The Spacedrum Atlantic'O has 8 notes arranged on a 60 cm diameter. Its scale starts with a D3 and ends with an A4 and allows the use of note surfaces providing deep basses.
New Spacedrum Evolution is the fifth generation of stainless steel Spacedrum. Made of a special stainless steel alloy, the instrument is indefinitely protected against the effects of corrosion, even in extreme weather conditions. In addition, it is harder than conventional steel, which prolongs the tuning performance over time and its structural strength. The sound range is respected and the gains in sustain and sound volume are obvious.
With a polished Double DING, the central note now emits a more matt sound, and allows a more percussive playing compared to the previous generation of Spacedrum. The diameters of the DIMPLES (buttons located in the center of the notes) have been increased to further improve the overall balance of the instrument. Like the ding, the dimples are polished and give this new model of Handpan a sober and luxurious design, reflecting its quality.
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.
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.

Maintenance tips for your handpan :
Wipe your instrument with a soft microfibre cloth after each use.
To care for your handpan remove the removable rubber profile and apply wax or oil to the entire outer surface of the instrument (top and bottom) about once a month with a microfibre cloth. Also remember to clean your instrument with alcohol 2 to 3 times a year to remove the deposit due to successive applications of wax or oil. Do not leave your handpan in its case and store it in a dry and ventilated place.
