This Spacedrum® has 9 tones. Its Hokkaido scale starts with a F#3 and ends on C#5, then it's the largest range of all the Spacedrum models. Greater than conventional models 8 notes, with a diameter of 60 cm, it can play on notes with remarkable bass.

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 its little brothers.

This scale does not change the arrangement of notes and can play alternately as the other models in 8 notes.

Thanks to a long research & development work in partnership with an engineering high school we’re happy to release the 4th generation Spacedrum®, made out of a special stainless alloy. The properties of this special alloy are particularly adapted for the outdoor playing: totally rustproof, even in the extrem climates (see shores, tropics...), hard enough to keep the tuning for years (in normal conditions of use). Added to that, the Spacedrum® Evolution (4th gen) develops more sustain and more sound volume while respecting the Spacedrum® original sound.

This instrument is fragile and needs to be protected when it's not played. Our bags are 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.
