This unique instrument, known as the Handpan or Pantam (israelien community), was originally designed by 2 Swiss artists in 2000 who called it Hang and found the company panart. All other similar instruments, copied and made by someone else are called the Handpan. It is made of special nitrated steel. The artist hammers every tone into the pan. You choose your scale, as you wish. There are Handpans which have up to 22 notes. Amazing.
Mine is a Lupan Handpan, a very beautiful instrument.The instrument itself has a great healing potential. The vibration of these metallic tones let shift our whole energy field into harmony. I truely enjoy playing on it.
