Images from 1988



Various failed pans...the leads are all Invader style.  The one in front (without the skirt....) had a fantastic high Eb, I remember when I tuned it it just worked immediately.  I cut the skirt off after that, in an attempt to get at the rim notes - bad idea.  I had just lucked out on that Eb, but it made me realize that it must be possible to build pans that were easy to tune.

Making a Bass Pan on Allanridge, December 1988.  It was about 105 F, and my buddy Robin and I rigged up this tent thing to keep cool.  The pans were awful, but we were awfully determined.

Robin showing us how to cut a pan.  We used a hacksaw, can you believe it!  It used to take us about half an hour per drum, and it was exhausting.  Robin and I were partners in crime trying to figure out this pan thing, we both had a passion for it, and both had the same kind of analytical minds.  Robin came with me to Trinidad in 1993-1994, and played with Exodus for Panorama that year (I played for Renegades).

I cannot believe we used these barrels to try and make pans.  This was on Allanridge, December 1988, with my good friend Robin.  I guess they were barrels we could afford, which meant they were free....
