NEW PRODUCT – Steel Drum Kit by Gakken


Pianists? No! Pannists? Yes! Educate yourself on the sounds of Trinidad and Tobago with Gakken’s Steel Drum Kit. Put together a four-note steelpan with an 1/8th inch output and ride the soundwaves down to the Caribbean islands.

The kit includes the drum, a pickup that magnetizes to the bottom of the drum, a stand for the drum, mallets, and an 1/8th inch out.

Amplifier and batteries not included!

Like many of our Gakken kits, the instructions are all in Japanese but there are pictures on how to assemble it and we didn’t have too much trouble putting it together.

Gakken is a Japanese publishing company founded in 1946. In the 1970s, they began selling educational toys, books, magazines, and electronic kits. Their kits are known for their smart design and relative ease of use and have a large cult following both in Japan and the United States.
