Sehr schöne RAV
Neander, 18.03.2019
Sehr guter Service und sichere Lieferung durch Thomann! Bitte nie ein Messer verwenden, um den Schaumstoff der Verpackung von der RAV zu lösen (in einem Youtube-Video habe ich gesehen, daß jemand das so machte.)

Die B-Kurd enstpricht der B-Celtic, hat aber ein G zusätzlich, dadurch mehr Klangmöglichkeiten (sie erhält dadurch den G-Dur- und e-Moll-Dreiklang zusätzlich). Der Klang der G-Zunge gefällt mir allerdings nicht so gut wie der der anderen, er scheint mir nicht so sonor, klingt nicht so lange nach. Auch sind die beiden oberen double ding Tonfelder für einen Anfänger nicht so einfach zu spielen, besonders A4. Das geht besser durch tapping als mit der Daumentechnik.
Dennoch sehr wohl klingendes Instrument, das ich wieder kaufen würde. Die B-Celtic minor RAV ist evtl. für den Anfänger leichter, aber die Kurd hat mehr harmonische Möglichkeiten, ist auf Dauer evtl. interessanter.
(Man beachte, daß B3-D4-F#4 bei der Kurd auf die Linke Seite nach oben verschoben wurde und G3 unten links "reingeschoben" wurde. A3-C#4-E4 befindet sich im Gegensatz zu B-Celtic nun rechts. D.h. man kann Stücke nicht einfach auf beiden RAVs gleich spielen, sie sind aber grundsätzlich von B-Celtic auf Kurd transponierbar.)

Très satisfait
PaulPV, 19.03.2019
Le RAV VAST est d?abord un très bel objet métallique, harmonieux dans ses formes et au poids conséquent. La réalisation est impeccable et la sacoche, livrée avec, est belle elle aussi et bien conçue. A cette première perception très positive s?associe un son profond, magique, avec un long sustain ... éléments qu?il faut ensuite ensuite domestiquer : une nouvelle aventure commence mais d?entrée de jeu plutôt gratifiante grâce à la beauté de l?objet et la richesse de ses sonorités ...

Allround Talent
RalGei, 26.07.2020
Eigentlich war ich auf der Suche nach einer Handpan, bin dann aber bei der RAV gelandet. Ich bin mit dem Instrument rundum zufrieden!

Positiv:
- Langer Sustain
- Sehr stimmstabil
- 10 Tonfelder (mein Online Teacher spielt auch mit 10, das macht das Nachspielen leichter)
- Kurd 9 ist für mich neben der Pygmy die schönste Stimmung
- absolut sicher für den Versand verpackt
- sehr gute Verarbeitung, ich bin mir sicher viele Jahre Spaß an dem Instrument zu haben
- viele Obertöne (können an verschiedenen Punkten "herausgekitzelt" werden, mit ein wenig Übung klappt das erstaunlich gut!)
- Sehr leises Spielen möglich, trotzdem mit Klangfülle
- Klingt mikrofoniert unfassbar gut!

Nachteile:
- recht schwer (2 mm Stahl)
- aufgrund der Dicke des Materials muss sie etwas fester angeschlagen werden, das war zunächst gewöhnungsbedürftig
- aufgrund der Dicke des Materials lautes Spielen eher schwierig, bzw nur mikrofoniert möglich

Es ist zwar mit dem Klang einer Handpan nicht zu vergleichen, hat aber ebenfalls einen sehr ähnlichen Reiz und man kommt einfach schnell ins grooven ...

Superou as expetativas
Redoxguru, 17.10.2020
A compra deste RAV Vast B Kurd superou as minhas expetativas! Este instrumento conquistou-me, quer em termos da sua sonoridade - calmante, bela e trascendente; quer em termos do seu design, construção e acabamento - perfeição dos cortes nas tongues, perfeição da angulação das diversas faces, esplêndido acabamento acetinado do metal do corpo e do aro.
O RAV Vast B Kurd é um instrumento que toco sozinho e também em família. Os meus filhos adoram tocar nele pela faciilidade de obtenção de som agradável. Qualquer pessoa consegue obter sonoridades agradáveis e harmoniosas, mesmo sem ter conhecimentos de melodia e harmonia, devido ao tipo de escala utilizado.
Este é um instrumento que permite criar ambiências quase 'mágicas', pelo timbre e sustain.
Ao contrário de algumas pessoas que preferem tocar com as mãos, prefiro tocar nele com mallets de feltro. Assim, não se ouve o slap da mão na superfície do RAV Vast (muito invasivo), mas apenas a nota produzida. Aconselho este instrumento a quem procura, de forma simples e descomplicada, produzir sonoridades agradáveis, mesmo de improviso.
