referred to as a "Pan" "Hang" or "Slap Drum"
it's a neat instrument that looks like 2 Woks
welded together... but it'snot


It's actually a precision instrument developed
and manufacture(D) in Switzerland (past tense)
because for WHATEVER Reason, the company stopped
making them, therefore they're in such limited
supply that they've become astronomically expensive
since the typical initial reaction upon hearing
that sound is "I WANT ONE!!!" cry

For the few that were lucky enough to scarf
them up when they did, it's been a constant
discovery of sounds that vary with different
techniques, including stroking, tapping, and
banging with everything from the fingertips,
palms to elbows.

LUCKILY "There's An App 4 That" wink
