Description

       Our Luna model handpans are becoming better and better!  The new Luna "Clarity" model Handpan is now being produced with a new improved clear finish.  The sound and appearance is incredible!  We are very pleased with the sustain and sensitivity of this instrument.  The durability of the finish is also a plus.  It resists weather and environmental conditions better than any finish we've used before. We encourage you to listen, play, and enjoy! The scale is Caravan scale has the following 8 notes: (D) A C# D E F G# A. This scale has an interesting middle eastern sound.  The Luna model is tuned by David Beery and/or Dii team tuners.  The Luna is a great choice for handpan enthusiasts of all levels.

  • Tok Tone scale on the bottom shell: C# D E F# G# A C#

TOK TONES are a new and unique set of notes that have a short, percussive sound and add rhythmic and melodic options to a handpan performance or recording. The Tok Tone notes can be tuned to a variety of scales but are typically tuned to the familiar Integral scale pattern, however, in an A major / F# minor scale, and without a Ding note: C# D E F# G# A C#. Tok Tones are tuned fairly high compared to standard handpan notes on the top side. They do not tend to interfere with the resonance of the top handpan notes.  Tok Tones are fun to play! They have a very active tone and can add spice to a dance song or a rhythmic jam with other percussion instruments. Two instruments on one!

Joyfully developed by David Beery at Dii laboratories. :)

Handpan is a term for a group of hand made sheet metal musical instruments resulting from a growing worldwide interest in the Hang, an instrument invented and built by the company PANArt Hangbau AG.  A handpan is an instrument that is similar to a steel drum, but it is played in a sitting position and the notes are struck with your hands rather than with mallets.

Dave's Island Instruments owner, David Beery, fabricates and tunes his own line of handpans.  Several models have been produced in the last four years.  The first model that was produced by Dave and sold via Dave's Island Instruments was named Genesis.  The Genesis handpan was made from 55 gallon barrels (similar to how steel drums are made) and had a variety of finishes including powder coating, nickel plating, and brass plating.  The next model Dave created was the Symphonette.  The Symphonette was much smaller than the Genesis model.  It was made from 35 gallon barrel lids and had finishes similar to the Genesis model.  In 2014 Dave began using mechanically deep drawn steel shells and developed the 20" GAIA model handpan.  The GAIA model handpan was tailored to look and sound like the original PANArt Hang and utilizes nitrided (heat treated) steel to enhance its sound.  The GAIA is now the premiere line of handpans that is sold though Dii.  Recently, a new model has been developed.  The Luna model.  It is made from the same materials as our GAIA handpan, but the Luna steel is not nitrided. It is a plain steel handpan instrument that has been highly praised by our customers.  Customers have said they enjoy the warm tone that the Luna creates. Dave is also a co-creator of an instrument called the Ohm (patent pending).  The Ohm is a hybrid instrument that incorporates vibrating tongues along with traditionally tuned handpan notes.  The combination of the two produces a magically new and novel sound.
