Please excuse the miss spelling of the word Tobago, it was a typical error on my path.

IMHO, the tones I experienced as sounding the best invoking the likes of Stradivarius and Steinway are; Herman "Guppy" Brown and Roland Harrigan.

Pure "BULL SHIT"...

depends on the type of pan- butch kellman and roland harrigan for the back ground pans

Puer "BULL SHIT"...

My best overall present Pan tuner in T'dad & Tobago   B Kellman,  Guppy Brown,  R Harrigan,  W Austin, LLoyd Gay, Anthony Williams

My best overall Past tuners in T'dad & Tobago B Marshall, Allan Gervais, Lincoln Noel, Herman rock Johnson, R. Charles
