"Each Coyle pan is a work of art with incredible sound and incredible attention to detail. Alan Coyle, in my opinion is a leader of the next generation of pan makers."

"Coyle Steel Drums are among the very best crafted today. All of their instruments have an exceptionally full rich tone, which can be heard throughout the dynamic spectrum. In terms of service, I have always been more than pleased with Alan's attention to detail whether it be tuning, blending, or chroming and painting."
-Jason Koontz
Director, Eastern Kentucky University Steel Band

"Alan, your work is AMAZING! I think in some ways the pan sounds better now than it did before! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!"
The pan had been hit by a truck, and half the skirt had been crushed up against the bowl. Most of the bowl was convex.

I am very, very pleased with this pan.  The dynamic range is incredible !!!  The consistency from note to note is unbelievable.  I  don't have to struggle at all with this note or that note not speaking.  THIS IS THE CR'EME DE LA CR'EME !!! Much appreciation for your artistry,
