Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Antara 13 note pan pipes

The Percussion Plus Peruvian pan pipes contains 13 pipes of varying length secured with an attractive woven band. This single row style of pan pipes is known as an 'Antara' and is tuned diatonically.

The wooden pan pipes are played by blowing horizontally across the top of the instrument to create a flute like sound and are extremely popular in folk music, particularly from southern America and central Europe.

Also known as Zampoña, these pipes are handmade in Peru using sustainably sourced materials and traditional methods.

See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments not toys and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.

Manufactured using traditional techniques

Every single one of these pan pipes are handmade by an independent maker, using traditional methods and techniques. The cane used is sustainably sourced and creates a brilliant sounding instrument. The pipes are bound together with vibrant and colourful rainbow band that, although simply put together, is rather striking and effective.

How to play

Blow across the top of each tube to create a sound, using a similar technique that you would for a flute. Although the technique used and sound created can be likened to a flute, the breathy quality and easy to learn nature of the instrument make it perfect for all types of folk music.

These panpies from Percussion Plus are a fun instrument to play and learn about in schools, to be performed with in folk bands of all abilities, and more.
