FAQs - Everything you need to know about your purchase at Handpan.World

Our FAQs inform you about the most important questions about Handpan.World:

Is a bag included with the handpans?

The instruments we offer do not include bags, as everyone has different requirements for a handpan case. Some want the simplest/cheapest option, others are looking for a solid or high-quality soft case for everyday use, and others travel a lot or are on the move and need the best possible protection from a hard case. Some don't want a bag at all because they only want to play the instrument at home.

As you can see, it makes no sense to offer a specific bag model directly. Therefore, we have decided not to include the bags in the price, but to offer a 20% discount when you buy a handpan online and order equipment such as bags, stands, holders and care supplies (for a maximum of 3 products) at the same time. This discount will be automatically applied to you during the ordering process.
This means you have the option to freely choose your bag and every need is equally catered for.
