Introducing the Percussion Plus Hammer Series triple cello steel pans, painted finish
A 'triple cello' of painted 23" steel pans supplied with 2 rubber tipped mallets, a solid adjustable and collapsible chrome stand on wheels, and a stand bag.
Each surface features a 7-note diminished arpeggio, and the pans are tuned a semi-tone apart, giving a combined chromatic range of C3-G#4. Panyard's mastery of the physics and geometry of steel pans means these instruments have the optimum layout and timbral consistency.
For cello pan cases see see PP9255.Please note: all pans now have a black powder coated exterior with a matte grey playing surface to match the cello and bass pans appearance.
What’s in the box?
This model comes supplied with 2 rubber tip mallets and a complete chrome stand. The stand itself has been made with high quality materials so you can be sure of it being solid and sturdy.
The stand is designed to bring the playing area of the 3 individual pans as close together as possible making it easier to play faster music. It comes on wheels so you are able to easily move it around between practices and it is also collapsible and adjustable so you can make sure that the stand is the right height for you.
More about the Hammer series steel pan range
Often incorrectly referred to as steel drums, the whole instruments vibrate to make their characteristic Caribbean sound which means they are properly classified as 'idiophones', the same family as cymbals.
Panyard have been manufacturing exceptional instruments since 1990 and the mid-range Percussion Plus Hammer Series contains the best quality affordable pans in the world.
Constructed in USA from specially made steel, they are then tuned and finished by experienced constructors. They are a great option for school as students are permitted to experiment using different playing techniques so they can experience the different methods in which the Hammer series drums can be played.

Both steel pans and steel drums refer to the same thing. Steel pan players will often use rolls, which are rapid fire playing of the same note many times to create a more continuous sound. This allows for stimulated playing of longer notes that maintain their strength rather than decaying such as a single hit would produce
