(Showing 17 of 17)

The unique, soft, ethereal and mysterious sound of this instrument captivates everyone. The soothing sound takes the listener on a spiritual journey. We're seeing this instrument used in modern, EDM music, sound therapy and 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.
