In order to buy a Hang, you must state your interest in a posted letter to Hang makers Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer. And so, about ten letters arrive at PANArt Hangbau AG in Bern every day.
In its most recent newsletter, PANArt asks that no further letters be written at this time:
Hangbauhaus, September 7, 2012
PANArt Hangbau AG is appealing to interested parties not to send any more letters asking about the Free Integral Hang. All of the instruments which were built this year have already found their new owners.
The Hang makers are now taking a recess and going into retreat. Besides providing a creative regeneration, this pause serves to further develop the Hang and to plan and prepare the festive activities for PANArt’s 20th anniversary. On the occasion of this joyful event, which will presumably take place in spring 2013, PANArt will introduce its new instrument to guests arriving from all over the world.
PANArt will also post reports in due time about the Hang of 2013 in the Hang Library. Should you still be interested in a Hang, please contact PANArt again at that time.
In view of this situation, it would be futile to write to PANArt before the new Hang is presented. It would only result in a negative reply.
