Handpan 9 Note in A Phrygian Minor


The 9 Note in A Minor is one of NovaPans’ most versatile handpans, with a choice of notes that are almost compatible with every scale (usually, one handpan has to be played in only one scale). Despite having so many notes, the scale naturally resolves on the A3, hence why we call it an A Minor. With the added adjacent note, A#3, players can enjoy the added sense of suspense and adventure in their improvisations while still being invited into singing the glorious notes of the higher F, G, and A4s. A particular specialty of this handpan is that by playing on the upper segment of each handpan note players can immediately triggure the harmonics of each note, without needing any additional technique. We’re very excited to be introducing the 8 Note A Minor in Crystal Blue and for a record price!

Tuning Aspects
The 9 Note in A Phyrgian Minor actually has derivation of D Minor since its tonic Ding note is a D.
