Playing a handpan is inviting a sense of magic into our lives. If we let the instrument guide us, our creative musical potential is easily and playfully tapped into. Presence fills our minds. We drift, we flow, we feel restored. Handpans are intuitively and easily accessible even to people without any musical background. A truly universal instrument for our times.
Soma are sound sculptures handmade in Switzerland. They are inspired by the
well-known Hang®, built
by PANart Hangbau AG.
All instruments are carefully tuned and heat treated many times to ensure warm intonation and structural stability.
More information about the instrument can be found on the FAQ page, Soma's Facebook presence or our Instagram account. The videos linked here and on our Youtube channel are all recorded without special equipment or additional sound effects. For the best audio experience, however, headphones are recommended. Thank you for visiting!
- Soma is accepting new requests for its Sound Sculptures. The current waiting-time for a Soma is roughly 2-3 months. Please contact us here. Often we also have Soma's for immediate purchase (without waiting-time).
- The first stage of development of the 2nd Sound Sculpture, the LYNX, a handpan playable by hand and feet, is finished. It is ready to released into the wider public. See video below and on our Youtube Channel.
- Soma has been extending its scale range by introducing the "Extended Range Series" recently. These Soma's feature one or two more high notes than on a standard handpan of the same scale. Please read the FAQ's for pricing.
- Soma has introduced a new Dome Architecture a while ago
(see Youtube description for details). Inpexes are continued to be made on demand.
