Tuning Aspects:
☆ The D Kurd scale is by far the most notorious scale, thanks to the famous Hang Massive song, Once Again, on Youtube which was all played on two D Kurd Handpans!. The Kurd scale naturally creates a mood of suspense and allures to mystery using as few as two notes which is something not easily done on most handpan scales - and probably how the D Kurd scale came to fame so easily. If you're looking for a first-time handpan, or you're not sure what scale to choose, the D Kurd is a perfect scale to get started on all the meanwhile impressing friends, family and anybody whose ears fall upon your handpan playing!
Description:
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.
Disclaimerr:
☆ 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 on Etsy if we weren't!).
☆ Also, should you require any future retuning services, we will help fund them! Contact us anytime!
Additional Information:
There are a lot of options, we know! If you'd like additional advice on which handpan to choose, how to learn or how to best play the handpan, then ask our FAQ chatbot found at the bottom right of this page.
Shipping info:
You'll notice that we offer three types of shipping methods; Expedited (Worldwide), In Stock (USA), and In Stock (EU). In Stock handpans are shipped no later than the next day and delivered within 2-7 days (depending on how remote your address is). If your region does not have models In Stock, this just means that we may not necessarily have stock in that region (because they're pending a restock or are just sold out). The Expedited (Worldwide) option is just simply for people who can't wait for the restock and don't mind their handpans arriving from overseas if necessary (or wherever we may have stock available from our global warehouses). Expedited (Worldwide) orders are also for anybody living outside of the In Stock regions and are shipped and delivered within 3-14 days depending on which region.
Shipping from:
Over the years, NovaPans has been able to set up distribution warehouses around the globe based in the US, Europe, Asia and also Australia so don't be alarmed if your "Expedited (Worldwide)" order arrives from either of these regions.

Our Website! We sell a much greater range of handpans, scales, colors and shipping options on our main website, novapans.com. We would love to put our 250+ handpan variation option here on Etsy but they only limit us to two variations only, just enough to fit the handpan model and shipping option.
Our Ratings! You may have seen us on Amazon. If not, check us out! We're particularly prominent in the US where our handpans rank the best (see our reviews!). We've been in the handpan business since 2016, providing over 3000 handpans to very happy buyers worldwide.
Free Lessons! Acquiring a handpan is one thing, but learning to play is another. Although it is an incredibly intuitive instrument to learn - perhaps the easiest - there are always songs and tricks out there to take your handpan playing to the next level.
Accessories! Handpan cases, microphones, stands and more, we've got them all! Check out our Etsy store page to find out more.
We're not sure of its value but Etsy encouraged us to make a "website" version of our Etsy store and so, here it is!
