The G Minor Pentatonic in the Phrygian scale is actually a very intriguing one. In fact, the Phrygian scale on this 7 Note Handpan is altered slightly so that it resembles more that of the Freygish or Klezmer scale, which has some relationship with traditional Hungarian and Gypsy music. The gypsy-like scale really brings the performance to life and really allures to feelings of being outside, with nature and out on some kind of journey.
Despite only being 3cm smaller in diameter than its handpan brothers, the compact size makes a lot more efficient to carry, both in and outside the case. The 7 Note Handpan has incredible resonance thanks to its original height of 24cm and the same sized Gu hole of 9 cm. Although limited to 7 Notes only, this is plenty for an enjoyable improvisation sessions and given the particular Phrygian scale.
All 7 notes of the Handpan have a lovely resonance, however players can also use other surfaces of the drum to make some effective harmonics. You can also use the head cover to make some similar percussive sounds. Overall, the Handpan is a beautiful instrument capable of charming all users and listeners. The smooth coating makes it very comfortable to play and feel while it weighs only 5kg, making it very easy to carry.
The 7 Note Handpan is definitely the best go-to option for anyone wanting a handpan that has a more comfortable size, reduced cost and still an impressive sound.
