RAV was invented by a Russian engineer, Andrey Remyannikov in 2013, inspired by handpans, and turned out to become inimitable among other similar instruments. Andrey’s first 100% hand-crafted prototype was born, it was a homage to the Hang, but with a different look and totally unique sound.
He adopted the name RAV after handpan forum members and the drums’ very first owners took his full name - Remyannikov Andrey Vladimirovich - and gave the instrument this nickname.
The RAV is such an instrument, which is perfect for sound healers, yoga and meditation practitioners, music enthusiasts and musicians. Explore the sounds of various drums below to find the right one for you.
