More Details

Ursa Minor, meaning Little Bear, is another winner in the handpan world. Similar to the Gudu and Integral tunings, Ursa minor is a variation of the natural minor scale. This time, there is no 7th note (usually B or Bb). This omission causes the scale to hover between the natural and harmonic minor, letting the listener interpret for themselves how the mood is established through the music. The notes are clustered in the upper register of the scale, creating upward movement as we are carried to the stars by the flowing melody.

Our Master Series Handpans are made from first grade pressed iron 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 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.
