Meinl HD6-Expert Sonic Energy Harmonic Art Handpan
The Meinl HD6-Expert Handpan is a beautiful instrument with a tuning-range of D#/ G#, A#, B, C#, D#, F#, G#.
All Meinl HD6-Expert 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 HD6-Expert 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!
