I live in the mountains of Boone, NC. I first came across the handpan in 2007. It took me 4 years, but I was finally able to buy my first one in 2011. After purchasing a second in 2014, I began to seriously consider taking up the hammer myself. In March 2015 I found a steel barrel, beat it to a pulp, and began a 5 year journey that led me to where I am today. Purchasing a handpan can be a significant investment, but I have found from personal experience that owning a quality crafted instrument of singing steel has a value beyond price. My goal is for everyone who chooses to buy my handpans to be fully satisfied with their instrument. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions or concerns!
