Thats pretty good! It appears to be a bit like an upside-down steel drum, except played with the hands. its got a nicer, more "mellow" tone too, IMO.

I've heard it live once and it's really fantastic sounding instrument.

Yes, it is a "recent development", you can buy it in a little factory in Switzerland.

Here is some more about it:
quote:

Hang means "hand" in the Bernese language. It was developed by instrument builders Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer in Bern, Switzerland. It was the result of many years of research on the steelpan and the study of the diverse collection of instruments from around the world, such as Gongs, Gamelan, Ghatam, drums, and bells. The Hang resembles a flying saucer, and the sounds are really out of this world!

It sounds beautiful.
It seems to be tuned in the mixo-lydian mode which always sounds very folk like and relaxed.
