The Sela Melody handpan D Kurd is a masterfully handcrafted percussion instrument that produces a hypnotic array of tones. This handpan features a durable, corrosion-resistant nitrided steel shell with eight notes laid out in a circular formation, each tuned to a specific pitch in the D Kurd (440Hz) scale for a melodic quality. The notes have a resonant, sustained tone that lingers beautifully. An included padded carry bag allows for easy transport and storage.

Produces Eight Notes in the D Kurd Scale

With eight notes tuned to the D Kurd scale, the Sela Melody handpan allows musicians to create engaging melodies and rhythms. The notes range from D to A (D3/A3, Bb3, C4, D4, E4, F4, G4, A4) which have an exotic, Eastern-influenced sound that is perfect for meditation, relaxation and creative expression.

Handcrafted Steel Shell for Rich, Nuanced Tones

The Sela Melody handpan features a handcrafted nitrided steel shell that produces a wide range of tones with subtle nuances and is resistant to corrosion. It has a resonant quality that allows each note to ring out with a long, lush sustain. The steel shell is also finely tuned and retuned by hand to achieve precise, harmonious notes.

Includes a Padded Carry Bag for Easy Transport

A padded nylon carry bag is included with the Sela Melody handpan, allowing for convenient transport and storage. The bag has thick padding, durable nylon construction and an adjustable shoulder strap for maximum comfort. It is perfectly sized to hold the handpan snugly in place during transport while still allowing easy access. The carry bag helps keep the handpan safe from scratches, dings and weather when not in use.
