Panyard seems to offer two different models of steel drums.  One they apparently make themselves.  It is the more expensive of the two.  The other they import from Trinidad.  Does anyone have any experience with the ones that are imported from Trinidad?  Are they good quality?

Thanks for any advice that anyone may have.

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!
