Master Series Handpan – D Celtic
D Celtic – (D), A, C, D, E, F, G, A, C
With 9 notes, the D Celtic has a beautiful, even spread of notes, giving you lots of room to explore. The scale is built around D Natural Minor, but since there is no B, the scale remains quite “open” and flexible. Easy to pair with other instruments in almost any of the white-key notes.
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 instrument from 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 will be rewarded with deep layers of complexity to explore.
We have a range of handpans for sale.
