DESCRIPTION:
The Original 9 Note Handpan in D Minor uses all the notes of the pentatonic scale giving it a traditional sound and feel. The two octave range of 9 notes from D3-D5 is plentiful for extensive harmonic and melodic inventions. Standard Handpans typically have a smaller diameter, however, this handpan has a slightly larger diameter of 57cm which means the notes are not only more horizontal, but also more spread out.
The 9 Note Handpan in D minor plays beautifully and has some beautiful resonant sounds. The smooth coating makes it very comfortable to play and feel while it weighs only 5kg, making it very easy to carry.

TUNING:
Tuned to the traditional D minor pentatonic scale.

ADDITIONAL INFO:
This handpan comes with its own shoulder carry case and a protective cover.
All 9 notes of the Handpan have a lovely resonance but it is also possible for players to use the other surfaces of the drum and make some other harmonics. The head cover can also be used to make percussive sounds. Overall, the Handpan is a beautiful instrument capable of charming all users and listeners. Players are advised to only use their hands when playing these instruments as excessive force or beaters can potentially cause damage.

Video 3 (in Dark Green):
https://youtu.be/gkM7hOcl95o

DESCRIPTION:
The 8 Note Handpan in F Minor "Akebono" scale, which is most popular amongst handpan players, has a slightly different approach to the traditional pentatonic minor scale in that it creates quite a mysterious and wondering sound. The one and a half octave range whose lower and upper range have a distinguishable gap between them (perfect fourth Db to Gb) brings greater emphasis to its lower and higher notes.
The 8 Note Handpan plays beautifully and has some beautiful, resonant sounds. The smooth coating makes it very comfortable to play and feel while it weighs only 5kg, making it very easy to carry.

TUNING:
The first three notes outline an augmented F minor chord which creates quite an open and expansive sound. The middle Db really stands out, creating another mood and adding tension and excitement to the preceding notes. The final four notes (Gb-Ab-Bb-C) outline a whole tone scale which further adds to the mysterious sounds of this handpan. Although the Akebono tuning sounds quite peculiar, some strangely effective tunes and harmonies can be made when jamming on the 8 Note Handpan in F Minor and most handpan videos are done so in this key!

ADDITIONAL INFO:
The Handpan comes with a firm case with shoulder straps and also a head cover to protect it during transport (see pictures).
All 8 notes of the Handpan have a lovely resonance but players can also use the other surfaces of the drum to make some effective harmonics. You can also use the head cover to make some similar percussive sounds. Overall, the Handpan is a beautiful instrument capable of charming all users and listeners. Players are advised to only use their hands when playing these instruments as excessive force or beaters can potentially cause damage.

7 NOTE HANDPAN IN G MINOR PHRYGIAN + Carry Bag and Protective cover included
The Brand New 7 Note Handpan in G Minor, the perfect smaller handpan for anyone wanting something a little less large but which still is capable of charming its listeners.

SPECIFICATION:
Notes: 7
Colour: Grey or Black (by request)
Dimensions: 24 x 54cm (height x diameter)
Key: G Minor Pentatonic / Phrygian scale: (G3), C4, Db4, E4, F4, G4, Ab4.

Video 3 (in Blue):
https://youtu.be/yE0Abyqmw9A

DESCRIPTION:
The 7 Note Handpan in G Minor is the smallest and lightest handpan on offer, and for this reason, probably has the closest resemblance of all handpans to a Tongue Drum, without sacrificing the original tones, notes and body shape of an original handpan. Despite only being 3cm smaller in diameter than its handpan siblings, the compact size makes it a lot more efficient to carry, both in and outside of its shoulder bag. The 7 Note Handpan has incredible resonance thanks to its original handpan height of 24cm and the Gu hole size of 9 cm. Although limited to 7 Notes only, this is plenty for enjoyable improvisation sessions, especially with its in G Minor:

TUNING:
The G Minor Pentatonic in the Phrygian scale is actually a very intriguing one. In fact, the Phrygian scale on this 7 Note Handpan is altered slightly so that it resembles more that of the Klezmer scale, which draws ties with traditional Hungarian and Gypsy music. The gypsy-like scale really brings the performance to life, alluring to feelings of being outside with nature and on some kind of journey.
The 7 Note Handpan is definitely the best go-to option for anyone wanting a handpan that has a more comfortable size, reduced cost yet still an impressive sound. Despite being competitively subsidised in cost, the 7 Note Handpan in G Minor is perfect for any beginner but also any professional handpan player wanting to explore the intricacies of this very special scale.

