The instrument has two octave ranges from D3 to D5 and is tuned to the traditional D minor pentatonic scale. The 9 note handpan in D minor is very easy to play and has a vast possibility of sounds. Check out the video below to see it in action.
All 9 notes of the handpan have a lovely resonance, however it is also possible for players to use the other surfaces of the instrument to make other harmonics, such as snares and hi-hat like sounds.
In comparison to the early handpans, which usually had a smaller diameter, this handpan has a slightly larger 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.
The smooth coating makes it very comfortable to play and feel while it weighs only 5kg, making it very easy to carry. This Handpan comes with its own shoulder carry case and a protective cover.
The instrument includes a hard cover shell to protect it during transport, it also includes a backpack style soft case for both protection / storage and ease of transportation.
Please note: Players are advised to only use their hands when playing these instruments as excessive force or playing with foreign objects could potentially cause damage.
