Enjoy the freedom in handpan music
with our stage ready standalone instrument


improved digital percussion

Experience a highly realistic handpan playing sensation with our improved digital percussion, NeoTone. The hit-, pressure-, and area-sensitive tone fields offer a unique and fresh sound quality for an uncompromised concert performance.


Discover digital tone-fields

With a patent pending position-detecting technology, the instrument is able to produce realistic sounds based on different
hit-positions, such as multiple tones of a simple hit, or overtones. The ding and dome area, shoulder tones, and even the clap sounds on the body can all be part of your music making.


Play with pressure

The instrument's ability to sense pressure allows for a variety of playing styles, such as staccato notes, muted notes, and particularly the rhythmic sounds of the dome. Lowering the pressure sensitivity also opens up opportunities for children to easily play the instrument.

The 47cm diameter, comfortable body angle, and realistic tone field designs provide a smooth and seamless playing experience. Despite being a fresh and new instrument, NeoTone's natural wooden body and unique handmade finish give it a traditional and authentic feel.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who made NEOTONE?

The NEOTONE came to life from a dream of two friends who wanted to make a digital handpan. It started as a love project and currently they research and develop in a small community every day, supported by a creative community of international handpan-makers.

As a handpan player, would NEOTONE be suitable for me?

If you are a dedicated handpan player who values the healing sound and energy of the handpan, and use it for sound journeys, meditations, or playing acoustic music in various settings, then the NEOTONE may not be the right fit for you.

Who is NEOTONE ideal for?

If you are a musician that uses a digital workstation, has electronic music concepts and wants to incorporate the handpan sound into your music or performances, or if you work in a stage or studio environment, then the NEOTONE is designed for you.

Is the NEOTONE available for purchase now?

Our focus is on ongoing research and innovation in our field, thus, we currently only offer a limited number of beta version instruments for pre-order and it may take some time to fulfill them.

Is any additional equipment or hardware required to make sound with the NEOTONE?

The NeoTone is a standalone digital instrument with its own sound engine and does not require a computer. However, it does not have built-in speakers, sound can be played through one of its audio outputs.

Can effects be applied to the NeoTone's sound?

The current software version does not include built-in sound effects, but like an electric guitar, external effects and distortions can be connected to it.

What scales can the NeoTone play?

Currently, 6 scales are available on the instrument, including B-Amara, C-Aegean, C# Pygmy, D-Kurd, F#2 Pygmy and G-Romanian Hijaz. We will continue to expand the instrument with new scales, which beta customers will receive for free via automatic software updates when the instrument is connected to the internet via WiFi. The majority of the scales are digitized from MAG Instruments handpans, but the starter pack also includes one Yishama scale.

Is it possible to create a custom scale?

Yes, but it may not have the same cohesive sound as an acoustic instrument. There is a chance that disharmony may occur between certain sound samples if they are chosen from scales with vastly different moods.

Does NEOTONE have speakers?

No. You can play it via the line out and headphone connectors. In order for the NEOTONE to sound beautifully, professional audio gear and speakers are recommended, which go beyond the resources and dimensions of the instrument.

Is it possible to integrate body sounds into my performance with NEOTONE?

Yes, you can integrate body sounds into your play as the instrument responds differently to different parts of the body, similar to an acoustic instrument.

Is it possible to use the NEOTONE as a MIDI keyboard or input device?

Yes, the NEOTONE can be utilized both as a MIDI keyboard (through its MIDI out) and as a MIDI device (through its MIDI input). You can also assign separate MIDI notes to the tone-fields and to the body.

What types of foot pedals can be connected to the NEOTONE?

The NEOTONE features two volume/expression pedal connection options which can be assigned to different settings of the instrument through the interface.

Is the NEOTONE a portable and battery-powered instrument?

Yes, the NEOTONE has an estimated battery life of 8 hours of continuous use. It comes with a USB Type-C charger, which can be used to charge the device whether it is being played or not.
