Harmonic Master® 15 

The Harmonic Master® 15 is the result of pushing the limits of high-quality, “mutant”-style handpan design with craftsmanship, innovation, and technology working harmoniously together. We think it is the best and most complete handpan in the world and a revolutionary instrument that changes everything. We created it to perform a full chromatic scale, including fifteen musical notes in a single harmonious handpan, and it is our most advanced musical instrument. The top and bottom shells keep the playing method remarkably simple, and each side allows the performer to play independent scales as well, which opens up a whole new world of sonic textures. With Harmonic Master 15, you can create any scale you want, and explore all of the harmonic possibilities of any music. 

The sound structure of the Harmonic Master® 15 is internationally protected.

Harmonic Master® 12

The Harmonic Master® 12 is the most studied evolution of our original handpan and the result of unparalleled innovation. We're delivering the same iconic Harmonic sound you've come to love, including a set of 12 musical tones-fields within a designated scale. The playing shell maintains the simplicity of our conventional design as the Harmonic Master 8. The bottom shell layout consists of 4 tone-fields, including one of them being ding-like with the triple dome design. It is an innovation with uncompromising quality for those who seek a meaningful sound and a large number of musical notes in an individual resonant instrument.

Harmonic HuRing®

The Harmonic Master HuRing® opens the potential of percussion, bass, and harmony, as a new area of musical possibilities. The bottom shell is compact and curved, designed with no opening port to generate the sound of the air in the vessel. The pulses of the Helmholtz resonance are surprisingly intense and can be used in a variety of musical styles. The result is equally powerful, yet uncompromisingly reinvented with a harmonious Ringding around the central opening tuned to partial tones, which represents a percussive challenge.
