How to order Karumi Steel handpan?
I build instruments only for personal requests. If you want to put an order for handpan from me, you need to send an email at titled „Handpan” with your name and address, the scale of your choice and Facebook nickname (if you have any). When I get message from you, I will confirm your order, give you estimated time of completing your handpan and I will ask you to send 200 euro deposit - the rest of the payment will be needed when instrument is ready for shipping/picking up. This is a list of available scales, if you want something that is not on the list – just let me know, we will try to work it out:

This batch of instruments cost 1450 euro for standard instrument: 8 notes plus ding. Bottom notes are also possible in the range E3 - C5. First additional bottom note costs 200 euro; and than 2nd, 3rd, 4th... - 100 euro for each. This price includes instrument with a scale of your choice, softbag, microfibre cloath for cleaning, decorative braid and shipping box with packaging. I also give you one year quarantee for tuning (free retuning service in this time – up to 3 times, domages and unproper use not included). Tuning in 432Hz is also possible for most of the scales (B4 starts to be strongly influenced by impedence in 432Hz).
I ship worldwide in well secured cardbox, insurance and tracking. The cost of shipping vary for different parts of the world – from 65 euro in Europe up to 220 euro for further directions. There are also countries, where I'm not allowed to send instruments (for example Iran). Please ask me for a quote when you are interested. Personal pick up in my workshop is now not possible. Returning of a new handpan is possible in 2 weeks time from purchase, in original cardbox with no domages , scratches etc.
Maintenance of Flowpan: handpans are protected from rust with nitriding leyer on both sides but anyway they need regular maintenance – once per two weeks it's good to treat them with Phoenix Oil. Using instruments in higher humidity or at the seaside is the case to do it more often - even every day! You should also avoid storing you handpan in a closed bag – after travelling you should take it out of the bag. Enclosed microfibre cloath should be used for cleaning the handpan from sweat of our fingers or legs i hot weather.
Tuning of the instruments is stable and I quarantee it for the first year of normal using of the instrument. Later no big changes of the tuning is expected, but every 2-3 years refreshing / fine-tuning may be needed. Tuning service is available in my workshop (only for my instruments) and it costs up to 100 euro depanding on amount of work.
Many blessings <3
