….. It’s on its way to the Guinness World Book of Records!!!
On June 25, 2010, The Reel Ting Steel Drum Band introduced the Worlds Largest Steel Drum. The band performed with this new musical Steel drum instrument at a wedding event at the Premier Banquet Hall located in Miami Florida. The Steel Drum measures over 40 inches in diameter and has over five octave ranges. This incredible engineering innovation will revolutionize the way Steel Drums will be designed in the future. The sustained vibrancy, range, residence is triple that of a standard manufactured steel drum instrument.
