The Klangauge®-Handpan

The Klangauge Handpan production is in full swing.

I am totally excited and glad that we can offer you such a special Handpan. The Handpan meets my high quality requirements for a musical instrument and you can tell. Already at the sight of the color my heart laughs. But, of course, it’s much more than that.

Handpan is the name for a group of musical instruments created in response to the worldwide interest in the »Hang«, a hand-crafted brass instrument that was developed by a Swiss company in 2000 and built until 2013. The name »Hang« means hand. It is Bern German, because you play the instrument with the Hang (hand).

Offered here is a Klangauge-Handpan, not a »Hang«.

The first musical instruments of this kind were made in the Caribbean from old oil barrels and are still known as “Steel Drum”.

As material for our HandPans, we have chosen a special stainless steel alloy. This produces very full and warm tones. So the pan is absolutely stainless and I find the reddish color, which is created by heating the metal, much friendlier and more pleasant than the usual gray. In addition, it can be dispensed with in my opinion questionable process of nitriding.

Tuning: Celtic Minor / Kurd # D / A Bb C D E F G A

This tuning has a very special sound character and above all, it is also very common, which means that you can play very well with other Handpan players or completely different musicians/instruments together. The atmosphere is easy to play and therefore very suitable for beginners.

Other tunings on request.
