In keeping true to our mission of the pursuit of integrity and ethical business practices within the world of Pan, as promised, the full deconstruction of the PanART hang documentary is right here, right now. We fully understand that many, if not most of the hang enthusiasts and proponents accept everything that Felix Rohner says as truth, without questioning him.

Handpan "Producers" Who Sell Women's Clothing Full-Time and Handpans on the Side

The handpan business has become flooded with an array of characters with get rich quick schemes on their minds and dollar signs in their eyes. A huge bane of my existence are the self-styled  handpan "producers" who not only cannot tune the instruments they "produce", but also sell totally unrelated products i.e. Women's clothing as a main business.  A specific handpan "producer" comes to mind in fact, and if you have been on eBay following the handpan market regularly for any length of time, you will know which "producer" I am speaking of.  Let's be honest, would you trust a...
