Master Series Handpan – F Minor TEN Notes!
F Minor Special – (F), (G), (Ab), C, Db, Eb, F, G, Ab, G
With a whopping TEN notes, the F Minor Special handpan offers a huge range of play. Similar to the Gudu and Integral tunings, this F minor is a natural minor scale. Lots of focus on small intervals gives this handpan a dark, cool and complex sound. The two additional notes sit on the bottom half of the instrument, requiring a slight modification to playing technique. Recommended for more confident players.
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 drumof 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 handpan drums for sale.
