Meinl HD5-WJ Sonic Energy Harmonic Art Handpan
The Meinl HD5-WJ Handpan is a beautiful instrument with a tuning-range of D/ A, A#, C, D, E, F, A. Before we go any further, just listen to it perform in the following video…
Is that not one of the most mysteriously calming wave of harmonic sounds you’ve ever heard? We certainly think so and are pleased to be able to offer these incredible instruments.
All Meinl HD5-WJ Handpans are individually hand-made using top grade German steel, chosen for both its ability to be worked by hand and its strength to hold the tunings. The Meinl HD5-WJ Handpan is made to last a lifetime and has a price to match its longevity. However, be warned; many cheaper brands do not have the same quality-control during their manufacture and are often found with inaccurate tunings.
Not so with Meinl.
All Meinl Harmonic Art Handpans produce clear and pure notes when struck by hand, due to the sheer quality of craftsmanship during their creation. As you can hear from the video, the tone is pleasing, soothing, and relaxing which means they are perfect instruments for street-performance and also extend into the areas of alternative healing therapies (as we see with Gongs). Each Handpan is tuned with a centre note with another seven notes added around the circumference allowing the player to work within a musical scale.
This Handpan has a 21.65″ diameter and a height of 9.84″.
Includes a protective cover made from durable, light steel and a heavy-duty nylon padded bag for protection during transportation. The bag features a layer of synthetic fur on the inside and comes with padded back-straps for extra comfort.
These instruments are the sound of the future and will open open opportunities for percussion and drum players who want to play a more melodic part in music performance. We don’t just bang things y’know!
