Gadung – Concert Series – Equinox: E / G B C D E F# G B
* The color of this instrument is a bit more red due to a different heat treatment, the sustain is nicely long and relaxed/gradual.
So what is the difference between the Gadung ‘Concert Series’ and the Gadung ‘Festival Series’? The Gadung ‘Festival Series‘ is a new handpan series that is in the cheaper segment, and was born from the desire to offer a qualitative alternative to the many cheap, badly build (including Chinese and some Eastern European) handpans that were offered to me to retune. The Gadung ‘Concert Series’ has a longer production process and has a number of extra features that the ‘Festival Series’ does not have: the Gadung ‘Concert Series’ has a tuned Gu (the hole at the bottom) and the edge under the rubber edge is rounded off so that it can also be played easily without a rubber edge. The edge of the ‘Festival Series’ is a bit sharper and may look a little less finished under the rubber edge. It is recommended to play the ‘Festival Series’ with a rubber rim. The Gadung ‘Concert Series’ is therefore just a slightly more luxurious version. The Gadung ‘Festival Series’ is a great alternative when the extra features are not (yet) important.
