Yeah they are really amazing. The only problem is that there is about a 5-6 year wait to get one from the makers. Intense.... Each one of the dimples actually has three notes instead of just one like the steel pan. lots going on with these guys.

I had a Hank Drum.......Kind of a very cheap generic version of the Hang Drum. Fun little drum. I used it at a lot of gigs and my drumline borrowed it for a marching band show.

I sold it to a former student of mine about 5 years ago......and I miss it.

How much do they cost?
If you get it from the maker, anywhere from 2-3K. But that also means you would have to wait for years and years to get one and most likely have to go to a foreign country to pick it up when its ready. If you want to get one now you would have to get one off of ebay and that can go as high as 7-8K and then you can never get it tuned again. I have three but was lucky enough to get them before all the craziness started with them.

Hank drums are lots of fun but dont have nearly the same quality as the Hang or a HandPan. I actually make Hank drums although most call them "Tongue Drums" now. Serenemetal.com Mine are way different than 95% of the other tongue drums out there. Its a lot closer to the Hang or Handpan but still not even close to having all the awesome harmonics involved. However, there is almost no wait time and its way way way cheaper.

Tongue drums have cuts in the drum to make notes where as the Hang and HandPans are hammered into tune sort of like a steel pan. The handpans have three notes in each dimple, the root note, its octave, and the octave's fifth. You can actually isolate the octaves and fifths within each tone circle. This guy is a master at it and shows how to isolate the notes at around 42-44 second mark. check it out. you can also get the center "ding" to sing like a wine glass with vinegar.



I really wish I knew how to build the Handpans. hahaha Easy street after that.
