Watch Demos of 4 Different Tacta Handpan scales:
Tacta Handpans are made from stainless steel, as opposed to nitrided steel that other makers use, which results in a longer sustain (the notes ring out for a longer period of time). All Tacta Handpans come in the gold/brass color seen here in the photos.
The handpan or “hang” is a convex steel drum played with the hands and tuned with multiple notes. Each handpan is tuned to a particular scale such as major, natural minor, harmonic minor, hijaz, mixolydian, etc. Sonically the handpan is an overtone-emitting instrument that has the capacity to create many layers of sound and ethereal effects and works very well with drone instruments. Originally called the hang (pronounced “hah-ng”) the handpan was invented in 2001 by a little company in Switzerland.
