These nitrided shells are the perfect canvas for building a high quality handpan. Many other shell providers simply choose any low carbon steel they get and toss it in a nitriding furnace haphazardly. The steel for these shells is carefully sourced, and the nitride treatment is closely controlled to yield a result which has great tuning force (ease of tuning).
Each shell has the following characteristics:
- Hydro-Formed from 18 Gauge ASTM1008 (DC04 equivalent) low carbon steel.
- Fits in 21 inch diameter tuning rings
- 4.85 inches deep
- 0.5 inch wide flange, cut on a CNC plasma cutter for a perfectly circular and clean cut.
Alloying elements and nitride treatments are proprietary and will not be released. These details have been carefully chosen through extensive research and experimentation to result in a canvas that is perfect for tuning, unlike other handpan shell producers.
Max of 6 shells per box for shipping. Larger orders will require freight shipping; please send an email to Help@SymphonicSteel to inquire about larger quantity orders (greater than 20 shells). Larger quantities are subject to discounts as well.
