Atlas is an artisanal business. All instruments are made by hand, and are limited in number. I work alone, on nitrided, stainless and ember steel. 

Atlas Calypso was born during the lockdown. The world went into a period of deep rest and reflection and it was in this stillness that many of us returned to our self care practices. The result was the creation of more resonant, stable instruments. It felt like magic. The workshop became the Cave of Wonders and every handpan was coming alive with the love and focus dedicated to each of them.

My journey into discovering scales and transcribing them on the handpan has been an enthralling one -from emulating the traditional major/minor modes to being able to create two scales together. I categorise scales based on the feelings they evoke - my bestselling scale is a C# Kurd - double sided - for lots of growth - with its wide range of possibilities of melancholic, joyful and hopeful melody possibilities. 

I continue to build instruments from my workshop in London, U.K. Please visit the Atlas Scales section for updates on new creations. 

Sound. How it can sculpt the landscape of my emotions, how it allows me to travel in time, and especially how it brings people together.

When I discovered the handpan a few years ago it was something I could only describe as enrapture. When I got round to acquiring one, I wanted to delve deeper. When I built my first instrument,  a nine 9 Romanian Hijaz; I was hooked.
