We were stoked to recently land our first batch of Mini Handpans … it’s been a long journey to finally get the sound and texture we want in this compact version.
We are 100% sure you’ll love the brighter tonal quality and overall sound on this model.
With a strong Steel Pan drum flavour in their sound, these Mini Handpans are great for anyone wanting a smaller, compact size pan to add a rich, melodic sound to their ensemble.
The handpan is a mysterious instrument, distantly related in principle to the steelpan of Trinidad and Tobago, but inspired in sound by the Hang drum of Switzerland. Played by hand, rather than sticks or mallets, the handpan drum has a rich, intimate sound, full of emotion. There is no specific technique or style in the art of playing a handpan. A player with patience and an open mind and will be rewarded with deep layers of complexity to explore.
