dc.description.abstract Percy Oblington aka the Mighty Striker one of the first panmen to read and write music, and the winner of the first Dimanche Gras Calypso Monarch competition has invented a new steelpan called the Chord Master. The pan is comprised of three specially-tuned pans. In the right hand, the pannist holds a special stick that is really three sticks screwed on to a bridge at the bottom. Three sticks hit the pan with every movement of the right wrist. One of the other pans is played with two sticks and the third with one. The Chord Master boasts 34 notes in the soprano range, and Striker claims it will be easier to play. en_US
