How to buy a handpan
"As the hang is no longer manufactured by the original manufacturer and creator, new instruments featuring the same shape and sound are now all part of the HANDPAN family.
A handpan is not easy to find in shops; it is a handmade instrument, a handcrafted piece which, as a top quality violin, is normally purchased at a craftsman’s lab.
Every manufacturer has his own months’, or even years’ long waiting list mostly depending on the individual requests by the purchasers. Many people have asked me where to buy a handpan, which characteristics make a handpan better than another, whether there is a scale to measure quality and finally, how much to spend to properly begin handpan practice.
As it was never easy for me to give proper advice, I have finally resolved to create my own handpan label to guarantee conveniently priced, top quality instruments.
I am glad and proud to present you the brand new “Lombardo HANDPAN” series, featuring different scales.
D minor - (D), A, Bb, C, D, E, F, G, A
Oxalis scale - (G), B, C, D, E, G, B, C, D
Saladin scale - (D), G, A, C, D, Eb, F#, G, A
Chandra scale - (D), G, A, Bb, C, D, Eb, F, G
Hijaz scale - (D), A, Bb, C#, D, E, F, G, A
C# minor 1 - C#, G#, B, C#, D#, E, F#, G#, A
Even though each piece is mostly handmade, I do guarantee fast manufacturing times."
