PURE SOUND WAX
Josh Rivera, who tunes handpans at Saraz, extensively researched oils, waxes and rust preventatives in 2016. After months of testing and dozens of experimental batches, he developed Pure Sound Wax.
If you are a player looking for the purest sound possible in your Saraz while also achieving rust protection, then we recommend this product over other options. It requires more effort to apply than oils because it is a wax based paste, however it has virtually no effect on the sound of a Saraz where as oils typically shortens the sustain by about 1-2 seconds as well as dampen many of the higher frequencies associated with “brightness”. The wax is odorless and made from all natural ingredients, none of which are petroleum based.
We currently only recommend Pure Sound Pan Wax for the Saraz because it has not been tested across many other brands. If you test it on a different brand of Handpan, please email us with feedback about your experience. If you do not prefer the product or effect, it can be removed with rubbing alcohol. A 0.5 oz tin of Pure Sound Pan Wax is now included with each Saraz. To order please visit our Pure Sound Pan Wax Ordering Page.
FROGLUBE® is a non-toxic, biodegradable lubricant made from USDA Certified Food-Grade ingredients that dissolve carbon on contact. It contains no petroleum or water and has a heavy specific gravity, which enables it to ‘season’ handpan metal by absorption deep into the pores. Using FROGLUBE® on your Saraz will reduce friction and protect it against rust. This product has been the most popular Handpan Rust Preventative for years for a reason.
