Is the TerraPan a handpan/pantam/cupola?
The TerraPan is the melodic sound sculpture created by TerraTōnz. Technically, it is one of the dome-shaped metal percussion instruments generally referred to as a handpan. In non-English speaking countries it is known as the pantam or cupola. However, in keeping with the philosophy of the original maker of the PANArt HANG, we prefer to avoid generic terms when describing our art. Therefore we currently refer to the classification as "HANG-like, in honor of the original maker of this type of instrument, since they did not officially name the type of instrument.
