Brake Drum (The Iron)

Regular price $49.99 $0.00 Unit price per

In a steelband, "The Iron" is an instrument used for rhythmic accompaniment and makes a sharp metallic sound. In early steelbands, players would use anything they could find (scrap metal of all types) for this purpose. Today, you see many bands using old vehicle brake drums for a great "clean" sounding metal tone. 

This item includes one brake drum that has been de-rusted, cleaned, painted, and is ready to be used in your band. Includes one pair of "beaters" (thin metal rods for playing). Color will be random.

As for shipping, this big chunk of metal weighs about 15 pounds, and depending on WHERE we are shipping, could cost between $18-$35 to ship. We've automated a $25 shipping cost, but we'd be happy to look into custom shipping options if needed, just let us know!
