Update October 4th, 2013:
PANArt asks, not to send requests for a Free Integral Hang any longer. There are already enough requests for all the instruments mentioned in the Newsletter below, that can be distributed until spring 2014. Therefor no more offers to buy a Free Integral Hang can be made.
Besides the new Gubal Felix Rohner und Sabina Schärer continue to build the Free Integral Hang. PANArt asked me to publish the following newsletter. It explains how the instruments will be distributed:
Newsletter from PANArt Hang Manufacturing Ltd.
The festivities of the 20th anniversary of PANArt are over. The new instrument Gubal was introduced on June 1, 2013. The web site www.hang.ch was relaunched. The Hang makers have written a book which can be purchased on the Internet site. In the latter part of the book preview you can see the Hang makers play the Gubal and listen to some audio samples.
Besides the intense labor of developing a new instrument to a marketable status, several Free Integral Hanghang were also produced during the first half of 2013. In the fall, all of these are predestined for those who have been waiting for one for a long time.
The first series of Gubal is intended for experienced Free Hang players who will help us to further explore this new art form. During the coming months further Free Hanghang will be produced and the Gubal construction will follow its course.
After our winter break 2013/2014 (Hangruhe), these instruments will have matured and be played in, so that we can release them for sale.
Should you be interested in purchasing a Free Integral Hang, please let us know in writing. We also ask you to ignore any recommendations or advice floating around on the Internet. Your letter need not be hand written nor emotionally charged. Reading our book will serve as an orientation guide.
