Got this gem this morning.

Hello Chad,
naysayers and skeptics of all times never were able to recognize the dawn of a new era. I think you will shut up not until all your friends will play one of our revolutionary MePan 1.0.

Teddy King
CEO Handpans for Sale

Hahaha Michael that is him. In an email he explained where his stage name came from a nod he said it was because he was an Elvis impersonator! His real name is Edward König.


Well, everything else is fake, so...

I hope he is better at impersonating Elvis than someone who just created a 3D printer which, "...makes it possible to design any specifications you want for your handpan with a computer program and then print the instrument with a modified 3D printer within a time of only 18 hours." I would find it easier to believe that he is the real Elvis, he faked his death and has been living in Germany ever since making a meager living impersonating himself. :giggle:

This scam really takes the cake. Just when I thought I had seen every way unscrupulous people could try to take advantage of handpan enthusiasts, somebody has to come along and up the ante. :roll:

Oh by the way, I just invented a DNA-based self-assembling handpan utilizing organometallic precursors of my own design. Based upon the combination of starting chemicals and DNA scaffolding, I can guide the handpan to assemble itself into any sound model by any maker with any desired combination of sustain, timbre and tone. :lol:

Mr King, this one's from The King ;)

You ain't nothin but a hang dog
Lying all the time
You ain't nothin but a hang dog
Lying all the time
Well, you aint never sold a handpan
And you ain't no friend of mine

When you said they were 3D
Well, that was just a lie
When you said they were 3D
Well, that was just a lie
You ain't never made a handpan
And you ain't no friend of mine

Oh, mudman; no need to laugh at yourself - unless, of course, that laugh is one of utter delight at your huge success with this design and capabilities.

You'll soon be able to put gegahost, tzevaot, sagittarius, and the Big Ten completely out of business; nobody will want to buy any of those pans, once they see yours.

Comments from behind the curtain: I could have said, you're competing (successfully) with me for an ability to post total and utter nonsense - HOWEVER, gegahost has simply taken the cake and edged out absolutely everybody. There's no way I personally can see to best that particular nonsense.

We'll have to be extremely careful with 3-D printers, and make SURE to prevent them from taking over the Universe entirely. I think the trick will be to alter THEIR DNA enough to cause anything they print to disintegrate 3.14 hours after being printed.

We need a DEADpan and a LIVEpan smiley. Lino?

Just popping in to say thanks for bringing this to our attention. We have no affiliation with this website. We have never negotiated, nor even been in contact with this person.

And in case you truly want to laugh today, many of you even have your own "quote" on his site.

http://handpansforsale.gegahost.net/?page_id=177
Aaron Ximm (Helpdesk Pantheon Steel):
Kyle Cox and Jim Dusin experimented with 3D printing too in the beginning. But this techique wasn’t good enough at that time. Currently there are plans at Pantheon Steel to produce the batch 5 Halos with the new 3D printing method.

c_logan (handpan.org forum member):
Good luck in your business practices you will need it if this is how you do business.

Curt Ceunen (handpan player):
When I saw it on Facebook I thought that Handpans for Sale is just another “flipping company”. But the MePan convinced me, that Teddy King’s work is an excellent contrubution to our community.

Davide Swarup:
I’m proud that Teddy King asked me to become an endorser of the MePan.

Fernando Alvarez (compraventahandpan.org):
Si ustedes destruyen mi vida y mi empresa con sus COBARDES comentarios también les destruiré las suyas, dedicare mi vida a buscarlos y hacerle pagar por esas canalladas. Llámeme a mi teléfono yo si doy la cara, COBARDES.

Gerald (site owner of handpan.org):
If the MePan is as good as announced, we will open a MePan House on handpan.org very soon.

Kelly Hutchinson (Hang Out UK organiser):
Teddy King will lead a workshop on MePan printing and MePan playing on this year’s Hang Out UK.

Manu Delago (hang player):
MePan will give me the opportunity to play on 10 or 15 instruments simultanously.

Mark Champion (3D printing specialist):
Teddy King understood that engineering is an artform.

Michael Colley (administrator on handpan.org):
MePan? I’m so pissed off! All this announced crap calling itself instrument but sounds like shit!

Michael Paschko (administrator of hangblog.org):
Mark Champion didn’t understand the Hang years ago and Teddy King doesn’t understand it today. But I am not astonished that the handpan story ends this way.

Lino (Linotune developer):
I am proud, that Linotune became a central part of Teddy King’s brilliant MePan printing software.

Rusty James (Handpangea organizer):
I knew that we would hear from Mark Champion again.

Spike Finch (Creator of Zen Tambour):
Now I know this is a joke!

Teddy Amkie (Tzevaot Handpans):
We will cancel our own venture and will become a shareholder of the upcomming MePan Ltd.

Teddy King (CEO Handpans for Sale):
I’m very happy that I found Mark and we were able to start our revolutionary new venture together.

Victor Levinson (SPb Maker):
These new printed handpans have nothing to do with my work, because my instruments are not handpans.
