Hardcase Technologies, the Italian company behind the ever popular Evatek range of Handpan protective cases (and a bunch of other stuff), have given us so many interesting things over the years since they appeared on the scene, that you always know that something new is just around the corner…
The HandClap is a customizable wooden percussive "add-on" for the Handpan. Using magnets (we believe) to attach a variety of small percussive additions to the Handpan's rim.
And the Hardcase Technologies description reads as thus:
'Connect the groove within you and let the rhythm flow on your Handpan with the innovative and unique HandClap. Enjoy discovering an alternative way to play your Handpan. All you need to be inside the Groove is a Clap. The first RIM Add-On for handpan in the world, only by Hardcase Technologies.'
It looks as if we've stumbled across these before the official launch, though now that we have, we can't not share at least a short post about it. However, with the video still being in "super-secret" mode over at YouTube, we're not going to embed it here yet - but you can find a video over on the Hardcase Technologies website (along with a bunch of info): HERE
