The Akabono scale has no tonic or “root” note so any note in the scale can be used at the root. Even though it only has 5 different notes, the ability of each one to be the root allows a tremendous amount of freedom and exploration. This collection of notes is quite hypnotic, majestic, mysterious and almost enchanting and simultaneously haunting.
Inspired by the European hang drum, our Mini Handpans have 7 distinct note panels and ship with a protective backpack style bag.
With a strong Steel Pan drum flavour in their sound, these Mini Handpans are great for anyone wanting a smaller, compact size pan to add a rich, melodic sound to their ensemble.
We were stoked to recently land our first batch of Mini Handpans … it’s been a long journey to finally get the sound and texture we want in this compact version.
We are 100% sure you’ll love the brighter tonal quality and overall sound on this model
