About Us

Isthmus Instruments was founded in 2013 by Jenny Robinson. Isthmus creates musical instruments out of steel, most widely described as “Handpans”. Our mission is to build beautiful instruments and grow our community.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Our Instruments

Every instrument we make is hand-built. Through theoretical research and practical experimentation, Isthmus Instruments has developed an instrument-building process that can turn a simple sheet of metal into an acoustic work of art.
