Try out one of the handpans used to create Jacob Cole's debut album, Destiny, available now on iTunes!

The handpan is a new generation of hand hammered steel instruments which came from the original inspiration called the Hang, invented in Switzerland in 2000. Handpans are now handmade all over the world, but they are still very new and rare. They are tuned in different scales and are great for meditation & yoga.

The scale of this handpan is: D / A Bb C D F G A

Pretty good

I didn’t hear anything at first, like it wasn’t working. But then I closed out of the app a few times and opened it, and put it headphones, it finally started making sound. So yeah it’s good if you might want to get a Handpan and just want to play around with one and get to know how they work. So then if you DO find yourself in the presence of a real one, you won’t be totally lost. The notes help too.

Usable in a pinch.

Having a hand pan app is an awesome thing however in this case the recommendation to wear headphones sets one up for a disappointment with the digital click with each touch. There is also a minute latency when playing, I would guess between 5-7 milliseconds, but just enough to hamper ones enjoyment. I have owned a couple hand pans, first a Halo, and now a harmonic and when not around my pan, I would prefer playing nothing over the instrument. I don't care at all if the background changes color(that's kind of silly), but what would be awesome and incredibly useful is if the user could change keys/pan turnings. It is a free app so I would say download it, but just don't get your hopes up that it is in any way a substitution, or honestly much more than a novelty.

Simple and fun for a quick play

I’m not here to write handspan songs, so I think for wha it is it’s great and my 2 year old son likes it too. Kind of which you could have alternate tunings but that’s fine. The color changing feature for very time you tap it is nifty but very overwhelming when you play fast or my son spams the screen. Otherwise I love the sound and the ease of playing.
