A handpan is an instrument with a cha­racteristic, metallic but at the same time soft sound. When striking the specially profiled, metallic soundbox with the finger, you can create a beau­tiful, melodic tune even with a sim­ple rhythm.

Tubular bells consist of metal tuned tubes of different lengths. The longer the tube the tube the lower the sound it pro­duces. To enjoy the mesmerising tone of the tubular bells, you must strike them in the middle with mallets to produce a sound. Even the simplest, intuitively struck rhythm will produce an interesting tune. “Monk” bells are an outdoor instrument which reflects the architecture­ of the Far East. The instrument consists of vertically arranged bells whose rich tones sound ideally in open space. To play the bells, strike each bell sepa­rately from the top to the bottom. You will obtain a mesmerising glissando.
