A couple of years ago we got the opportunity to work with none other than the drumming legend that is Danny Carey from the Band Tool.
Hearing percussive and melodic licks in the latest Tool album I realised that the hand pan could very well have a place in their unique style of music. The opportunity arose to create an instrument for him, which he worked closely with us on, and out of that came this phenomenal set of unique mutant pans using the D Mixolydian scale paired up with the F2 Pygmy. Since the first nitrided models were made we have also made him a pair of stainless steel 7empest pans that you can see him with pictured here.
Danny Carey is, in our opinion, one of the most talented drummers/percussionists on the plannet and we can’t wait to see what he does with them!

A Direct quote from Danny: “They need to be exposed in every venue and genre!”
These pans work extremely well as a set, as the 2 scales together create a larger range of notes, or individually, to meet the requirements of just about any player! Limited to just a small number of 33 per scale, you really aren't going to see many, if any, like these!
These pans truly are something special!

We received a phone call one day from New York, which turned out to be Dominic Monaghan's agent reaching out for a collaboration with PanAmor Handpans. Dominic had spent over an hour playing a PanAmor hand pan in a shop in London and instead of buying one he wanted to reach out and create something awesome with us directly.
During a conference call, Dominic explained his fascination with different types of animals and insects and his love for the geometry we so often feature on our instruments.
With Dominic's interests in mind, Daryl created a design incorporating his favourite creatures adorned with geometry and shipibo icaro imagery in a circular mandala formation.
It is safe to say that Dominic absolutely loved the design and the sound of his PanAmor Handpan.
