The handpan Spacedrum Hokkaido scale starts with a F#3 and ends on C#5.
With 9 notes this model is aimed both at experienced musicians, as conscious people play on a handpan offering deep sounds and vibrations. It can be put on a stand or on your laps despite it's a bit larger than regular handpan size.

This Spacedrum is the latest of five generations of Spacedrum Evolution. This handpan is treated and protected against all corrosion, even in extreme conditions. The stainless steel used, is harder than that of the DC04 and DC05 models, allows for durably, maintains the integrity of tuning, and gives extra solidity to this instrument. The sound range is well respected while the improved sustain (duration of the sound) and overall louder volume are evident.
With its double DING, the lowest note (in the center) delivering a duller bass tone, and allowing for more proficient playing. Coupled with enlarged DIMPLES to optimize the overall balance, this polished new Handpan offers a more luxurious design, reflecting its great quality.

The layout of the notes of the Spacedrum Evolution is inverted compared to that of other handpans such as the Spacedrum Nitro for example. Here the Ding is played with the right hand and we continue the scale up by alternating left and right hand. See above the diagram of the notes or download the manual.

This instrument is fragile and needs to be well protected when handled or shipped. The supplied bag is specially designed for a good protection of the Spacedrum.

    Je possède mon tout premier handpan spacedrum HOKKAIDO 9 notes depuis 4 mois et je n'ai pu en jouer qu'une vingtaine de fois. D'abord esthétiquement il est très beau. Il a une belle sonorité apaisante et agréablement douce. Lorsque l'on a bien compris la finesse du jeu de mains pour obtenir une bonne technique de frappe, d'abord il faut être détendu ce qui vient ensuite en jouant comme par magie, il faut avoir de la souplesse de poignée en ayant aussi un léger poids dans la frappe mais surtout en donnant un bon rebond en visant les bords des cratères en utilisant les deux doigts de l'index ou du majeur. Plus j'en joue, plus je trouve de nouvelles combinaisons dans le jeu de mains, c'est un instrument qui se prête très bien à l'improvisation où on se sent libre dans la gestuelle et le rendu sonore. Je m’entraîne essentiellement à mains nues mais avec les baguettes spéciales le jeu est aussi intéressant avec un son plus percussif. Le sac à dos de transport fournit protège bien l'instrument. Le fabricant METAL SOUNDS est vraiment sérieux dans la qualité de sa production mais aussi dans les relations de ses clients. Le magasin revendeur attitré DJOLIBA de Toulouse a la possibilité de montrer et essayer certains modèles handpan SPACEDRUM et tongue drum ZENKO en plus des conseils donnés. Je le préconise vivement aux musiciens ou pas et chacun trouvera sa propre technique de jeu.

    I have this instrument since 3-4 months now. It’s not easy to play it if you have never played an instrument before, but I guess that’s up to the talent (and the time) of the person. It comes with a backpack witch make it easy to take around for small travel, unfortunately to bring it in the air plan you will need to purchase another one…where? I’m not sure I’m looking for. But in the end is a great instrument for ambient and chill time music.
