    STEP 1: BOUNDLESS MANUAL VESTIGES

    • Look, it has endless hammer marks! These are hand-tuned Handpan Drums.
      • Handmade
        • * No clear borders.
        • * The sound pit has hammer marks.
        • * Hammer marks are different for each Handpan Drums.
      • Machine Pressing
        • * The sound pit is flat and smooth.
        • * Clear boundaries.
        • * No hammering marks.

    STEP 2: 3 TRUTHS FOR QUALIFIED HANDPANS

    Look at the three truths that will lead you to identify excellent Handpan Drums.
    Handpan Drums is known as "one of the high-frequency instruments on earth", and the sound is very unique. Let me show you the three truths of high-end handmade Handpan Drums.

    • 1. Stainless Steel Thickened Handpan Drums - Long-lasting intonation
      • The thicker and harder the Handpan Drums are, the more consistent they are in keeping their intonation. Compared with the regular thickness of 1.0mm, HLURU Handpan Drums is thickened to 1.2mm, which is more difficult to make, and the effect of maintaining intonation is better and better.

    • 2. Manual Hammer Zone (Boundless Tuning) - No breaking sound or muting
      • Tuning techniques and methods directly affect the sound quality.
      • The surface of the hand-tuned sound area is uneven, and the tightness of the sound area is finely controlled, so that the volume is balanced, and there will be no mute or broken sound, and the overall sound is ethereal.
      • *Machine-made Handpan Drums are molded at one time, without adjusting the tightness, the volume of Handpan Drums is not balanced enough, which can’t be compared with hand-made Handpan Drums.

    • 3. Special material wrapping - It has the effect of sound collection and makes the overtone clearer
      • The special craftsmanship and material of the edging can assist the sound collection, reduce the dissonant resonance, make the overtone clearer, and the reverberation more pleasant and agile.

    STEP 3: IDENTIFY WHETHER HANDPAN DRUMS IS EXCELLENT BY TIMBRE, SUSTAIN AND OVERTONES

    • Hand-made tuning zones to make high-end Handpan Drums sound, sustain and overtones even better. When choosing Handpan Drums, these three aspects are very important.
    • Hand-made Handpan Drums - The pitch reaches the international standard <±5 cents, which can meet the needs of professional performances.
      • * Handmade Handpan Drums:
        • Tone: Ethereal and Pure
        • Sustain: Long and Melodious
        • Overtones: Clear and Transparent
      • * Machine Suppressing Handpan Drums:
        • Tone: Dull and Empty
        • Sustain: Continuous Mute
        • Overtones: Faint

      • NITRIDED STEEL - High-end
        • Nitrided steel is what the original sound sculptures, invented around the year 2000 in Switzerland, were made of. It provides a very unique and robust feel to the steel. In short, the nitriding process hardens regular steel by diffusing nitrogen molecules into its structure.
        • The high hardness and increased tensile strength of nitrided steel lends itself well to percussive playing, and those with heavy handed playing styles.
        • The advantage of timbre and etherealness is added during the nitriding heating process, which makes the steel harder and maintains long-term tone.
        • Special nitriding steel material, the tone is relatively deep and calm, features more ethereal and warmer drum sound.

              ABOUT NITRIDED STEEL

              • 01. Hammer marks, scratches.
                • This is the trace left by the maker when tuning by hand. High-quality Handpan Drums are all tuned by hand hammering, leaving slight hammer marks and scratches, which is a normal phenomenon.

              • 02. Nitrided Handpan Drums have nitriding marks and may show uneven color.
                • In order to keep the sound of HLURU Handpan Drums ethereal, we have adopted a more pure thermal coloring technology, which is easier to leave unique marks than ordinary painted Handpan Drums, which reflects the professionalism and ingenuity of handcrafting.

              • 03. Rust
                • This is normal for nitrided Handpan Drums. If you can't understand and accept the rust of Handpan Drums, please buy the rust-proof Dazzling Gold models.

              • NOTE: In order to prevent rust, Nitrided Handpan Drums requires frequent rust-proof maintenance. For details, please refer to the relevant detailed instructions.

                MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
