What is Baur&Brown really about?

Bill Brown, easily one of the most experienced pan tuners in Europe, has been building steel drums and the very popular Caisa since 1986 with great success.
Tim Baur has been building the Cosmicpan Handpan, the Om-Drum and the Baur&Brown Handpans. Now looking back at some 10 years of experience.
Both of them have been fascinated by the exploration and the building of musical instruments made of metal – especially the handpan – for years.
