Anyone here tried playing a spacedrum .They look easy to play and you could sound good without too much effort They are priced at around 1000euro depending on how many notes you want. I am considering buying one.

I've always wanted one, but if it's anything like its predecessor the Hang drum, it's going to be a bit too pricey for my budget.

"Spacedrum" is the name of the song in the video. The instrument is called a "hang" which PANArt will like to remind everyone "is not a drum". This distinction is because if you play the hang like a drum you can damage the instrument by applying too much force.

(The spelling of "Hang" is a little weird. In short, in English, when we make the 'n' sound, our tongue is in the front of our mouth. But in the word "Hang" the tongue is supposed to be a further back like it would be for a 'g' and so the word is spelled with an 'ng'. It may be easiest to think of "HAN" when you try to pronounce the name.)

I haven't played one. But a few things are worth mentioning. PANArt has moved on from making the hang, you may be interested in looking at the other instruments that they are making now and are purchasable through them: http://panart.ch/en/instruments ; or you should at least be aware that they are making other instruments now.

Also, PANArt has called them "sound sculptures" in the past so it is a little unclear to me what they are aiming at. I enjoy making traditional music, but I think they are trying to explore sound in a way different than what I tend to do. I mention this because it might be that their hang is their only instrument that you like.

It looks like an inverted Trinidadian steel pan drum, to me. Sounds like one, too, only not as clear because it lacks the resonance that the barrel provides.
