Master Series Handpan – C# Minor
C# Minor Tuning – (C#), G#, B, C#, D#, E, F#, G#
Our C# Minor handpan uses the same scale as our Gudu Handpan, except everything is shifted down a half tone, to C# minor. This give the handpan a darker, moodier feel than our D Gudu version. The scale is a natural minor scale, related to the “Integral” tuning found in many handpans. It emphasises the higher range of the scale, with plenty of room for melodic inspiration!
Comes with a padded carry backpack.

Our Master Series Handpans are made from first grade pressed steel and have a larger volume, to help their resonance. Extra time is taken to tune higher sympathetic frequencies, resulting in a more harmonically balanced instrument.
The handpan is a new and 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 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.
We have a range of handpan drums for sale.
