HandPan Get the Vadjraghanta Look

Vadjraghanta have been responsible for producing some of the most visually-stunning steel tongue drum offerings out there for a while now.  A rich-looking dulled-gold/bronze forms the base look of most Vadjraghanta creations, blended with tapestry-like weaves, fractal-like patterns, and embedded gem-like highlights.  If we could personally choose to hang any piece of playable-steel we’ve come across thus far, upon our wall, purely for its ornate qualities, the work of Vadjraghanta, would almost certainly be it.

And recently, we’ve noticed that Vadjraghanta creator, Oleg Veshii, is now bringing the skills he’s formed with his steel tongue drum range, to the Handpan. Collaborating with Handpan tuners, to serve up some of the most luxurious-looking Handpan, we’ve ever seen...





The above two instruments are both OMana Handpan (made by Roman Reva), that have gotten the Vadjraghanta treatment.  

While the one below is an SPB Pantam (made by Victor Levinson)...




Of course, how important “looks” are, to a musical instrument, is a matter of personal opinion.  And with the “Ryo Wo” pan above being priced for sale at close to $7000, plus shipping (at time of posting) - you are going to have to thrust your hands deeply within your pockets (or sell a kidney), to be able to place the sort of Handpan you can imagine Dwarf-armies battling Dragons over in Erebor, within your lap.  But then, these are certainly something that little extra bit special...
