Master Series Handpan – E-flat Pygmy
Eb Pygmy – (Eb), G#, A#, B, C#, Eb, F#, G#
The pygmy scale changes things up with a tightly clustered scale. It is harmonically equivalent to G# Natural Minor, but because the Ding (lowest note) is E-flat, the scale feels quite different. An interesting scale for anyone keen to explore!
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.
