This 9 Note Handpan in D Minor / Celtic was made specially to the same notes as the handpans used in Hang Massive’s beautiful composition, ‘Once Again’, found here: In addition, it offers an additional higher note, D5, which establishes its two octave range from D3 to D5.
The handpan includes the following notes: (D3), A3, Bb3, D4, E4, F4, A4, C5 and D5. The D3 to D5 provides two octaves of improvisation around the pentatonic minor but with a slight adjustment. Unlike the integral and akebono hand pans, the Celtic scale handpan replaces the conventional 4th note of the pentatonic scale (G) with the 6th note (Bb) instead. The Bb3 is largely effective because it creates a semitone difference with the A3, creating the urge to resolve and inducing tension. This tuning really expands the harmonic creativity and expressiveness for the player with just the slightest readjustment.
The Handpan comes with a firm case with shoulder straps and also a head cover to protect it during transport.
