Handpans

(Showing 27 of 27)

The unique, soft, ethereal and mysterious sound of the steel handpan captivates everyone. The soothing tones take the listener on a spiritual journey. We're seeing this instrument used in modern, EDM music, sound therapy and as musical accompaniment for spiritual activities such as yoga or meditation.

The handpan is the perfect combination of percussion and melody instrument. As part of their manufacturing process, two steel bowl halves are put together then elaborately hammered by hand. This creates dents and a small hill in the middle of the body. These surfaces become the various sound fields. The central note is located in the middle and is surrounded by a circle of additional notes.
