Jumbie Jams are colourful steel pans that bring fun and creativity into the room.
These Jumbie Jam Steel Pans give a very Caribbean, tropical vibe. They are made with high quality and produce a professional sound. Perfect for beginners, the steel pans have the notes marked on them to hopefully make playing a bit easier. They are all tuned to the key of G and come with mallets and beginner guide to get you going.
Jumbie Jams are a great way to encourage children to start playing music as steel pans are an unusual yet fun way to make music. It’s different to the typical instrument that most students will begin to learn music on. There is no hard technique involved in playing the jumbie jams (such as an embouchure or holding something heavy) which will encourage students to persevere. They introduce the idea of scales and will allow students to work on other techniques such as rhythm and timing.
If you fancied ‘vamping’ up the aesthetics, they also come in other colours such as pink and blue! These also come with funky feet at the bottom of the stand for extra balance.
These are the same as the above, the only difference being the stand is shorter so they can be played at either a desk or any other surfaces.
The table top steel pans are perfect for the classroom. Students can sit at the desk whilst still being able to play an instrument, making it less manic than if you were to have full size stands. These also won’t need to take up extra floor space and come in a range of colours to choose from.
Also great for the classroom or bigger groups are the Jumbie Jam packs. They are a pack of 4 table top steel pans.
These also come in the same colour range as the single steel pans.
So your classroom or music group can be a traditional grey or a bright and cheery pink, blue or purple!
If you are on the go a lot and need to take your trusty Jumbie Jam with you, you’ll be pleased to know we sell gig bags.
Even if you only move from classroom to classroom, or would like safer storage, the gig bags are a great purchase.
The bag also provides room for both table top and full size stands in a separate compartment to the actual pan. The bag is made from waterproof and no-rip material so neither your Jumbie Jam or bag is getting ruined!
Decided you want a full-size steel pan instead or as well? The Jumbie Jam Z Stand will solve that problem without you having to buy a whole new steel pan. The stand is adjustable and lightweight. This way, you can swap between full size or table top size, depending on where you are or who is playing.
The Cap Hook is also sold separately in case of emergency. They are very small and could easily get lost (unless you have the gig bag of course)! They are suitable for both the standalone and table top Jumbie Jam steel pan.
