The handpan is an absolutely beginner-friendly instrument where percussion and melody meet. Playing the handpan creates soothing, spherical and long-lasting soundscapes that completely captivate both the player and the listener. Neither previous experience nor knowledge of music theory is necessary, because all the tone fields on the handpan are on a fixed scale. With most models, it is not possible to strike dissonant notes, i.e. notes that sound "wrong". Therefore, you can follow your own intuition while playing and lose yourself in mysterious, dreamy melodies after only a short time. With a little practice, of course, more complicated rhythms, captivating chords and two-part melodies are also possible. A handpan is just as suitable as a solo instrument as it is for playing together with other handpans or other instruments such as tongue drums, guitar or percussion.

Sela Harmony Stainless Steel Handpans are completely handmade, perfectly tuned and made of a stainless steel alloy. Handpans made of stainless steel have a much longer sustain than models made of nitrided steel and are therefore particularly suitable for slow, relaxing and meditative playing. At the same time, they are very easy to clean and well suited for beginners, as their fast, sensitive response requires less effort to play. Sela Harmony Stainless Steel Handpans have a matt gold finish, which gives them a noble, high-quality look. Sela offers the largest selection of different scales in this category.

The D Sabye tuning (fundamental frequency 440 Hz) has an airy, happy, dreamy and at the same time uplifting sound character. The central note in the middle of the handpan is D3, around which the notes G3, A3, B3, C#4, D4, E4, F#4, A4 are arranged in a circle. The Sabye scale was made famous by the Polish composer Frédéric Chopin, so this tuning is very popular in Polish folk music and classical music. Particularly practical: an overview of the scale with the individual tone fields is lasered onto the underside of the handpan.

Each Sela Handpan comes with a bag made of tear-resistant nylon fabric, which, thanks to its good lining, provides optimal protection during transport. It can be carried either by hand with the two handles or comfortably as a backpack with the adjustable shoulder straps. A practical outer compartment offers enough space for small accessories such as a metronome.
