Pi Handpans were developed over a 3 year period in the northern rivers region of New South Wales Australia. Lots of hammering and a few months of Gong studies in Thailand helped to achieve gong tones in a steel drum shaped dome, as is the tradition of handpans. Development was done in a shed with a good tuner and thousands of hours of hammering, during this time the distinctive square tonefield shape of Pi handpans emerged.
Pi Handpans have 2 Mats tuning them. Mat Ledgar founder and Mat O, both have a large musical background and a love of the rich musical tone this instrument achieves.
