There is a guest room at the Hanghaus if you feel compelled to take a trip to Switzerland, it is open to the public. meant to combine an indian ghatam and Trinidad steeldrum
There are two sides fashioned out of steel pans
The top is called the Ding side
The bottom is called the Gu side This may be a trick question!
In 2005/2006 the makers decided that all the time they were devoting to fulfill demand wasn't allowing them to continue to experiment
You must write a letter to Panart (they don't have a website).
They only produce a handful of drums a year and are picky about who can purchase them.

I met him when he started working with Carol Joy Holling Camp. He performed with multicultural instruments and then led a drum circle with the kids. What is a Hang ? Evolution of the Hang Drum How do you play a Hang drum? He got his first Hang in 2004- Sold to him from a Seattle music store
He got 2 more in 2005 after speaking with Felix, he was told they would not ship from Bern
Felix told Michael he would ship a Melog hang (A great harmony to the C pentatonic he already owned) and an Ake bono based tuned Hang with a variation (there are no others like it)
He was able to describe to Felix the kind of record he wanted to produce and the instruments he wanted to use, and was thrilled when Felix agreed to send him two!
