Best Handpans For Beginners
The Best Handpans for Beginners Definitely Not the Cheap Handpans
If you're looking for cheap handpans they are very rare, if they do exist at all. Because each of these exotic musical instruments is unique unto itself, methodically made by hand to the high standards of its creator, it can take weeks, if not months to produce it. When this much work goes into the act of creating anything unique, be it a designer garment, sports car, or gourmet delicacies, it never comes cheap. But it's more than simply a matter of supply and demand, the artisan behind it deserves to be paid for his painstaking time-consuming work. For this reason, there are no such things as cheap handpans. Having said this, expect to pay between $1,000 and $3,500 for your first handpan. The good news is handpans hold their value so by the time you're ready to buy a second handpan you can do some new beginner a favor and sell the first to her.for at least what you paid for it.but then, if you're like most of the handpan community, you'll keep it for yourself.
But more about the best handpans for beginners - I'd suggest you first watch several of the many videos made by handpan players. This way you can see how the different manner in which a handpan is assembled accounts for the scale it produces which will in turn help you decide what sounds you want to produce and which handpans produce it.
As for learning to play, you don't need to have any experience playing another instrument, nor do you need to be able to read music. It's largely a matter of learning as you go. And since each handpan is tuned to one particular scale, you don't have to worry about playing a wrong note. So even if you never dreamed of calling yourself a musician, you will be once you get your handpan. Just don't go looking for a cheap one.
