The scale (also called tuning) is determined by the combination of different notes present on the handpan. There are many scales: cheerful, dreamy, meditative, lively, exotic, and so on. Scales can be broadly categorized as minor, major, African and Oriental. In this blog, "Choosing the Right Handpan Scale" you'll find a lot of information about various scales.

Google Review Chaya® handpan:

(Google translation from Dutch)
Thomas Kwakernaat: “The service and reception are nice, you get plenty of space to ask questions and get honest answers. The Chaya that I had made in 432 Hz is in my favorite key of C harmonic minor. With the new type of steel that was used, I think the Handpan sounds significantly better than my original pan. Thnx!!!”
