Yishama Pantam 2018 -F2/ F G Ab C Eb F G review

Hello everyone and thank you again for following me so many.

Sorry if I’m not very present with video blogs but there are so many things to do and the projects that fly around Hct too.

TODAY I WANT TO TALK YOU ABOUT A PANTAM MAKER THAT ALL YOU KNOW VERY WELL.

I’m talking about the Yishama crew, and the two creators behind their harmonic wonders: Yonatan and Ido.

What strikes me most of them is that in a few years They have changed and shaped the landscape around Handpan and Pantam.

I’m talking about new construction, new materials. A research and development that could dwarf the best companies and the best Crews around  the world.

Once, twice times a year I’m lucky to meet them and each time they amaze me with ever more beautiful and incredible instruments.

I always say that this will be the last instrument that will amaze me but every time it’s not like that.

Such Crazy guys… i love them.

In Greece at the HONA Festival we were delighted with the latest creations with a new material called from them Hybrid material.

Pantam with only 7 note and super Deep, never try something like this before.
 
In this video I play a F2 Pigmy F2 / F G Ab C Eb F G … an instrument that leaves you breathless.

It ‘s true that it does matter how many notes you hammer and this “goldrush” to make so many notes often leaves without good  quality and magic harmonics.

It’s amazing also the gu Side. it’s use special wood / cartoon reflex GU.

It’s  Interesting because it amplifies the range of the sound and the strength of the low parts.

Anyway Buddy better leave you to the video that makes better than a hundred words.

I want thx again Ido and Yonatan for such passion and love for work and create magical moment in our life. 

See you around special souls.. Bless… :-*

Big  hug, see you soon around the World.

Alessio Hangcare.

PanSiam Thailand Handpan Gathering 2019 - The first Handpan TreeHouse Gig

Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog.

Today I want to talk about a Festival that I will not miss at all.

I already bought my tickets since it will be a limited number event in an incredible and unique location of its kind.

This Gig Organized by On solos Ezhan of Echosound Sculpture and other Thai friends promises sparks in all respects of the nature, relax and meditation.

A hotel on a tree will surround this special and exclusive event, as well as having the opportunity to do so many adventures and excursions in the jungle.

This event will be held from January 11th to 13th 2019 in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

For more info visit their FB page:

Some photos of the accommodation, for website visit:

Besides the special location, the timing is perfect too.

The Pansiam will take place exactly 1 week before Panoz in Australia and fly from Thailand to Australia is
much faster and cheaper.

Of course I will take this wonderful opportunity to visit another huge event in a breathtaking location … Australia.

But for now, enjoy some photos taken from the site of the structure.

Do not stop dreaming

Thx again Pansiam.

A big hug.

With some of you we’ll see right there.

PAN STREAM 2018 Gen. Scale: (D) A Bb D E F G A C Flash Sale

Include Evatek Design Beach Mood Black Color + New Memory foam  (2.440,00 € VAT inc. )

PanStream – UK. A true master in the world of steel.

Mark Wilson by PanStream has finally emerged from the shell to be reborn as a butterfly full of colors and liveliness.

I love this guy… He’s full of Talent and he will show really soon.

The instrument just played here is the result of passion, love and knowledge about Steel and SteelPan and now HandPan.

Over than 20 years of experience isn’t possible to buy in 1 day.

From the first moment I open the box and take out of the bag, Evatek of course,  I understood the finest quality respect compared to last year, when I spoke with him at Hangout UK.

Color, touch and external finish are excellent and is also a pleasure for the eyes.

Speaking of the handpan no need to say that buy one and try it in person to believe how it’s amazing.

Clear, well balanced and with a really irrepressible sustain.

The harmonics are so sweet that you loose yourself inside like an endless loop.

I can not add anything but my most vivid compliments to Mark for the splendid result obtained.

An instrument ready to take the place of the most demanding collections and for the most experienced players.

Well it’s really an interesting price compared to the quality and manufacture of this instrument.

