Ed Peters has been involved in the art of Pan Tuning since 1964. As he continued to develop his craft he co-ordinated with Mike Salvador where together they explored the scientific foundation of the steel pan. Mr Salvador provided invaluable data based on his knowledge of math and physics while Peters converted and applied this knowledge to the technology of steelpan manufacturing. They have been awarded a Canadian patent for their efforts and have presented these results at numerous symposia in Canada. Trinidad and Tobago. Today, Edward Peters continues to engage in research to increase the understanding of the science of the steelpan.
