Where to buy Hang in Toronto

I wonder whether in Toronto there is any musical instrument shop where I can buy Hang from renowned manufacturer.
Any tip?
Thanks,

Re: Where to buy Hang in Toronto

From all the information that I have seen from different makers sites themselves, none of the "renowned" manufacturers are selling their instruments through retail outlets.  They all have either wait lists, or lottos and/or the occasional flash sale that pops up on their web sites.  Sometimes pans will show up on e-bay from "renowned" makers.  I know Pantheon steel will occasionally sell a handpan that way.

I won a chance to purchase a Symphonic Steel in their lotto and will actually be picking that one up on Nov 22nd.

Tzevaot handpans are available at some Sam Ash music stores here in the USA, but I'm not sure about Canada.  I have two of those that I am pretty happy with.  Dealing with them directly is better though.  You can get a better deal on the price.

Yes I remember being in your position.  These are a hand made instrument for the most part, so most makers can only produce these in very limited quantities.  Hence, the demand far outweighs the supply.  

You best bet to be able to play some of these pans might be in attending some of the festivals and handpan gatherings.  Some makers will bring pans to these events, and those attendees with pans will sometimes let others try them out.

I'm a try before you buy kinda person myself, especially with musical instruments.  So I understand the frustration.
