Very interesting.

Here is the address if someone wants a tuning in Europe or a new Pan Made in Germany.

seeking backtracks and sheet music

I play double tenor and am looking to buy quality backtracks with corresponding sheet music to add  to my repertoire. I'm a strict reader and weak with improv.  Brad Shores has been a Big help and I have all 9 of his books.  Any other suggestions for expanding my repertoire?  Thanks!
