The Pro-Series Handpans are HAPI's highest quality handpans. Perfect for recording artists or anyone looking for perfection. They have an extremely tight tuning tolerance (within 0 - 3%) which allows the note harmonics to overlap and share frequencies. These handpans also have HAPI's smoothest and most polished finish.

El Capitan Scale (derived from D Minor). The top note is D3. Side notes from lowest to highest are A3, C4, D4, E4, F4, G4, A4. This instrument has a beautiful bloom, the top note excites the side notes into ringing. This increases the harmonic tones. The bottom Udu tone is tuned to F2. The bottom shell is tuned to E5. The El Capitan Scale has a very low top (ding) note which adds bass to the scale. This very deep sounding note adds contrast and plays off the high notes very nicely. There are many overlapping harmonics throughout the scale which help produce an amazing robust sound.
All the notes are tuned with a fundamental, octave and fifth harmonic for a rich sound.
Made from heat treated steel. Hand worked, and carefully tuned with a strobe tuner. This handpan is made with thousands upon thousands of precision hammer blows. Please allow for maker marks in handmade instruments like this. It is part of the normal process in the hammering and tuning, each one is made by hand by me (Grahm Doe, in Oakhurst, California) and is unique.
Handpan Dimensions: Measures 21 inches across (33cm), 9.5 inches tall (24cm). Weighs only 8.5lbs (3.85kg). Fits comfortably in the lap for playing. There is a custom made rubber ring around the side of the handpan to help protect the instrument.
Included is our FREE handpan hard case. Made from durable nylon with padded foam. It has an easy carry handle. Simple to open and close with our unique rubber latch system. The handpan shell and tone fields do not come in contact with the hard case. This creates an ideal buffer zone around the handpan. The handpan is supported by its outer edge (rubber ring).
