How do you MAKE a handpan??

How do you MAKE a handpan??

How DO you make a handpan?

We got to go behind the scenes with our friends at Metal Sounds the South of France to find out!

...turns out the answer is a LOT of care, craftsmanship, heaps of hammering, laser-cutting, patience, and good ears (along with high-precision tuners!)

We put together this video showcase for Metal Sounds and can't wait to share it with you...

Metal Sounds:

A Showcase of Passion, integrity & quality!

In this video you will get to:


-GO behind the curtain at the Metal Sounds workshop in the South of France to see how they build the Spacedrum handpans and Zenko tongue drums 
METAL Sounds
-EXPERIENCE Metal Sounds in action with incredible recording artists  like Canada's quirky and eclectic band Walk off the Earth
-BE IMMERSED in passionate musical compositions that combine the unique sound of Spacedrum hanpans with classical music ensembles
