The essence of Ayasa Instruments

At the heart of Ayasa Instruments lies a fascination with Eastern philosophy and yogic practices. Inspired by these influences, founder Ralf van den Bor chose the name Ayasa, which means "iron" in Sanskrit. Iron, used as a base material, represents the strength and durability found in every instrument created by Ayasa Instruments. In 2013, Ralf began his journey with steel, spending 18 months researching and developing prototypes to give birth to the Adiyuga series.

The art of creation

At Ayasa Instruments, each instrument is crafted with meticulous attention to detail and sound quality. Handpans are crafted from sheets of iron-derived steel, carefully cut and formed to achieve the perfect shape and resonance.

The craftsmen at Ayasa Instruments are masters in the art of transforming steel into instruments of exceptional beauty and musicality.
