The E.C.S. Blue Point SteelHarp

E.C.S. Blue Point SteelHarp

Since 2011, this is our benchmark product within the range of hand pans:
Phenomenal in its sound and exceptionally stable in its tuning.

order directly

The Blue Point SteelHarp was added to our product range by the end of 2011. After 35 years of experience in the manufacturing of steel pans we did not need a start-up period to be able to place this high-end product on the market right from the beginning. The accuracy of manual labor still is our figurehead. The beauty of the shaped tonal fields is directly associated with the sound and the stability of our instruments. We manufacture hand pans that are supposed to keep their tuning for an unlimited time.

Stability – what is this and how can you achieve it?

Stability does not depend on the employed material thickness; neither does it depend on its hardness grade. Stability depends on flexibility. To us, this means causing the tone fields to vibrate without friction.

Miracle of sound

The E.C.S. Blue Point SteelHarp is tuned with three overtones

We believe that we are the only manufacturer of hand pans to offer this.

Tone fields generate overtones. These overtones are integrated into the process of tuning (normally, it is the octave and the next quint). Many musicians and tuners are aware of this fact. Nevertheless, there is another overtone in the audible area. This overtone has been explored for more than 20 years by E.C.S., and it was integrated into the process of tuning.

…by the way,

tuning with three overtones request twice the time for producing our Hand Pans
