E Paradiso – (E), G#, B, D#, E, F#, G#, B
This is our first try at a major scale on a handpan, and we are absolutely delighted with the result. E Paradiso is simply an E Major scale, with the 4th and 6th intervals omitted to allow greater range in the register. The spread of notes is evenly distributed between E3 and B5, with two instances each of the E, G#, B major triad. The result is a bright, sweetly singing handpan that invokes a peaceful, sunny forest clearing.
Comes with a padded carry backpack.
Our Primo Series Handpans are hand-hammered from first grade pressed steel, giving long sustain and beautiful harmonies.
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.
Note: This handpan has a few very small flaws in the powder coat finish. This will not affect the sound or life of the instrument in any way. However, these spots should be afforded more care when maintaining the handpan in order to prevent the formation of unsightly rust. This has been factored into the sale price.
