Meet the team


Jenny Robinson  


Everyday I am committed to this vision; To connect people to instruments that they truly love. I founded Isthmus Instruments, LLC in 2013 after years of building and research, as the world’s first women-owned and operated handpan company, located in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. I have professional training in science & machining and a lifelong and abiding love for playing and appreciating music. These qualities help me build high-quality instruments with precision and passion.

"I still remember the day that I first heard a handpan. At that moment I just knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life around these amazing instruments.

I am proud to work and learn from a maker like Jenny because of her incredible talent, hard work ethic, and the drive and desire to improve every single day."
