Great Value for the Price!
Strix, 20.10.2019
I've only played handpan once before buying this one but I really loved the experience. However, it was much more expensive brand/model, way beyond my budget. So I was wondering if I could enjoy playing a cheaper one as well and in the end I decided to give it a try with basically one of the cheapest handpans I could find. And let me say upfront I'm really glad I did!

Compared to the high-end UFO shaped handpans, it obviously doesn't offer the same tone richness and variety but it's still a lot of fun and it's a great instrument to just help you unwind and relax with its pentatonic tuning as you don't have to worry about hitting false notes - there aren't any. This makes playing the handpan very accessible even for a non-musician.

One thing you should know is that this type of handpan is harder to play with your hands/fingers than the more expensive ones - it's definitely possible but you need to learn the proper technique and even then the sound tends to be quieter compared to using the (included) mallets. Speaking of the mallets I was little dissapointed to find out that their handles are made of white plastic which feels really cheap and I'm seriously thinking about replacing them with wood as soon as possible. At least they work and make playing easy from the start...

Still, I find using my hands much more enjoyable and after about only 2 hours of practicing (just experimenting, didn't really look up any tutorials) I can already say that I'm quite happy with the tones I can produce. One thing I'm curious about is whether I'll be able to use this handpan for a really relaxed way of playing as so far I feel like the choppy/snappy hand movements required to produce a reasonably loud and crisp tones are preventing me from fully relax. This is something that is definitely easier with the high-end handpans as they react nicely even to gentle taps. Then again, I think that with enough practice I can learn to relax even while doing these rather fast hand movements.

Anyway, I'm happy with my purchase! I like that this handpan is easy and safe to carry around - it's quite small and light, it feels sturdy and is shipped with handy travel bag. The sound is decent, definitely acceptable for the price. A great introduction into handpans, I'd say. If you're wondering whether you'd enjoy playing this kind of instrument and you don't want to invest a fortune to find out, this is a really good and affordable way.
