Handpan Tuning Services
For standard handpan tuning on most instruments, the price is variable between $100-$150, depending on how far out of tune the instrument is. There are a number of handpans of which more work is required based on how it was built. While I strive to provide tuning services for all handpans, some of these will either require a higher charge or I may refer you back to the original builder to have them service the instrument. The amount of time it will take to tune can also vary pending the stability of the handpan. Some will require multiple tunings to achieve the most stability possible for that instrument. The more information the better! If you provide a video of each note being played, the name of the maker, year it was made, and the notes in the scale I can give you the most accurate quote.
HOW TO TELL IF YOUR INSTRUMENT NEEDS TO BE TUNED
The first sign is your ears! It often happens that one day while playing your instrument, it just sounds.....off.
That is a good time to check your instrument's tuning.
An easy way to check the tuning is using an app called LinoTune.
I have been using LinoTune as my primary tuning software for years. The mobile App version has been an amazing and low price option for Handpan owners to check their instrument's tuning with ease.
The beauty of using LinoTune is that it is made to easily read and analyze these complex notes with little to no user setup.
