At the beginning the tongs are very hard to play by hand. I think that this is because the metal is new thus metal structure is quite rigid. I use rubber mallets to play it for a few days then tongs are more flexible. Sounds is not that clear, deep and loud when playing with hands comparing to rubber mallets. I hope that tongs will be more flexible later.
When using mallets, sounds are beautiful. I treat it like a set of 9 drums and play it as I feel thus I am not able to replay any of them. For me, I use it to release stress as a musico-therapy instrument. Love it.

I am thrilled to receive this extraordinary instrument. These handpans have always touched a deep part of my soul and I thought what better way to give back and nourish my inner journey than to create music with one of these. Whata beauty! The craftsmanship is detailed and precise. Thank you ravvastofficial. (: I love it.

What a gorgeous instrument. I became enamored with this drum after learning about handpans and doing a little research online. I am so looking forward to learning to play it. The sound is amazing.
The drum was securely packaged and delivered in perfect shape.
Thank you for putting your instruments out into the world for people to enjoy!

So I finally received my rav vast, it took a month to go through the customs, so if you are in a hurry... be patient. Also, be aware that in Belgium, custom taxes are something like 130eur so that's definitely something to consider when you buy these.
Apart from these financial and logistical downsides, the rav itself is really amazing. The sound is incredible, the sustain is so long, almost too long if you want to play fast... it's probably better suited for a meditative kind of playing. All things considered, it's a very different experience from playing a handpan, but I like it!

Beautifully crafted! Love both the way this steel drum plays and looks!
Fun facts about RAV origins from the RAV creator, Andrey Remyannikov
It all began just like with many other makers with a steel barrel and a hammer on Andrey’s backyard. But the manufacturer itself was born in Andrey’s garage. He came there every day after work and spent his all spare time to make instruments. About 1-2 RAVs a month.
Andrey tries about 100 options before he came up with a famous form of RAV tongue. It is now patented.
Vast is the name of the second generation of RAV drums and Vast was created only a year after the sales started. By the way, RAV is the abbreviation for Andrey’s name - Remyannikov Andrey Vladimirovich (as if no one knows that).
It was a real challenge for Andrey to start selling his instruments and he only ventured with the help of a psychologist, who made him believe in himself and his creation.
It’s funny, but there are very few people in Russia who know about RAV. In the first year of sales, only 2 RAVs were sold in Russia, while the other 15 instruments traveled to their new owners around the world.
Andrey has no music background and he almost does not play other musical instruments. He speaks of himself as an engineer. His engineer education and understanding of the physics of sound made our renowned enormous sustain a dream come true.
