PanStream Handpans

Instruments available for workshops.

Mark Wilson’s roots go back to Trinidad, where he learned the craft of building and playing steelpans. Panstream are world renowned for their unique and meticulously hand-built pans, which are hand-crafted in Cornwall by Mark and Gunita Wilson. PanStream handpans are made from 1.2mm thick DC04 metal sheets. Their shells are hydro-formed, nitrided, and heat-treated in the process and a unique coloration is the result of temperature and duration of heating.
