Handpan 9 Note in F Hijaz 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.

Tuning aspects:
The Hijaz has been one of the more popular scales in the handpan community for quite some time now and although it took us some time to catch on, NovaPans now has its own range if Hijaz models to offer. The Hijaz is particularly interesting because of its sharpened/flattened notes which deviate the scale from its original natural arrangement of the notes, making it sound, like the Celtics, more ambivalent, adventurous and sometimes mysterious. Have a listen!

All Generation 1 Handpans come with their own Soft Case (with shoulder straps), and protective cover (for added protection during travel but which can also be used as an additional percussive instrument). If you're interested in getting a Hard Case for your Handpan, see what we have available in the Shop here. All handpans come with a Gu hole (for resonance) and a nitrided coating for anti-rust.


Further Information: All notes of the handpan have a beautiful resonance which when played with a little practice, can be tamed in a matter of minutes to less than a few days.

Have patience if finding the sweet spot when playing your handpan doesn't come immediately and be reassured that over 500 other NovaPans customers have been empowered through handpan playing and watching our handpan tutorials.
