All notes are: (D3), A3, Bb3, D4, E4, F4, A4, C5 and D5. The D3 to D5 provides two octaves of improvisation around the pentatonic minor but with a slight adjustment. Unlike the Akebono (8 Note) and Integral (7 Note) Handpans, the Celtic scale Handpan replaces the conventional 4th note of the pentatonic scale (G) with the 6th note (Bb) instead. The Bb3 is most effective because it creates a semitone difference with the A3, creating the urge to resolve which induces tension. This tuning particularly expands the harmonic creativity and expressiveness for the player despite it being only a slight adjustment.
All Generation 1 and 4 Handpans come with their own Soft Case (with shoulder straps), and protective cover (for added protection during travel but which can also be used as an additional percussive instrument). If you're interested in getting a Hard Case for your Handpan, see what we have available on our shop here. All Generation 1 handpans come with a Gu hole (for resonance) and nitrided coating for anti-rust.

We’re a team of active handpan manufacturers, quality testers, logistics, and teachers who have been innovating the handpan market since 2016. Our goal has been to meet the overwhelming cries of people to make handpans more readily accessible to the wider public. This meant reducing pricing while improving delivery speed while maintaining quality control. We’re proud to say that we now excel in each of these.
The community of handpans, new and old, have supported us with their 500+ orders, 70+ 5* reviews (on Etsy) and continue to collaborate with us on social media (Facebook) and through sales and handpan teaching worldwide. If you’re looking for a handpan, or at least to join the community, NovaPans Handpans is a good place to start.
