The Hang was developed by the instrument builders of Panart, Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer.
It was the result of many years of research on the steelpan and the study of the diverse collection
of instruments from around the world: Gong, Gamelan, Ghatam, drums, bells, Singing Saw...
In November 1999, the Swiss musician Reto Weber visited Panart Ltd, showed his art of playing Ghatam
and dreamed of a sounding pot in steel with some notes to play with the hands. The main components
were ready to be used: Two hemispheres in steel of high quality, one tuned to a scale, the other one
without notes, fixed together- the HANG was born.
HANG means in the Bernese language hand, and so this new instrument of the millenium is played
with the hands. Since its premier at the Frankfurter Musikmesse 2001 it has won many hearts
from musicians all over the world.
