The Double Guitar Instrument is commonly known as the Guitar Pan. This instrument is made from 2, 55-gallon steel drums of specific thickness to product quality sounds from each note. This instrument is part of the front section of the Steelharmonic OrchestraTM.
The Steelharmonic OrchestraTM was originally invented in Trinidad in the 1930’s. The steelpan is the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago and the latest invention in the family of musical instruments.
The instrument consist of a set of two steel pans mounted side by side on specially designed stands. This instrument produces the accompanying chords to the melody and has the strumming effect of a guitar.
The Kellman and Nkosi brands consist of over 50 years of steelpan manufacture, design, experience and innovations. This combination guarantees the highest quality handmade instruments, professionally blended, tuned and finished for the highest quality playing and listening pleasure.
The note layouts are all the unique Kellman and Nkosi designs, resulting in a combination of years of experience and advanced understanding of the physics and geometry of each section of the instruments which makes up the Steelharmonic OrchestraTM.
Our instruments provide the optimum playing ability and timbral consistency. All instruments are manufactured from specifications, on special steel specific for each type of instrument.
Each instrument is guaranteed to provide the highest quality sound for both player and listener.
The advantage to this design is that the notes can be “synchronized”. Notes on the left instrument are a semi-tone higher than notes in the same position on the right instrument.
