The SPACEDRUM EVOLUTION® is a Stainless steel handpan made handcrafted by Metal Sounds in the South of France
The stainless steel alloy combined with Metal Sounds' method of manufacture makes the Spacedrum Evolution® a truly unique handpan. Using 1.2 mm stainless steel sheets for the top shell, the note shaping is specific to this instrument's line and the shells are welded together. This combination of elements gives the Spacedrum Evolution® its unique acoustic character.
It's is a handpan with a powerful sound and very rich in harmonics, whose shaped curves provide excellent ergonomics of play and easy transport. Its main assets: it is very easy to play, the tuning is stable, its maintenance is limited with perfect protection against rust (stainless steel) and its design is resolutely modern. The Spacedrum Evolution® line comes in 3 sizes with diameters of 48 cm, 55 cm, and 60 cm. The number of notes ranging from 6 to 13 depending on the models.
SPACEDRUM NITRO® – Nitrided handpan
The latest creation of Metal Sounds, the Spacedrum Nitro® is a really versatile handpan! Here the construction method is based on oval notes and dimples (buttons) shapping and the shells are glued together. Most importantly, the steel sheets of 1.2 mm are treated for better resistance to shocks and corrosion (nitriding). The Spacedrum Nitro® combines all the qualities required of a high-end handpan with a good dynamic range and a balanced sustain. The crosstalk (resonance of the notes between them) is well controlled and the harmonics are easy to play. Also, the percussive sound produced by the player on the side of the handpan (Tak) is clear while the Ding note stays deep and rather short. Musicians will be able to appreciate the full extent of its possibilities and its unique sound...
