The “Hang” its a percussion instrument with melody invented in 2000 by PANArt, an evolution of the steel pan.
Family name: “Hand Pan”.
It was produced by the two inventors, Sabina Scharer and Felix Rohner, in a limited production in Bern.
Since 2013 they stopped producing the “Hang”.
In a few years time the instrument went through various developments and I’d like to think that the research is not finished yet. A few companies have already been inspired to reproduce it.
About 80 makers are estimated, around the world, till 2015.
So lets see what the future will bring!
It is very difficult to buy a “Hang” these days because of the huge difference between supply and demand. Here the latest news from PANArt: The Call of Iron.
