Steeldrum Tuning

Qualifications and Experience

Steve has been tuning steelpans professionally since 1992, when he started a steelpan company known as "PanMaster Steelband Services" in South Africa. At that time, there was only one steelband in South Africa ("Andrew Tracey's Steelband").

Between 1992 and 2000, PanMaster made all the steeldrums sold in South Africa, as well as exporting many pans to other countries, such as Brazil, Australia, Botswana, the UK, and the USA. By the time Steve moved to the USA in 2000, there were in excess of 100 steelbands in South Africa.

From 2000 to 2007 Steve was intimately involved in the evolution of the steeldrum at Panyard, Inc., where he was head tuner from 2003 until 2007.

If you are looking to keep your pans in tip-top condition, you need look no further.
