I had the great pleasure of spending a couple of weeks in a handpan tune shop earlier this fall. I can’t give away the secrets here of course, but here are a few documentary shots I caught of the tuning process. I can tell you it involves hours of painstaking hammering, tuning software, and a lot of patience. Anyone thinking of getting into this must have plenty of Virgo in their chart. 😉 Thanks to Mr. Rivera and his lovely wife for so graciously hosting me during my visit.
