Born from a desire to get handpans into the hands of those that might not otherwise be able to afford them while not sacrificing sound quality, the Beginner Series was created. Made from the same untreated low carbon steel as the Azure Series, the Beginner Series instruments sound just as good as their cousins, maintaining the same note stability and tone quality because they are also hand shaped. The Beginner Series instruments are also coated in a hydrophobic microceramic coating, helping boost their corrosion resistance. To help lower the cost, the Beginner Series instruments have a slightly different construction process and may have some aesthetic defects such as silvery marks or scratches.




Saving Time



By selecting scales that  have only 7 notes in the tonecircle and sufficient space between the notes, the time spent shaping is cut down dramatically. Typically, the shells are polished before heating, a step that helps the coloring of the shell happen more evenly. On the beginner series instruments, this is not done.


TRIm the rim?




When Auras are near completion, the flanges of the instruments are usually trimmed and ground down to ensure that they are even and smooth. Instead of doing this on the Beginner Series, each instrument will come with a rubber ring to cover and protect the flange.



While tuning or shaping untreated low carbon steel that has been colored with heat, areas can sometimes get discolored and reveal the original steel color underneath. On the Azure Series instruments, these areas are heated once again to bring them back to their original color. On the Beginner Series instruments, this step is not taken.


The Result




Cutting out these steps may leave some aesthetic defects, but doing so saves us time and allows us to offer a series of instruments that are significantly cheaper while maintaining the sound quality of our higher end models.
