Gio E Kurd extended, 15 + 1

2.900,00 €
incl. VAT

With 11 notes on the top, 4 notes on the bottom shell and a ding in the middle, this handpan is a dream for any player who craves the maximum possibilities of a Kurd Scale.

The two notes lower than the ding (middle bass note in the middle) open up completely new possibilities in composing and free playing. It offers the right balance between low and high notes.

This handpan is characterized by a particularly high dynamic range - it can be played softly and quietly as well as energetically and powerfully, while remaining stable and clean. The higher notes, as well as the shoulder tone, have a certain sharpness, adding to the power and spice of Gio's Handpans. The optical edges between the tones are soft and the surface is uniformly blue and matte.

For a good 1.5 years, this scale is also in our concert - set and has always enchanted the audience of our concerts. A must-have for every Kurd - lover who wants to experience the true potential of this scale.

Note: All our handpans include now the Yatao softbag. Handpans are unique handcrafted instruments - therefore the surface color and structure varies.

More information about the handpan maker Gio
Sergio and Malte met in 2015 on the streets of Palma de Mallorca. At that time still very unacquanted concerning Handpans, Malte learned through Sergio a deeper insight into the world of UFO instruments and the two of them played together in the local markets of Mallorca. They talked a lot about building their own Handpans and after some time Sergio was ready to start. Meanwhile he spends most of his daily life in the wooden house of his garden - the workshop. For a good 1.5 years now, Sergio's instruments have been an integral part of Malte's concert set. Especially the "E Kurd 17" has become a classic since the joint video, which impresses with its virtuosity and versatility - we are very happy to offer it to you here. Solid instruments in a constant high quality.

FAQ

Read frequently asked questions about buying a handpan

  • How is the handpan shipped?

    Don't worry, we are used to pack and ship handpans, also overseas! To ensure even more protection each handpan is sold with our Yatao softbag. You can also choose to upgrade to our Namana soft- and harcases, but this is not required for the shipment. Please be aware that shipment to a destination outside of Europe will require customs registration and thus may take a longer time period.

    We ship with DHL and insure each package with at least 2500,-€.

    In short: Yes! We are very happy to serve customers from all over the world. If your country is not available at the checkout , please get in touch!

    Please be aware that there will be additional import custom charges from your country you will have to cover. We can assist but can not give exact information about every country, this is the case for e.g. US, Canada, UK (since brexit) and more.

  • Why is the handpan not available?

    All products we sell are in stock. However, it can happen that certain products are sold out. Since we have permanent cooperations with our partners, all handpans or equipment products will be available again in the foreseeable future!

  • Why is everything written in English?

    Due to the current circumstances we have to shift our focus towards international customers. Our handpan offer exclusivly targets international customers. Unfortunately we are not able to offer any handpans for German customers for the forseeable future.

    But: All other products like handpan bags, stools and stands are still available and purchasable for German customers. We hope we will be still your favourite place to come and thank you for your support!

    Leider dürfen wir zurzeit keine Handpans in Deutschland vetreiben oder anbieten. Wir arbeiten an einer Lösung und hoffen, dass wir euch so lange mit unserem reichhaltigen Angebot an Handpan Zubehör helfen können! Danke für eure Untersstützung!
