People are getting confused. There were two different listings. One was blatantly a scam, the other is not.

Hi Guys,

I am new to this Forum and I am looking to buy my first handpan. (Very excited) ! :) I have narrowed my search to either Innersound or ECS ( Ithink ECS since I believe they are the manufacturer right?)

Soufis was the innersound handpan you said that you have tried coated with any lacquer or not please?

The reason I am asking this is because I know there are two versions of the Innersound / ECS handpans: lacquered or Not Lacquered. And I am not sure if I should purchase a lacquered one or not. I have read here that some coated ones have had some rust problems underneath the lacquer and this ofcourse could not be treated, whilst the ones which are not lacquer coated can be treated with Froglube or something similar at the first or before any signs of rush of rust.

Also I have been told that any paint on the handpan my decrease the sustain of the instrument ?

any guidance on this would be gretly appreciated please :)

Thank you

I met someone at handpangea that had one with lacquer. The lacquer was chipping and he was keeping it sealed with nail polish. If one area developed a problem, what is stopping other areas from developing problems? He wished to remove the lacquer and just use froglube, but the makers offered to do this using sandblasting, and the owner did not want such an aggressive treatment. Plus, he would have had to pay shipping to have this work done.

My recommendation is to get one without lacquer and instead use froglube to protect the steel.

Thanks for your answer. Would it be possible to remove the lacquer with paint remover, then apply any rust treatment to any rust and protect it with froglube? would the paint remover damage the instrument? (I dont think so)

I would guess you are correct, but I don't know of this being tried.

I would think it would not do any harm as paint remover is widely utils ed on various type of metals even vehicles and sometimes even left on the surface for long stretches not to leave the metal bare, before cleaning off the paint remover and applying any treatment etc...

i dont know if it would be effective on hardener type paints which are more difficult to remove. If someone can provide some input here? :?:
