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.
