A Growing Secondary Market for Original PANArt Hang Accessories


As we draw towards the end of 2018, a new market for increasingly rare and hard-to-find original PANArt Hang accessories seems to be opening up. As can be seen with two separate auctions for PANArt-made “Dum” appearing for sale over at eBay in parallel. The first we’ve seen offered for sale in the secondary-markets to date…

Made from turned pearwood, Dum, were an accessory PANArt offered around 2004-2007, and reportedly, only around 200 were ever made.

A wooden tube-like accessory intended primarily for use with PANArt’s Gudu-Hang model, the Dum is used to alter the sound of the Hang, lowering the Helmholtz resonance of the Hang, by narrowing and extending the neck of the Gu.

And while originally priced at around 25 Euro as an accessory back in the day when purchased directly from PANArt, sellers over at eBay are currently asking between $350, and $3000. Whether they sell or not however, remains to be seen, at time of writing. But it does suggest that the market for original PANArt accessories such as Dum, and original bags and cases, could become more lively in the future, as Hang-fans seek out authentic accessories for their instruments, and especially those that remain in great condition, despite the passing years…



Which seems to be confirmed by a message (above) we recently received on this site via our other post on the PANArt Dum

[Update] the cheaper of the two did indeed sell...
