In 2011 PANArt continues building the Free Integral Hang as in the last year. It is not tuned to the pitch A = 440 Hertz and no different scales will be made – not even on individual request.
The price for a Hang including natural fibre case remains 2000 CHF as in recent years (since 2008). Due to the changing of currency rate the price in Euro is adjusted and will amount 1600 € in this year.
Having moved the workshop in January to new premises in the same building PANArt recently invited customers for a visit in Bern to choose and pick up their Hang in the period from February to June. The majority of them were already informed about the Free Integral Hang in November 2009. They had applied but couldn’t get a Hang in 2010. But some sent their request for a Hang only in the first half of the year 2010. In some weeks further prospective customers from 2010 will receive invitations for the second half of 2011.
Before writing a letter to PANArt anyone interested in a Hang should read the texts Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer published in the Hang Library. As in past years you can contact PANArt for a Hang request only by letter. Neither e-mails nor people who show up unannounced in the workshop will be considered. The example of the customers who are invited this year demonstrates that it may take many months before receiving a response to a letter with a Hang request. In the case of an invitation it is necessary to visit the ‘Hangbauhaus’ in Bern to pick up a Hang personally. No Hanghang will be shipped.
