Announcement    NovaPans has come a long way since it first began providing the most affordable, high quality, and quick delivery handpans on Etsy and anywhere else back in August 2016. That's two years of now, 570+ sales, and even more online messages, phone calls, videos, free tutorials, deliveries, emails, meetings, gatherings, jams, and a much else! And in absolutely honesty, I've enjoyed every single bit of it!

Our top reviews on Etsy and elsewhere speak for themselves, but our team at NovaPans are incredibly proud and fulfilled that we have been able to please so many individuals, families, musicians, previous non musicians, all people alike! So we would also like to thank those which have believed in our project as much as we did and whom, after purchasing their own handpan, realised that they too had made the right decision.

Without any further ado, here are our NovaPans Handpans videos:

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to NovaPans!

Hello Everybody! My name is David and I'm a graduate of Music from the University of London area. When I'm not busy playing musical instruments, I'm busy making them - and with a passion! I fell in love when I first came across the original Hang Drum online during my exam revision for College back in 2014. I immediately wished I had one, not only to escape the exams but all sorts of other stress and worries. I found that from just listening to the Hang I was always able to cleanse my mind thanks to its beautiful overtones and resonant notes. And then I tried to buy one…

Well, I was shocked to discover that Hangs or 'Handpans' were sold at extortionate prices! I looked for alternatives but still, if it wasn't a handpan that was poorly tuned and aesthetically unattractive, it was the standard handpan being sold for upwards of £1200 / $1600 - and these were just standard models! My goal was to change that. Now, along with a team of musicians and musical instrument manufacturers based in Europe and Asia, I manufacture and organise affordable, quality and quick-delivery handpans worldwide. The production process involves the team purchasing the relevant resources, shaping them to the specific dimensions and sizes of the handpans requested and then tuning the drums (which is what I specialise in). I also help transport these instruments, sometimes by carrying them as personal items back from Asia or by getting them specially sent over to the UK/USA. I once only used to listen to these beautiful instruments to relax and transcend from one world to another, but now I play them and can assuredly say that these are by far the most inspiring musical instruments I have ever played (and I play several different traditional instruments).

We now have our little business which helps to promote access to these unearthly instruments and whose profits help continue the development of these handpans. Etsy seemed the most genuine and professional medium of advertising these very special instruments and I'm sure the community of handpan and other music lovers will appreciate the fantastic service we are offering!

For the latest news on handpans, models, colours, personal requests and future discounts, please add me to your favourites and I will keep in touch! Or please don't hesitate to message me here directly. Other services I can offer are: custom made handpans (tuning, size and colour), collection/delivery of handpans in London (or East Sussex) and handpan teaching services and tutorials.

All handpan videos can be found in this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYI1FVXIcRY&list=PLVS8PJJ-7g4hzSzm7E-pSw_Xvc7SkB4Wv&index=1

Thank you!

Frequently asked questions
What's the difference between the 9, 8 and the 7 Note Handpans you offer? PART 1

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

What's the difference between the 9, 8 and the 7 Note Handpans you offer? 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.

Kind regards,
David

How long does it take for a 'Made-To-Order' Handpan to be delivered from when I order it?

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

Could you offer me a discount on my Handpan?

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

Can I get a multiple-order discount? Or a referral discount?

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

Can I pay by instalments?

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

I would LOVE for you to create my own custom handpan. Could you?

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!

What colours do you offer?

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?

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.

Do you sell any other instruments or will you?

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!
David @NovaPans
