Research and development is a main activity and focus for the Alma Handpan project.
Perfecting high notes and stretching beyond the 5th octave.
High notes bring that extra spice to music. When you feed the audiance with beautiful, clean high notes, already touching the ceiling, but then you give that extra push to some incredible unexpected clean super high notes it really makes both the player and the audience go wild. We are focused on bringing such possibilitys to the handpan world. After some succesfull experiences we are now working with and perfecting notes within the 5th and 6th octave.
Here are some results:
Alma Double Layout
Alma Double Layout its a one of a kind handpan that introduces two main diferences when compared with the standard 9 notes and the so called mutant handpans.
1. The Double layout offers a surprising amount of 18 notes plus a ding, all this only in the Ding shell (Handpan top).
2. The Double layout includes notes as high as those in the 6th octave. Thats right. This extra note progression can really push the limits of your compositions.
This is an exclusive Alma Handpan design that we are just launching to the world.
