It has finally arrived. My new handpan is here. Just in time for Charlie to hear it before he has to go offshore. It is Easter and I am off outside to play in the goat pen. The Oberhasli Dairy goats and Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGD) seem to be fascinated by the music.
I took this out of the box and started playing like we were old friends. This pan was made for me and both of us know that. This is such fun. The sustain and tone of this pan is beautiful. So ethereal and light and pure tones.
I have a few short clips of me playing that day in the barnyard. The Easter barnyard concert.
I have another clip where even the LGD dogs came to visit.
I really did enjoy playing for them that day and found it so easy of an instrument to play. The sounds and notes were beautiful and the resonance very nicely balanaced.
I have a few new photos of it. The hard case is a lovely sage green. I just love them both!
