Scales


Portfolio (2016-2020)

The following scales have been built so far @PAN LAB. We hope that more can follow.

Sidenotes:

  • Scale names have very different roots, some have been discovered/named by different steel tuners, (the listed names are quite wide-spread in the Handpan-scene) Some of them have two or more names listed.
  • Orange marked scale names have been discovered and named at PAN LAB (research has shown no existing results so we named them)
  • Only few of these scales have been made with additional bottom notes (which are not mentioned here).
  • Some of the scales have been build additionally for “lefthanded” playing (mirror-inverted layout, also not mentioned in the list).
  • Lowest note so far was an A2.  Highest note E5.
  • recordings have been done with smartphone, no effects
