We are Pantheon Steel. We make the Halo, the original American handpan, simple by design yet with uncompromising quality and integrity for those who seek meaningful sound.
The Halo could not exist without innovations across many disciplines. It is the result of technology, artistry and craftsmanship working harmoniously together. Between all of us at Pantheon Steel, we have well over 50 years of tuning experience and we are on a quest to deliver the most advanced handpans yet. And while the engineering behind it is our most advanced, the way you play the Halo is remarkably simple. In fact, we believe the Halo provides the rarest of gifts: creative freedom. The Halo is currently available in two sizes: 22 and 23 inches in diameter. For each Halo size we have carefully chosen sound models (or scales) with their own sonic flavor that produce exceptional purity. The Halo+ is for those who want more out of their Halo. It offers more notes without sacrificing the low and high ends of our existing sound models. Reminiscent of the Trinidadian steel pan concept where the highest notes are in the center, the Halo+ differs from the common mutant handpan layout where the lowest and highest notes share the center region. All new Halos are “all-inclusive”. They come with FREE shipping (up to $200 USD) and a FREE hard case — that is a $250-$400 value depending on your location. Kyle also offers free Halo retunes to be scheduled based on availability (you only pay for shipping). P.S. Did you know it was Kyle Cox who coined the term “handpan”? You can listen to Kyle share the Halo story on The Handpan Podcast.
