The story…

In the 7th grade Tony Meister inherited an old Slingerland drumset from a relative and started playing drums at the age of 12. His passion for music eventually led him to the guitar and other percussion instruments over the years. However, nothing compared to the mysterious sound of the handpan.

The handpan is a vibrating instrument with various tonal fields that mesmerizes the listener. After seeing a viral video of Sam Maher, Tony was ignited and the pursuit of a handpan began. The handpan gives off a sound that cannot be slotted easily into any specific category of instrumentation. The ancient, yet familiar sound captivates and leads one to believe it was originated in a Far East region such as India or Asia. However, it is a modern instrument developed in 2001 in Bern, Switzerland. High demand and low supply of the instrument has not only created high prices, but has made it challenging to find a quality maker. Fortunately Tony was able to connect with Isthmus Instruments who creates these instruments with care and precision. Their heat treatment process creates a unique blue color that symbolizes the rare beauty and sound of the instrument.

“Sing unto Him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.”Psalm 33:3
