How to protect your handpan?

Why my handpan has become oxide? Does the sun affect my handpan? Is my handpan suitable for playing under the rain? My city has hot and humid weather, can I have a handpan here? Etc. These are questions that may address your concerns after buying a handpan, in this article, we are going to answer these questions generally and give you some pieces of advice to better “protect your Handpan”.

Heat and Sun

First and foremost is the heat, although heat is vital during the different Pantams’ making processes for the metal stabilization and stress relief purposes, it can be harmful for the ready to use instrument. As everybody may know, metal absorbs heat interestingly fast, and handpans are made from metal, so they can be affected by heat and if you play your instrument out under the sun, you will notice that the handpan becomes warm and warmer and its sound starts to become unusual and weird. Therefore, it’s highly suggested not to play your Pantam in the hot and sunny weather since it can harm your instrument irreversibly. In fact “de-tuning” is one of the most common damages that can happen to your Handpan because of long-term exposure to the sun. Remember that if you leave your handpan out in the sun for a long time, wait until it becomes cool, and then play it again.

Kita Glues

It is good to know that Kita uses glues which are resistant to sun and heat (UV Resistant), so other than what is mentioned regarding the heat effect on the metal surface, there will be no problem with detaching of the bottom and top part of your Kita Pantam.



Then it’s cold. Generally, there is no source for the cold and the absence of heat is called cold. As it’s mentioned earlier, metals absorb heat easily and can convey this to whole surface. Although the cold negative effect is not as aggressive as the heat, but it still can cause the handpan making abnormal sound during the playing.


Humidity is another threatening factor for the health of your Handpan. Humidity can accelerate the rusting of steel, which your handpan is made of. Humidity is much more aggressive in higher temperatures and can help the corrosion phenomenon to faster eat up your instrument. In other words, when the rusting starts on the surface of your handpan, it is the time that the metal is going away and you will first notice some orange color dots on the surface and if they develop you will see wholes. Kita Pantam suggests that you clean your handpan every time you play it with the microfiber cloth and also keep the surface oily all the time.

In conclusion, try not to leave your Handpan or play it in hot sunny days or when it is rainy. Also if you need more detail about how to clean your handpan you can read our “How to take care of your handpan post,

handpan care

 this article is about handpan care. Pantams, handpans and hangdrums are generally made of heat treated steel. Bare surface of steel is susceptible to corrosion and rusting and it happens when metal surface is in contact with oxygen and humidity. So people try to avoid that using many different methods in order to protect their metallic assets.

in handpan care methods having oil on its surface all the time is recommended. Oil creates a barrier between the metal surface and the environment and this way protects it from corrosion. Depending on how many times during the week you play your Pantam, and also the climate in the area you live in, you need to apply oil on the instrument from 7-2 times a week. If you are playing it every day and the climate in your area is humid, then you need to put oil on it every day. In fact the key point is keeping the surface always oily, so whenever it is getting dry, it is the time to apply oil on it.

how to do handpan care

But how you do that? Normally you drop couple of oil drops on the surface and then using a microfiber cloth, spread the oil uniformly to all the top and bottom surface areas. Note that, do not put oil on the inner surface, our experience says the oil inside will gradually penetrate the glue and weakens it causing the sound losing the sustain and becoming dull.

For the places near the sea or other areas with high humidity climates, it is recommended to buy stainless steel Handpan instead of the regular Nitraded ones. SS instruments do not need oil and have very high resistance against corrosion.
