The Jumbie Jam is supplied with a pair of mallets, which are rubber tipped at both ends to protect the pan itself from the shaft of the mallet. This does also offer unique opportunities for experimental playing techniques! Tenor/lead steel pan mallets can also be used to play Jumbie Jam, these are typically slightly longer than the mallets supplied with the set.
Also available to purchase is the Tom & Will Jumbie Jam gig bag. This clever storage and transport solution provides separate sections for the pan, stand and accessories and can be carried either by hand or backpack style.
, the whole instrument vibrates to make a pan's characteristic Caribbean sound which means they are properly classified as 'idiophones', the same family as cymbals.
