The 7 Note Handpan in G Minor is the smallest and lightest handpan on offer, and for this reason, probably has closest resemblance of all handpans to a Tongue Drum, without sacrificing the original tones, notes and body shape of an original handpan. Despite only being 3cm smaller in diameter than the other tuning variations available, the compact size makes it a lot more efficient to carry, both in and outside of 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 enjoyable improvisation sessions, especially with its particular scale.
The Handpan is tuned to G Minor Pentatonic in the Phrygian scale. On this 7 Note Handpan the Phrygian scale is altered slightly so that it resembles more that of the 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, although that of course is entirely subjective!
The 7 Note Handpan is definitely the best go-to option for anyone wanting a handpan that has a more comfortable size, reduced cost yet still an impressive sound. Despite being competitively priced, the 7 Note Handpan in G Minor is perfect for any beginner but also any professional handpan player wanting to explore the intricacies of this very special scale.
