Since 2018 I make instruments in nitrided DC04 and in stainless AISI430 steel.
As I consider myself a beginner with a lot to learn, I didn’t feel ready to sell the instruments I made so far, so up to now I only gave them away as presents.
My friends however were insisting on making instruments for their handpan lesson students and seem to think I already deliver a decent quality for a beginner. Since I have built up quite some debts on this journey, they thought it was time for me to start selling my prototypes in order to get even, and I thought that was a reasonable statement.
I have called my instruments Amaya, like my daughter’s second name.
I am not a great player, my main instrument is the viola. But to give you an idea of my instruments, I present a video of a stainless instrument and a nitrided DC04.
