New model since 2017: This Instrument is a new voice in the steel pan family. It is made to play with your hands, on the lap. It is constructed from tempered steel. These hand pans are completely shaped by hand on the island of Bali, Indonesia. We have been working lots on improving the sound of the highest notes. Tuning a major 3rd into them witch makes the octave come out more strongly as well. This also improves the sound of the lower notes because of sympathetic resonance. So now when you hit a lower note the sound is much fuller because you are hearing 6 tuned harmonics.
