But the creativity has at least an ounce of merit.

+1!

I have been also impressed concerning the skin on the underside - I thought of taking a stable frame for the skin & combine it with the upper shell of a Gubal or a Double-Ru :D

No there wouldn't. But it's a matter of attitude. Considering selling these junk cans is laughable. And if he did not call these instruments "handpans" and allowed us some space to consider them for their own percussive/industrial sound, we might not be that harsh. But he's selling his trashed attemps at hammering shells glued together and call them handpans... and as handpans we must agree that's by far the worst failure we've ever seen. The devil lies in the details...

PS. There are notes on the side of the bottom shell and in my opinion the skin hides a hole caused by a massive crack around the ding while hammering what once was a top shell... In fact I think every hole or cut in these pans were originally cracks.

I think he is serious
this is his sales pitch...funny and sad


Cosmic Blue Handpan Handcrafted in Chicago. Made out of 2 55 gallon steel drums by hand. The bottom is covered with African goat skin. Check out video on youtube to see this Handpan in action!

THIS IS NOT A HANG DRUM!!! IT IS A COSMIC BLUE HANDPAN!!! MADE BY HAND!! FIRST ONE EVER MADE!!! IT SOUNDS DIFFERENT THAN A HANG DRUM!!!! IT PLAYS AND TAKES YOU ON JOURNEYS! YOU CAN SEE THE VIDEO TO HEAR EXACTLY WHAT THIS DRUM SOUNDS LIKE! IT TOOK MONTHS TO FINISH AND IS THE RESULT OF MANY TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS!!! WEEKS OF TESTING, TRYING DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES.

Go to youtube, search windstruck didgeridoo and its the Sub-Marine Handpan! Thanks! THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS IS! NO REFUNDS

Nope, I've weighed it on my daughters creativity scales, and the outcome is well, less than an ounce!! :sulk: :doh:

According to my 7yr old daughter, she has more creativity in her little finger when junk modelling, than this creator of 'Frankenpans' has in his entire body!!!! :giggle:

please keep it civil. You can say the product is bad without making fun of people. It is these kind of comments that turn people off from on-line forums.
