C Major Diatonic (G3-C5)
The Handpipes are a plosive aerophone designed to be played with just your hands (hence the name) to deliver a wonderfully funky sound with a lot of soul. Easy to play, you'll master them in no time at all with just a little practice. The diatonic tuning allows the musically motivated to play hundreds of tunes, be creative and improvise to their heart’s content.
The pipes are arranged diatonically and set in a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) mounting. There are no beaters or mallets as you need nothing but your own hands to play, however you may purchase a pair of our neoprene paddles if you would prefer.
Play that funky music - a very entertaining and rewarding musical adventure awaits!
