PJ; thank's too U, for telling it like it is, U can only testify to what U know and saw, as a late former member of SNSE Mervyn Peters use to say, Quote; WE ONLY KNOW WHAT WE KNOW, unquote, to me, Williams is the "GOD" of pan, as he said GO FORTH'S and FIFTH'S unquote, Michel de Nostradomus in 1555 wrote 1,000 quatrain, qutrain is a 4 sentence paragraph but only 100 was published in french, aramic, and spanish which had to be transulated in english, in it # /// disclosed as follows; QUote;( In a Faraway Isle, With Parasol Images, An Instrument For Recording Sound, He would Mezmerize the World with Mystagogic tones), unquote,. just think about this, the "spider web pan" has straight lines down the middle, and look's like a parasol / umbrella, dose'nt it, the 4ths & 5ths technology was no fluke or guess work, people in the pan Sphere do not know these things,especially that Williams studied the movement of the planets in "Pythagoras theroum, any how, keep doing what U R doing my friend...

PG; again my hat's off too U, Anthony Williams designed it from the 4ths & 5ths tenor pan, left to right or clock wise, DA, CG, BbF, G#Eb, C#F#, BE, we have been using that setting on our stage side in North Stars since 1960, it's like splitting the 4ths & 5ths tenor pan in half, or walking in between the A&E, Williams desing all the voices from the 4ths & 5ths tenor pan, the double seconds are whole tones, or major minor, flat's on one side and #s sharps on the other, the triple cellos are in the "2nd" second interval, and the quad cellos is in the suspended interval, where this one is way over their heads as we lost them at this point, where U walk in between the D & A on the 4ths & 5ths tenor pan, the quadrophonic or ephoneium tone is the same as the quad cellos only higher in tone, where U come in between the G & D, I'll stop here for now, PG again I reitirate, my hat's off to U, because U seem to be the only one who know's where we are...

Mr GRAY; my hat's off to U, not to many people knows that "Pan" is already standardize, it standardize it's self upon creation/invention, the original 4ths & 5ths tenors started from low Cb or B, what they call en-harmonic, as we live in a world of duality, either or,  the North Stars double second started from low Eb, the Percy Thomas double tenor is from low F, where it had no low F#, untill Rupert "shadow" Nathaniel from "Symphonettes" modified it, the North Stars Cellos from low Bb, the Quad cellos from low A, and the Basses from low G, all Standardize it self upon creation, just like the Pianos, Guitars, Saxaphones, etc...
