Rhythm and melody

The Sela Harmony Handpan D Amara 202 is an ingenious combination of percussion and melody instrument with which harmonious, spherically sustaining sounds can be produced even without prior musical knowledge thanks to the fixed key, which provides only the correct notes. It consists of two thin stainless steel bowls that are shaped by hand and then assembled. On the top is the playing surface with the sound fields, and on the bottom there is a resonance opening in the centre. The manufacturing process of the Sela Harmony Handpans is extremely complex, as the tuner has to work on the sound fields with a hammer and tune them exactly to the specified note, with each tuned area affecting the tuning of the other fields. The stainless steel processed in this way offers optimum resonance vibration for long sustain.

With intuition and gut feeling

Handpans are not only made by hand, but also played by hand. The small dome in the middle of the Sela Harmony Handpan D Amara 202 produces the lowest note (D3), also called the central note. Further to the outside are eight other sound fields arranged in a circle (A3, C4, D4, E4, F4, G4, A4, and C5), the sequence of notes of which follows a zigzag pattern from the player's point of view. All notes are on the bright-sounding D minor scale. The sound fields can be played by tapping or striking with your fingers or the ball of your thumb, and they respond sensitively and clearly to the slightest touch. Depending on where you hit the sound field, you can also create partial tones and use the "empty" areas between the tone fields for percussive accents. Handpans are usually played while seated and placed on the legs. Separately available stands allow you to play while standing and use several handpans at the same time.

As simple as a pan-cooked meal

The Sela Harmony Handpan D Amara 202 indeed has its price due to its complex production; nevertheless, it is by no means only suitable for professional musicians. Even beginners with no knowledge of musical notation can quickly coax fascinating soundscapes from this instrument thanks to its simple, intuitive use. And with a little practice and the right playing technique, complex rhythms, two-part melodies, and chords (e.g. Dm7, Dm, C, F, and Am) are also possible later on. There is something meditative and spiritual about playing a handpan. Their sound is soothing, somehow mysterious, and simply captivating. Apart from your own hands, only a little gut feeling is needed here to completely enchant the listener.

Sehr gute Handpan
Minimitschi 08.06.2021
Der Klang ist sehr gut, ich bin völlig begeistert. Das liegt aber vielleicht auch daran, dass ich total auf den warmen Klang des Edelstahls stehe. Die D Amara klingt in sich sehr stimmig und die Töne sind auch von der Lautstärke her gleich. Den Test mit dem Metronom besteht sie mit voller Punktzahl. Beim Grundton D3 schwingt bei stärkerem Anschlag das A4 mit, jedoch habe ich das eher wohlklingend als störend empfunden. Ich werde mich trotzdem für eine D Kurd entscheiden, da ich mit dem zusätzlichen Bb mehr akkorde spielen kann. Aber das muss jeder für sich selbst entscheiden.
