Characteristics imparted into every Celestial Sound Handpan

Our instruments are made using DC04 Nitrided steel imported from Europe, and they are supplied with the highest quality and most versatile case, the EvaTek from Hardcase Technologies in Italy. We build to two sizes, the standard 53cm diameter and the latest 50cm "Aki" line, not including the <1cm flange. This allows us to maximise the scale offerings and provide for the different needs of our customers.

 

Our range of notes is always increasing as we push the boundaries constantly. Recently we managed to successfully expand our thresholds to as low as A2 and as high as F#5, and we're still going! We've managed to place low B2 notes on the bottom shell and create instruments with as many as 17 notes in total, with tuned shoulder tones and ports.

Literally every part of the instrument is singing in harmony!

Celestial Sound Devotion

We are devoted to building the best instruments that we possibly can, no expenses saved. But it doesn’t stop there. We take even greater pride in seeing their journey as they express themselves in the many hands playing them around the world. And as such, it is imperative that our customers are well looked after so that in turn, our instruments can be too.

Timbre - The sound of water drops on a ceramic plate.

The timbre is intended to be more ceramic than metallic, with a very rich texture to each tone and overtone.

 

Sustain - An expressive and clean resonance.

The sustain is intended to be just right, not too little so that the notes topple over, but also not too much so that the notes don’t drown each other and turn to mush.

 

Dynamic Range - From thunder to lightning.

Dynamics are an important thing when using music as a language to express. From the responsiveness within each note to the isolated dead areas in between, there is plenty to explore on each instrument.

 

Aesthetics - Like a sculpture uniquely crafted in time by the elements.

Each instrument is treated with the utmost respect to facilitate its birth into life, with particular efforts to enhance each shells’ natural beauties. Celestial Sounds are easily identifiable from afar!

 

Balance - So fine it is palpable.

Each tone, each frequency, the volume, sustain, and the overall ease of playability is very delicately massaged to ensure that there are no overbearing qualities but rather, it is all working together in unison, evenly, and with a sense of guidance.

 

Ease - Love me and I will play for you.

Our instruments are made with the intention that each and everyone will find value in playing them. From beginners finding it easy to excite the notes to the more advance finding there to be a seemingly never ending realm of exploration.
