Secondhand instruments?

We cannot guarantee the performance or quality of any Nirvana Handpan, or Acolyte Handpan not purchased directly from us. These instruments require care and some owners care for their instruments better than others.


We do everything we can to maintain the best visual appearance of our instruments before they are shipped to you, however due to the building process sometimes your pan may get small scratches here and there but nothing substantial.

Does the instrument come with a bag?
