made by Mark Wilson

in Devon, UK

Our instruments are made from Ember Steel by Ayasa and shells are hydro-formed. 

Material is Stainless Steel or ​Nitrided

However, because we work and operate in a damp country and because stainless steel is more popular choice,

we do not store Nitrided materials in winter months, as they turn rusty very quickly, and make a batch or two in summer months.

If you are interested in Nitrided instrument - let us know and we will notify you once we have shells available.

Instruments are heat-treated in the manufacturing process and

the unique coloration is a result of temperature in the oven and duration of the heating.​​

We can't guarantee a specific colour.

At the moment we can't offer 18" size Instruments due to insufficient quality material.

*Impedance: A phenomenon occurring in handpans where, due to the diameter or depth of an instrument, certain pitches sound stifled or dissonant. This is caused by sound waves/frequencies that do not properly align when travelling through the shell. This can also be called phase shift, wave interference or phase cancellation. (

Instruments can be tuned to standard 440hz resonance and for beginners we would suggest that, because it would be easier to match up with other instruments and players if you play together..

However if the purpose of a handpan is healing, meditation, yoga music then some people choose 432hz tuning..

Here is an example of same scale instrument in 432hz and 440hz.


This is very personal choice, but for beginners we usually suggest to choose an easy scale like one of D scales..

For example D Celtic  or  D Minor. These scales would be easy to learn and also easy to sell if at one point you would decide to do so.

The last bit we would advise on, would be to check handpan in person or online lessons.. some tutors might offer a deal on instrument + lessons.. Here are some: Millie Hoddo; Dom AversanoMaster The HandPan


Often we get asked about best options for stands and cases and other accessories.

For cases we prefer Evatek Medium from Hardcase Technologies, but you might also like to consider Namana bags.

Popular stands are offered by Sounds Inspiring or Pantam Stand.


For complete beginners we usually advise to visit gatherings or gigs such as HangOutUK so you can listen to as many instruments from different makers and also maybe have a try yourself if possible.. If that option is not available then next best thing is YouTube..


However there are few more aspects for you to keep in mind:


Size of instrument 

Smaller 18" and also standard 21" size instruments. 18" is more preferred for younger customers and generally smaller people as it is easier to hold it on your lap and reach the further notes etc... or if you have back issues..

At the same time there are scale limitations for smaller instruments.. so you need to weigh the pros and cons on that.. and maybe consider stand instead of playing on lap..


Material of instrument

The option of Stainless and Nitrided Steel.. Stainless is a bit more rust resistant (but not 100%) and also a bit more hardy for wear.. if there is a chance that other people will interact with your instrument (like when you play in hospices or schools etc) then we would definitely suggest Stainless.. Also there is a difference in sound - Stainless has more resonance than nitrided - some people like it, some dislike..

Here is an example of same scale instrument in nitrided and stainless.



To keep your instrument happy - service it regularly, keep it dry and wipe it off after each and every handling. Protective oil like Phoenix (optional) can be gently rubbed into the steel, however, with time, build-up can occur and it will affect the sound of HandPan. Use small amount  and remove any excess and make sure not to press on notes. 
Once in a while we would recommend to clean surface of instrument with an alcohol solution - to remove any build-up and to prevent rusting. Avoid harsh temperature changes and damage like dropping, excessive banging or applying pressure on playing surface.​ 
​Always use an appropriate case for transportation and do not leave instrument unattended. Do not store your instrument in a closed bag overnight and for prolonged periods. ​Allow some air flow.​ ​It can trap moisture and advance corrosion and also can affect glue quality and sound.
