Sela

Description

The Harmony Handpan D Amara SE205 is the perfect combination of percussion and melody instrument. It consists of two steel bowls that have been hardened (nitrided) in a special process. This is how the instrument gets its structure. As part of their manufacturing process, the halves are then elaborately hammered by hand. This creates dents and a small hill in the middle of the body. These surfaces become the various sound fields. The central note is located in the middle and is surrounded by a circle of eight further notes.

The Sela Harmony Handpan has a bright, long-lasting sound. The unique, soft, ethereal and mysterious sound of this instrument is captivating. The soothing sound takes the listener on a spiritual journey with its pleasant timbre. It's perfect as a musical accompaniment for spiritual activities such as yoga or meditation. The sound fields respond easily. Even the smallest nuances can be heard while playing, resulting in an expressive and detailed performance.

The Sela Harmony Handpan is professional tuned. It impresses with quality and sound on a high level. The handpan has a pleasant resonance vibration across all tones. It immediately convinces with its long-lasting sound. The tones are cleanly separated from each other, which prevents crosstalk.

The Sela Harmony Handpan is ideal for beginners as well as professional musicians. Its nine notes lie on a common scale. Despite the intuitive and simple playing technique, fascinating sound patterns can be created with the Sela Harmony Handpan. This allows every player to experience a sense of achievement in no time at all. The soundscape ranges from simple to complex. The player is offered inexhaustible possibilities: complex rhythms, virtuosic melodies, captivating chords or two-voice melodies can be combined in many ways.

A high-quality and padded bag is included. Thanks to its padding, it provides optimum protection during transport. The tear-resistant nylon bag can be carried easily by hand with the two handles or comfortably as a backpack with the adjustable shoulder straps. Small accessories such as a metronome can be stored in the practical outer compartment.
