The 9 note handpan in D minor is very easy to play and has a vast possibility of sounds. The instrument has notes within two octave ranges from D3 to D5 and is tuned to the traditional D minor pentatonic scale. All 9 notes of the handpan 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.
It is also possible to use the other surfaces of the instrument to make percussive harmonics, such as snares and hi-hat like sounds.
