You don’t expect to find Caribbean music in New England, let alone a crafter of Caribbean instruments. But that’s exactly what we’ve discovered in Eric Rollnick. Eric has been creating pans (melodic instruments made from steel drums, hammered out of 55-gallon barrels) since 1992, after extensive travel and study in Trinidad and Tobago. The pans (from $950) are hung from S-hooks on stands that let them vibrate freely when hit with a rubber mallet. Made by Maccabee Panworks, North Conway, New Hampshire. 603-447-5107; ajajamusic.com