ADDITIONAL INFO:
The Handpan comes with a firm case with shoulder straps and also a head cover to protect it during transport (see pictures).
All 7 notes of the Handpan have a lovely resonance but players can also use the other surfaces of the drum the make some effective harmonics. You can also use the head cover to make some similar percussive sounds. Overall, the Handpan is a beautiful instrument capable of charming all users and listeners. Players are advised to only use their hands when playing these instruments as excessive force or beaters can potentially cause damage.

PART 1

The standard 9 Note in D Minor are the most popular, since its pentatonic scale is most common across most world cultures and very natural to people's ears. It is also one of the largest drums with the most notes so lots of people prefer the extra 9th note which adds some further improvisation and range of notes.


The Celtic 9 Note in D Minor is the exact same size and number of notes as the standard D Minor handpan except for its scale which is a lot more adventurous (given its A#/Bb third note whose semi-tone difference from the previous A really creates some extra tension which the standard 9 Note D Minor can't really compete with.

Please continue to PART 2
PART 2

The 8 Note Handpan in F Minor is the same size as the 9 Notes but just has one note less. The F Minor is a different note, but also a different scale to the previous handpans as well, so you get a completely different playing experience. These were second most popular before I introduced the 7 Note Handpans in G Minor:


The 7 Note Handpans in G Minor offer a great alternative for price yet still with a pleasant scale, despite being only 7 Notes. The 7 Note Handpan is 54cm in diameter whereas the bigger ones are 57cm which is another reason why people prefer the smaller handpan.

For any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

It takes approximately 11 days to produce one handpan, and then a further 9 days on average to ship to you, potentially sooner depending on your location. For example, we have had customers from the US and Australia have their handpans shipped and received within 4-5 days although the expected delivery time is up to 9 days.

For any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,
David
Most of the time, yes! NovaPans tries its best to offer Handpans way below the market value in order to deliver some of these gorgeous instruments to those of which are most desperate. I myself know how it feels to long to touch - nevermind play! - a handpan and so I really want to provide as many people as possible this same opportunity of relief and revelation.

For this reason, NovaPans not only offers high quality handpans for low prices, but it tries to sell as many as possible at one time in 'Batch Sales', as a way of being able to be cost efficient by producing many. So if you are looking for a further discount, please do check out the latest 'Batch Sales'; the latest one can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/4793518
Yes, absolutely!

If you order more than one handpan then I will happily offer you a 5-10% discount off your total order.

Further still, if you refer a friend, I will offer a 5-10% off both of your orders.

Or are you interested in purchasing a lot more than 1 or 2? If so, please contact me for further details.

Kind regards,
David
Although there is no proper way of doing this on Etsy, I happily accept customers to make their payments by instalments. However, their handpan will not be shipped until payment has been received in full.

The way this has been done before has either been via PayPal or direct bank transfer.

Please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

Kind regards,
David
We could, however, as long as the scale of interest isn't too complicated, particularly in comparison to the scales which we already have. The majority of our custom orders are slight deviations of our original handpans which you can see here on Etsy.

Please don't be disheartened though, even if it is an E Minor Mixolydian scale on a Red 8 Note Handpan with your own engraving of a small piglet with your best friend's initials on it because we'll be very keen to try our best!

Kind regards and please don't hesitate to contact me for further information!

David

P.s. No one has asked for the E Minor Mixolydian scale on a Red 8 Note Handpan with an engraving of a small piglet with their best friend's initials.. yet!
The traditional colours and BLACK and GREY. Although as of 18th August 2017, we now also offer RED (see pictures here: https://www.handpans101.com/product-page/7-note-in-g-minor). By September 2017 we also plan to introduce BLUE.

For any questions please don't hesitate to contact me!

Perhaps you're also interested in an engraving? Please see the FAQ 'Engravings?'
Engravings are available for an extra charge of $30 USD / £24 and come in the following two sizes:

1. 4x4cm

2. 3x3cm

Engravings can be placed anywhere on the Handpan except for the notes or too close to the Gu (underneath) hole.

Engravings come in either black or white, depending on the colour of the handpan so that the engraving best appears. Engravings can be any symbol or text as long as a photo/sketch/diagram is provided.

Please don't hesitate to contact me further should you have any questions.
NovaPans is currently looking to expand into Tongue Drums and Cajons.

If this is something you might be interested in then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us early on!

Kind regards and Happy Handpan playing!
