STEP 1: BOUNDLESS MANUAL VESTIGES
Look, it has endless hammer marks! These are hand-tuned Handpan Drums.
* No clear borders.
* The sound pit has hammer marks.
* Hammer marks are different for each Handpan Drums.
* 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.
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

HLURUHigh-end C Level Upgrade Space Grey Handpan Drum Kurd D Minor 22 In 9 Notes
A Represent Instrument By The Principle Of Helmholtz-resonator.
As very newly-developed musical instruments, handpan drums do not require complicated musical theory or any rudiments of music.
Hand-beating molding. High-quality hand dish drum, Stainless Steel quality, durable.
Circular hole at the bottom - Designed on the principle of Helmholtz resonator, and also used for tuning.
Accurate intonation, clear overtone, empty tone. All notes have perfect resonance vibration each note checked with a tuner minimum possible fluctuations.
The handpan drum is a tone composed of fundamental, fifth overtone and octave overtone.
STAINLESS STEEL ALLOY - High-end
Stainless steel has recently become quite popular in the construction of handpans for several reasons.
Firstly, a handpan made from stainless steel will generally have notes (tonefields) with more sustain (they will ‘ring’ longer). This characteristic lends a stainless steel handpan towards a more meditative and slow style of play.
Second, strong anti-rust.
Third, the feel of the handpan while playing is also noticeably different as well. When striking the notes, it is apparent that the stainless steel is not as robust as nitrided steel and thus feels less ‘springy’ under the hands of the player.
Fourth, the tone is brighter and softer.
9/10 NOTE DESIGN (KURD D MINOR)
9 Note - Sound zone surround distribution
PRINCIPLES: Helmholtz resonator principle
Kurd Scale - DING/D3 A3/bB3/D4/F4/A4/G4/E4/C4
There are eight notes on the drum surface, the center point is the basic note "DING", and the remaining seven to eight notes are distributed around. There is a hole in the center of the bottom for the bass "GU" which can be used for tuning.
Tone: Fundamental + Octave Overtone + Fifth Overtone
Each tone of the hand disc is composed of a fundamental tone + an octave overtone + a fifth overtone. That is, hitting a sound pit and producing three tones at the same time, the harsh treble is an overtone.
The hardness of the steel plate after nitriding and quenching is higher, and the overtone is brighter.
The upper part has 9 sounds, the center point is the basic sound, and the remaining 8 sounds are distributed around.
The bottom center has a hole for the bass "GU" which can be used for tuning.
Since this series of products are purely handmade, the production procedures are cumbersome and the production speed is slow. Therefore, a few styles may be out of stock, so the delivery time will be delayed, and the delivery time is postponed on the basis of normal transportation. Please be aware.
Due to the shooting light problem, the color of the real object may be slightly different from the picture, please understand.
Depending on the local climate, temperature and humidity, irregular maintenance is required.
For example, the southern region is humid and the maintenance cycle is 7 days. The northern region is drier and the maintenance cycle is 15 days.
Note: Only with proper maintenance, Handpan Drums will not suffer from rust, out-of-tune and other problems, and can continue to present an ethereal and melodious sound.
01. After receiving the Handpan Drums, firstly use alcohol to wipe the surface of the Handpan Drums to remove the dust on the surface of the Handpan Drums. At the same time, it can disinfect and clean the Handpan Drums and prepare for the subsequent maintenance steps.
02. Observe whether the Handpan Drums is rusted. If there is, please purchase rust removal oil to remove rust and clean the rusted parts. If not, it is not necessary.
03. The Handpan Drums should be cleaned after rust removal. Sewing oil is recommended for maintenance. When Handpan Drums has uneven color and lack of luster, use sewing machine oil to wipe it. Long-term maintenance can also prevent rust and reduce noise.
The scales on the front of the Handpan Drums can't be squeezed by external forces, and the scales should be placed flat to face up, so as not to press the tongue position and cause inaccurate pronunciation.
When placing the Handpan Drums in the backpack, the bottom should be aligned with the side of the strap to avoid misplacement and squeezing the front scale.
At the same time, Handpan Drums should not be placed in the backpack for a long time, and attention should be paid to maintaining ventilation.
The most important thing is not to drop or smash it seriously, so as not to cause deformation, running sound and other phenomena.
