THE IDIOPAN STORY
ALL TONE, NO TANK™
The very first Idiopan was created by musician Bret Hutchinson in 2010. Inspired by Dennis Havlena’s tank drum, Bret sought to craft a tunable percussion instrument he could incorporate into his musical projects that would produce a pure, clear tone with no “tankiness”.
After much experimentation, Bret developed the first and only steel tongue drum capable of tuning to hundreds of scales with its unique magnet tuning system — providing warm, rich, pure tones ideal for harmonizing with any instrument.
Bret later teamed up with Max Kundrat of EnSoul Music Designs to develop a full line of high-quality, tunable steel tongue drums.
