A Moment in Pan

Global - The Triple Second  -- Invented by the late, great Rudolph Charles of  Desperadoes Steel Orchestra.

According to recognized and globally respected tuner Andy Neils:  the “Double Second has three common types - F#, F and E, the letter name being the lowest. The Triple second goes lower to C or B, as the Quadrophonic.”
