Just noticed that Thomann has started selling two different handpan brands on their website: Terre has been available for some time already and now there are Meinl handpans, too.
Just for the record: personally I have never played instruments by Terre or Meinl (manufactured by Harmonic Art). The videos that I have seen show instruments, that are not even near the quality that their price suggests. I would be extra cautious about buying these instruments from Thomann.
While Terre is fairly unknown builder in the handpan world, Harmonic Art has been around for some years. They are mostly known for their past shady practice of selling overpriced and poorly tuned instruments and constantly changing their company name for no explanation.
The bad side is: you don’t know what you get when you buy these instruments! The good side: Thomann has a good return policy.
I have nothing against commercial handpans, not even poor quality handpans, but they should be accordingly. Thomann is a capitalist company and their mission is to sell a lot of instruments to the world. This means that sometimes availability and maximizing profit runs over quality and culture. If you are interested in these instruments by Terre and Meinl/Harmonic Art, just be aware that you are NOT paying for quality, but for Thomann’s efforts to make extra profit.
What the handpan world needs is a good quality entry level handpan, priced at around 500 €. Just for the reference, in 2001 the first Hang were sold at around 250 €. There are reasons why PANArt could sell their first instruments at this price in beginning, but also why they raised their prices over the years.
