Hand-Crafted Dii Handpans
The handpan, or hang drum, was first created in 2001 by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer (PANArt) in Bern, Switzerland. The musical instrument is hand crafted from two half-shells of steel sheet connected together at the rim, which leave the inside hollow to create the shape of a convex lens.
The top (“Ding”) side has a center note hammered into it and seven or eight tone fields hammered around the center. The bottom (“Gu”) is a plain surface that has a rolled hole in the center, which activates a Helmoltz resonator (a deep bass note created by the empty space inside the handpan). As a handmade instrument, the handpan is many times viewed as artwork as well as a drum that has magical resonating properties.
Soothing, resonating, and enchanting, the sound of the handpan captivates and works great for sound healing, meditation, and yoga, as well as for developing skills in playing a percussion instrument. Every note on your handpan should be fine tuned, with overtones that give each a rich, layered quality.
