Spacedrum® - The Handpan according Metal Sounds
SPACEDRUM®, the intuitive handpan, is a metal melodic instrument inspired by the original steel drum (aka the steelpan) and by the Hang® invented by PANArt® in 2000. Metal Sounds' handpans have been designed and handcrafted in France, since 2006. Metal Sounds was the first handpan producer in France and creator of the mutant concept with a 13 note chromatic stainless handpan. Also the handpans are available in different sizes. Constant innovation and developement is Metal Sounds' mission still to this day !
As everybody’s requirements, tastes and desires vary, Metal Sounds offers these 3 lines of handpans:
- The Spacedrum Evolution® is handmade from stainless steel, after our extensive improvements and hours of hammering we now offer the 5th generation of this handpan with its unique reversed note layout, with Ding as the first note on the scale. It is extremely easy to play, strong and powerfull with a sustained resonance. This is the perfect handpan for music-therapy or relaxation.
- The Spacedrum Nitro® is handmade from nitrided steel and gives a totally different sound to the Evolution®. This type of handpan or pantam is designed for musicians, percussionists and everybody who wants to groove to the music. The sound is soft and round, while the tones are precise and offer a choice for all percussive technics, when either played soft or dynamically. The Spacedrum Nitro MASTER PIECE expands the possibilities with additional notes on the bottom of the instrument.
- The Spacedrum Travel® handpan is made of stainless steel, a small size designed for young people, travellers, and those who work in schools or specialised environments. Easy to carry, lightweight, ergonomic, non-corroding and fully disinfectable in seconds.
