CINEMATIC STEEL DRUMS: Somewhat “beat up” Steel Drums (early 2000s--from Myers USA oil drums, 0.8mm thickness), with the following INACCURATE tunings (as written on the drums):
Drum #1 (Lower register: G, A, B, C#, Eb, F, G, A, B; Higher register: C#, Eb, F, G, A, B)
Drum #2 (Lower register: F#, G#, Bb, C, D, E, F#, G#, Bb; Higher register: C, D, E, F#, G, Bb)
Note that each drum is 1/2 step off from the other. Again, NOT precise tuning. These are FANTASTIC for two-handed, rhythmic horror/suspense cues--especially when TWO people play these (using four hands, total), in similar rhythms. Impossible to reproduce with a sample library. These takes are 100% improvised, though based on a "target," of sorts. With effects added (the drums are dry in the vid), some pretty otherworldly atmospheres can be conjured :-)
