I'm not a pan player, just an avid lover of pan music and as a listener I do agree with you and Glen that in most videos of steelband performances the bass is quite weak. Causes???

As an old steelpan player,this is my observation all long,,for most of the bands ,,,,the bass section,,,,,is very weak,,,the only time it,s clearly heard is whenever thereis a break for a solo  and ,possibly a deviation,,,i once read a comment by Mr Glen Joseph reevant to this ,whereby it,s a fact,,in listening to the videos,, what,s heard mostly is the rythm and tenor section,,there need to be a balance in such,,my old saying is,,, that to dance you mus follow the bass  which is at it,s minimal on most videos that i,ve so far heard,,even though this can be to the recording quality of same even though i have doubts,,i,m totally subject to corrections,,but for the benefit of the doubt one should listen keenly,,for this part i,m speaking as a steelpan tuner, trainer and arranger,,,one must be having very keen ears to detect same,,,once more i,m subject to corrections.
