Super sound. Note: very good

29.12.2016
In summary, I assess the Meinl Handpan Equinox with very good. The instrument sounds extraordinarily beautiful and pure. I would buy it right away.

First of all, this is my first hang-drum, actually I'm a bassist. The slope has it but for a long time done and now I was glad that you can buy a quite uncomplicated in the store.
After the comparison it was quickly clear that it would be Meinl. Their sound is very fine, pure and clear. The instrument can be played on the lap, so you have a nice connection.
The overtones are very good. When you press the thumb briefly (and somewhat more strongly) on the lower side of the sound surfaces, additional overtones are added. Very nice!
The Equinox has 8 sound fields and is tuned in a pentatonic E minor mood (EGHCDEG-Fis). Ie there are also nice major thirds like C major or D major. Actually everyone can play on the Meinl handpan, since nothing is wrong. The art is to create beautiful melodies with dynamism and feeling. Due to the drum character and the lack of inter-tones, it is rather patterns, which are combined to form complete meldoies. This is very meditative.

The construction itself: the Meinl handpan is colorless gray-brown (does not shimmer). It does not have a small bump in the center, just like the original. This does not bother you, because otherwise percussive sounds can be generated in other ways. Because of the small diameter it is well in the lap and you do not need a stand. However, it is slightly higher than other hang drums. I do not know if the small people (we are all over 1.70 m) is somewhat difficult with the accessibility of the tones on the far side. I guess that is not a problem, since the high tones (compared to the depths) also tapped up sound very overtone rich.

Included in the purchase is a pair of cloth gloves (maybe for the friends, who all want to play on it?), A steel plate cover (as protection during transportation) as well as a high-quality gig bag.

As I said, I am enthusiastic, play almost every day with it, very much entangle me and would definitely buy me again.
