Handpan 9 Note in D Pentatonic Minor | Generation 1


The Original 9 Note Handpan in D Minor uses all the notes of the pentatonic scale giving it a traditional sound and feel. The two octave range of 9 notes from D3-D5 is plentiful for extensive harmonic and melodic inventions. Standard Handpans typically have a smaller diameter, however, this handpan has a slightly larger diameter of 57cm which means the notes are not only more horizontal, but also more spread out.

The 9 Note Handpan in D Minor plays beautifully and has some beautiful resonant sounds. The smooth coating makes it very comfortable to play and feel while it weighs only 5kg, making it very easy to carry.
