About this project

Hey Kickstarter,

     This instrument is called a handpan. Chances of getting one today? Slim-to-none. Each handpan is hand-crafted and hand-tuned. Due to this rigorous process, this takes a LOT of time yet only a select few are talented enough to craft this instrument.

The Plan:

Manufacturing the shells will provide our tuners with a perfect canvas which will enable them to focus on their talents and produce flawless sound in a fraction of the time.

The downside? This requires a large initial investment in tooling approximating  $50,000. Also, hand tuning, finishing treatments, special ovens for annealing, and many other final touches are required to perfect each piece and will amount to an additional $50,000. This procedure will roughly call for $100,000 to create this project and maintain a stable buffer to manifest this instrument. 

Where are we now?

We have our team of tuners with 20+ years of experience, engineered all our tooling drawings, and a ready working prototype. All that remains is to achieve funding which will turn the final wheel to getting this magical instrument to you.

Your Support:

I have done everything I can to make sure that I can deliver this magical instrument to you. I can only hope to be able to achieve the necessary funding for the tooling to begin this project.

Inspirational words:

Upon my first time showing my prototype, I will never forget the words told to me that day.

"This is so much more than an instrument. What this is, is the bond between a Father and Son. The craftsmanship, the sound, everything about it you can feel that it was built with something far beyond this world."

Thank you,

Toovya & Eliaju
