Hi Dave, you could check out this book set, http://www.panstarpublishing.com/  they sell it at the Steel Drum Shop in your neck of the woods. 29 unison exercises in every key, all in the proper ranges, reproducible, etc. Also, if you email me I can send you some chorale warm- ups for pan in a few weeks. Hope you find what you need, take care
