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, others travel or travel a lot and need the best possible protection from a hard case. Some people don't want a bag at all because they only want to play the instrument at home. You see, it makes no sense to offer a fixed bag model directly. We have therefore decided not to include the bags in the price, but to offer a 20% discount when purchasing a handpan online when ordering equipment such as bags, stands, holders and care supplies (for a maximum of 3 products). This discount will be automatically applied to you during the ordering process.
This means you have the opportunity to freely choose your bags and every need is equally catered for.

Is installment financing possible?

Our aim is to make it possible for everyone to have the dream of owning their own handpan despite the high investment. To make it easier to finance a handpan, we offer installment financing at fair conditions. This allows you to start playing the handpan straight away without having to pay a large amount all at once. Instead, you can relax and finance your handpan over a longer period of up to 36 months at good conditions. You have the freedom to choose the installment amount and term. You are also welcome to make a deposit and pay off the remaining amount in installments.

Overview of the installment conditions by term:

  • For terms of up to 12 months: special conditions of 4.90% effective annual interest rate

Is there a guarantee on handpans purchased from Handpan.World?

We guarantee high sound quality and tuning stability of our handpans. Depending on the brand and model, our manufacturers' instruments maintain their tuning for three to five years. There is a two-year warranty on tuning stability - in the event of a mistune within the warranty, we will grant it a free retune.

This guarantee does not apply to detuning caused by your own fault or external influences such as falls or solid objects striking sound fields. If the device is out of tune due to accidents or improper handling, you can use the paid Handpan.Word Retune service. Even after the warranty has expired, we will of course take care of retuning the handpans purchased from Handpan.World. The costs vary between €150-300, depending on the model and the degree of detuning.

All directly available handpans are delivered within the EU in 5-14 working days.
All other pre-ordered handpans are lovingly handcrafted for you. Depending on the manufacturer, the production time is 3-10 weeks. After you place your order, we will inform you about the expected delivery time and keep you informed about the status of things.
