We have been exploring stainless steel Saraz handpans lately and are excited to the share the first few instruments that we have completed. The material is a very different animal that has pushed us to develop some new building techniques. A few inherent differences of the material include significantly longer sustain, dampening of high partial metallic frequencies, and inherent rust resistance.
We recently launched our new Saraz “Meditation Series” at the turn of 2019 with every offered scale available on stainless steel. Please visit our Online Shop to order your own custom Meditation Series Saraz and to keep an eye out for some immediately available instruments coming down the line.
The first Stainless Steel Saraz was a 21″ diameter C# Minor
C#/ G#, B, C#, D#, E, F#, G#
Our second was a 20″ D Minor
D/ A, C, D, E, F, G, A
The third stainless steel Saraz was a 19″ G Minor
G/ D, Eb, F, G, A, Bb, D
Late 2018 Stainless Saraz: “The Meditation Series”
With the following instrument, we are officially confident that we can not only build any variation on our offered scale list from stainless but also that it is just as stable as our other material. 😉
