The “Hang Drum”

Pan Drums, or ‘hand pans’ are a very recent musical invention. First developed in the year 2000 by Swiss company PANart ( the Hang or Hang Drum), their melancholic sound bewitches everyone that hears it.
But, because a pan drum must be hand built and tuned by skilled artisans if it is to sound good, supply is short and they have remained relatively rare and extremely sought after by musicians.

The instrument family of handpans is relatively young.
The PanArt Hang was invented in 2000 in Bern, Switzerland by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer. It is related to the Steeldrum from Trinidad and the word “Hang” means “hand” in Berndeutsch.
As the name suggests, the hang is usually played with the hands and fingers. It has a central note which is called the “Ding” and there are 7 or 8 tone circles around it.
The bottom side of the Hang is called the “Gu” side, and it can be played in a percussive way, similar to an Udu, or Ghatam drum.

Although the term “hang drum” is frequently used, according to the makers, the hang is not any kind of drum or hand drum. One reason for this distinction is the fact that when hit too hard, the
hang can easily detune.

Dante Bucci is a fixture in the Philadelphia music scene and one of the most-recognized Handpan players in the world, thanks to over 9 million views on his YouTube channel (youtube.dantebucci.com).
A relatively new invention, the Handpan (a.k.a “Hang Drum”) is a melodic, inverted steel percussion instrument born in Switzerland. The Handpan looks like a steel drum crossed with a UFO, and has its own distinctive voice that draws comparisons to bells, harps, and even synthesizers.
Dante embraces the Handpan’s meditative tendencies while simultaneously combining insistent melodies with deft percussive strikes. He creates distinct, compelling songs, sometimes playing two at once to create a layered, polyrhythmic sound.
