Hello Everybody! Welcome to NovaPans! If we’re not busy playing musical instruments, we’re usually passionately busy making them!
I fell in love when I first came across the original Hang Drum online during my exam revision for College back in 2014. I immediately wished I had one, not just to escape the exams but all sorts of other stress. I found that by just listening to the Hang I was always able to cleanse my mind thanks to its beautiful overtones and resonate notes. And then I tried to buy one. Well, I was shocked to discover that Hangs or 'Handpans' were sold at extortionate prices! I looked for alternatives but still, if it wasn't a handpan that was poorly tuned and aesthetically unattractive, it was the standard handpan being sold for up of £1200 - and these were just standard models! My goal was to change that. Now, along with a team of musicians and musical instrument manufacturers based in Europe and Asia, I manufacture and organise affordable, quality and quick-delivery handpans from the UK. The production process involves the team purchasing the relevant resources, shaping them to the specific dimensions and sizes of the handpans requested and then tuning the drums (which is what I help with). I also help transport these instruments, sometimes by carrying them as personal items back from Asia or by getting them specially sent over to the UK. I once only listened to these beautiful instruments to relax and transcend from one world to another, but now I play them and can assuredly say that these are by far the most inspiring musical instruments that I have ever played (and I play several different traditional instruments).
We now have our little business which helps to promote access to these unearthly instruments and whose profits help continue the development of these handpans. Etsy seemed the most genuine and professional medium of advertising these very special instruments and I'm sure the community of handpan and other music lovers will appreciate the fantastic service we are offering!
For the latest news on handpans, models, colours, personal requests and future discounts, please add me to your favourites and I will keep in touch! Or please don't hesitate to contact me. Other services I can offer are: custom made handpans (tuning, size and colour), collection/delivery of handpans in London (or East Sussex) and handpan teaching services and tutorials.
