ECO-SHEEN the best protection for your pan

ECO-SHEEN is a new, revolutionary and environmentally safe way to clean, seal, polish, and protect your pan. Eco-Sheen can also be used on cars, trucks, R.V’s, boats, motorcycles, airplanes, mirrors; windows, fiberglass, chrome, plastic, or any glossy painted surface.

Use ECO-SHEEN in any weather - hot, cold, or humid. Your pan will shine!
It’s as Easy as 1, 2, 3...
1. Apply ECO-SHEEN™ directly to your pan.
2. Spray it on evenly, right over the dirt, grime, or marks.
3. Polish with a soft dry cloth.

Product Features:
• Cleans, seals, polishes, and protects in one easy step without water.
• Works on any hard surface.
• Safe on all types of paint, including clear-coat.
• Cleans dirt, grime, marks, road haze, and road tar.
• Safely and effectively removes oxidation.
• Removes paint overspray.
• Great around the house for counters, kitchens or bathrooms.
• Use on glossy painted surfaces, metal, glass, mirrors, plastic, fiberglass, and chrome.
Our exclusive formula, Electrotek-PCM™ is saturated with positively charged ions, that chemically (ionically) adhere to the negative surfaces of the vehicle. ECO-SHEEN™ is enhanced with liquid carnauba wax which protects the vehicle’s delicate surface. After the final step with the polishing cloth, a hard waxed sheen remains giving a long lasting protective finish.

The Harmonizer A Must for Every Pan Player!

The Harmonizer is the most incredibly comprehensive reference music tool we have come across. It is a music course in itself. But it also allows you to get the most from your pan lessons or self-study courses. You will progress on your pan much faster when you add it to your learning program.

If you’re new to steel drums/pan, it is important to understand that music is a language, and the sound of your steel drum is your voice. The notes on your pan are equivalent to the alphabets in this language. But if you are to communicate intelligently, you need to know and understand the grammar and vocabulary of the language. That is found in music theory. And there is no more comprehensive tool or device on the market for that purpose than the Harmonizer.

The thing that the Harmonizer is best at is making music fun. It is fun when you can play what you want and play along with others. It is fun when you can compose and improvise with ease. It is fun when you delight others who listen to you.

Here are some other features and benefits you'll enjoy:
• It gives you mastery of chord names and usage.
• Shows how to use scales and modes for improvising and soloing.
• Shows you chord substitutions to give your playing more originality.
• Shows new and versitile chord progressions.
• Lets you transpose from key to key easily.
• Shows you how to modulate from one key to another smoothly.
• Shows you modes and chords derived from the diatonic (major) scale.
• Shows you modes and chords derived from the melodic minor (jazz) scale.
• Shows you modes and chords derived from the harmonic minor scale.
• Shows you intervals, chord extentions, and more.
• Helps improve your ear by showing you likely tonal possibilities.
• Gives you a vocabulary you can use to communicate to other musicians.
• Fuels your creativity by giving you more musical ideas to work with.
• Makes playing fun by making it easier to play along with others.
• Gives you confidence from a better understanding of music.

With this knowledge of music you will feel more confident playing your pan and enjoy jamming with others. It's amazing!
Comes in two color styles, Techno and Classic. Each has the same musical information and comes with a 40-page guide to understanding music theory.

It’s the best investment you’ll ever make in your music education. You already have the voice, why not learn the language that makes it sing!