For the shells they use 1.14 mm thick DC04 metal and hydroformed shell from him self i suppose.

Instrument is nitrided and heat treated (baked). I don’t have anymore info from the maker about the treatment.

The scale

Such easy scale, but so deep and sure from the BEST SELLER scale.

D minor with notes: (D) A Bb D E F G A C – it’s a combination between Mystic and Insen scales.

Anyway i will keep this baby for my private collection because meritate to stay with me now

So, I do not want to bore all of us again with many speeches and I leave with my impro.

The Video Review

I had a lot of fun playing it, thanks again to Mark for making me dream again for 7 min. Wow

Hardcase Technologies Handpan Review

Hello everyone pan player and not … 😀 Today I am happy to introduce a maker who would not need any introduction. A true master in the world of steel. Mark Wilson by PanStream has finally emerged from the shell to be reborn as a butterfly full of colors and liveliness. I love this guy… He’s full of Talent and he will show really soon.

I can not add anything but my most vivid compliments to Mark for the splendid result obtained. An instrument ready to take the place of the most demanding collections and for the most experienced players. Another merit is the price, only 1350 GBP UK taxes included without Bag and shipping.
Well it’s really an interesting price compared to the quality and manufacture of this instrument.

Are you ready for the Flytek Revolution?

Hi everybody.  I’m really excited to introduce you our new Flytek project, which We have been working hard on for a long time.

After years of research on innovative materials we are honored to have started a collaboration with the company PAUA and to be able to use their innovative patent.

Thanks to our cooperation we found the final solutions for air flights. An innovative and simple idea at the same time. Times of light are awaiting for the handpan players.

We have not just focused on safety, but comfort above all.

After years of festivals and gatherings all over the world, I noticed that several of us have contracted a sort of allergy in traveling with rigid Hardcases or backpacks too heavy, sometimes too protective to be worn in a simple festival.

Here is born the idea, to create a container both ultra-light and ultra-protective to hold an handpan bag, it’s not important whether it’s evatek or soft bag, what counts is that you can also put inside shoes, clothes and everything you need to stay away for several weeks and have only one bag to carry with you with everything you need.

Paua ran to help us, with a very light but protective material perfect for this special use. The 22-30 kg imposed by the airlines will be a child’s play.

We have thought of all those people who have small houses and who never know where to store their bags after traveling. A common problem.

Flytek will be the first Foldable flight case in the world.

Once stored in its special storage bag it will be very easy to place it under the bed or behind a door.

A suitcase containing over 120 liters.

How does Flytek work? Many of you may think too good to be true.

I will not give you all the advances now but I leave you with some basic notions of how the Paua® technology works

We will not reveal everything now, but we will leave you with some basic notions of how Paua® technology works.

1. Impact energy is dispersed and absorbed, both laterally and vertically, throughout the matrix of weaved tapes that comprise the outer skin.

2. Energy is dispersed, absorbed in multiple directions and minimised before reaching the inner foam.

3. Any minimal reverberation not fully absorbed through the outer skin is absorbed by the inner foam.

We would like to tell you about the really positive latest tests carried out a few hours ago.

It is impressive how the instrument is protected even inside a soft bag.

We know the pluses of our Evatek and We were sure it would be a success, but We never would have thought such a success using a soft bag.

Obviously We took the liberty of adding two special memory foam under and above the soft bag and We think this will be a standard that We’ll give as an option for those who want to use flytek with soft bags instead of Evatek.

But this is a topic that We will deal better in the future, now we are only in foreplay, but what We see really like us. 😀

Colours, Timing, Prices?

Colours will be a surprise and We will go out of the usual black HCT color, but remaining in style to our philosophy 😉

For the launch? The production will be reduced to few pieces and maybe it will be open only on order. We’re thinking about it 😀

On the next weeks We’ll release more information about prices, orders and timing.

Dont’ forget: patience is the key to success 😉

No more words now. We leave you to the video that We shot, edited and commented with you today.

A big hug.

Alessio Hangcare.
