The Yūgen handpans have a powerful and balanced sound. The well-balanced sustain makes a versatile playing style possible. The instruments made of stainless steel resonate for a long time without making percussive and faster playing more difficult. The Yūgen handpans are made in different tunings and in both frequencies 440Hz and 432Hz.
The Japanese word Yūgen stands for the subtle and profound. The principle of yūgen: to express with a few words, brush strokes or sounds the feelings and thoughts that cannot be said or shown.
In this sense, the Yūgen handpans are kept optically simple and are characterized by a clear and balanced sound. They open up a deeper soundscape than you might think at first glance.
