Each of the 8 notes have a beautiful resonant sound with plenty of sustain due to the instruments larger diameter.
In comparison to the early handpans, which usually had a smaller diameter, this handpan is a bit bigger, with a diameter of 57cm. This means the notes are a little more spread out and because of this, the larger diameter creates deeper bass note sound with slightly more sustain.
This 8 note handpan is tuned in the F Minor Akebono scale. The Akebono scale is a musical scale commonly used in traditional Japanese music.
It is also possible to use the other surfaces of the instrument to make percussive harmonics, such as snares and hi-hat like sounds.
