One of the best entry-level handpans for quality, price and capability is the Generation 4. Best praised across all of our sites and long-considered our most versatile handpan and by far our most popular since its introduction to NovaPans in 2020, the Generation 4s have taken the handpan industry by storm. The Generation 4s have challenged and surpassed the original stigma that a competitively-valued handpan couldn't be as good as one of its more "higher-end" counterparts. With its easy access to harmonics, pitch bends and control over dynamics, intonation and projection, the Generation 4 goes beyond the best starter handpan, but in fact, a handpan that'll last for a career in playing.
A History of NovaPans Handpans:
All of NovaPans Handpans are hand-tuned and quality-checked by professionals from Europe and the USA who are situated in China and previously, in Vietnam and Ukraine. Instead of an underpriced handpan from China that hasn't met quality standards or an overpriced handpan from home whose price and availability is just laughable, NovaPans sits somewhere in the middle, making affordable handpans that meet quality requirements.
The combination of handpan production expertise where quality mass production is a reality allows NovaPans to not only create high-quality handpans, but to make them in quantity. Despite the widespread misinformation that you must spend thousands, wait months/years and only purchase locally in order to even touch a quality handpan, this is just not true. NovaPans has sold well over 5000 handpans since 2016 and received the highest reviews on all platforms to reflect this. NovaPans continues to break the boundaries of how much we need to spend in order to get a quality musical instrument, or dare we say, a quality musical instrument we can at least get started on! We continue to prioritize our customers' financial, personalization, and range of selection needs first before anything else. Welcome to NovaPans, the world's most affordable, accessible and quick-delivery handpans.
☆ Every handpan may display signs of tuning marks to some extent which is a natural production trait considering that all of our handpans are hand-tuned. These are not scratches but in fact, very subtle indents and practically non-visible unless scrutinized.
☆ It is not uncommon to use an electronic tuner and notice a slight microtonal offset for any of your handpan notes. This is actually the case with all handpans and is not a reflection of quality in any way. No handpan which doesn't sound proportionally in tune within a 5-10 cents tuning threshold (which is noticeable by the human ear) does not pass our quality check and is returned for retuning.
☆ We offer a 30-day return policy but also make exceptions under special circumstances - we are a very human "business", despite what a corporation is "meant" to be (we wouldn't be the best sellers on Etsy if we weren't!).
☆ Also, should you require any future retuning services, we will help fund them! Contact us anytime!
