Handpan by HAPI.
D Minor 10 note: D3 G3 A3 Bb3 (Bottom C4 D4) E4 F4 G4 A4.
This handpan has all the notes found in the D Minor scale. Bb (B flat) is the signature note of D Minor and it really adds to the introspective vibe of this scale. C and D are located on the bottom of the handpan. They are positioned where they are easiest to strike when playing through the scale. Their position also encourages harmonic sharing with the top notes. It takes a little extra practice to get good at striking the bottom notes. When playing only the top of the handpan you will get a meditative sound with all the low notes. The high notes will build a nice contrast to the low notes when desired. We are very happy with how this scale turned out and we are sure you will enjoy it. It also features 3 pairs of octave notes in D3 D4, G3 G4 and A3 A4. This makes for a very harmonious sound with lots of harmonic sharing between these notes. It is super easy to make beautiful patterns with the scale right away!
Our handpans have held the tuning very well over the last few years and the vast majority have not needed a retune. When/if the day comes that you may need a retune (accidents happen) your first retune is free. Shipping costs to and from our shop in Oakhurst, CA are not included. Please allow around 1 week for service.

Made from heat treated steel. Hand worked, and carefully tuned with a
strobe tuner. This handpan is made with thousands upon thousands of
precision hammer blows. Please allow for maker marks in handmade
instruments like this. It is part of the normal process in the hammering
and tuning, each one is made by hand (by Grahm Doe, in Oakhurst,
California) and is unique.
Handpan Dimensions: Measures 21 inches across (33cm), 9.5 inches tall (24cm). Weighs only 8.5lbs (3.85kg). Fits comfortably in the lap for playing.
There is a custom made rubber ring around the side of the handpan to help protect the instrument.
Included is our FREE handpan hard case. Made from
durable nylon with padded foam. It has an easy carry handle. Simple to
open and close with our unique rubber latch system. The handpan shell
and tone fields do not come in contact with the hard case. This creates
an ideal buffer zone around the handpan. The handpan is supported by its
outer edge (rubber ring). Fits inside our optional armored backpack for the ultimate protection.

- Oh MY!!! I was literally on the edge of my seat all day and now it's finally here! My new instrument! Grahm, THANK YOU so much for all of your hard work on this amazing instrument. I cannot wait to learn how to play. It's absolutely gorgeous, it sounds beautiful and has an amazing bloom, WAY better than I could have ever hoped for. Thank you thank you thank you!!!
- I have never been happier with any instrument before. It seems to have
the ability to sync with the primitive mind, allowing for an almost
immediate ability to play, regardless of musical background or
experience level. It is not just the mesmerizing sounds you hear that
make it so joyful. There is a component to it that you physically feel;
reverberations of a therapeutic and soothing quality. It is a true
work of art in all ways; a beautiful masterpiece.
- I am extremely pleased with the Hapi Handpan. This is a great pan, and
the sound and resonance is absolutely great. I am still learning its
particular playing techniques due to the individual work of sound art
that it is. I own and have played many others, and your pan is the one
that I will use for creative meditation. The sound is open, and all
notes are evenly matched, and well in tune. The entire Handpan is very
pleasing visually, and the craftsmanship is very high. I will purchase
- I am delighted to tell you my Hapi Handpan arrived this morning. Thanks
for the great service. It came so fast from when I placed the order to
when it was in my hands. You packaged is so well, too, and it arrived in
perfect condition. It looks and sounds beautiful. I am so pleased and
look forward to playing it often for my own contemplative enjoyment and
for the deep relaxation of students at the end of my yoga classes.
Thanks so much for all your dedicated, hands-on learning and labor of
love that have gone into making this instrument. I have already been
playing and loving three Hapi tongue drums, and this handpan brings my
appreciation and potential for meditative musical expression into
another wondrous dimension.
- It arrived safe and sound! Sounds amazing, just as good as any handpan I
have heard on the internet! Thank you very much. Your creation will be
heard by many people and I will be sure to tell them where it is
from...thank you again.
