The Hang (German pronunciation: [haŋ];[1] plural form: Hanghang)[2] is a musical instrument. It is in the idiophone class. It was created by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer in Bern, Switzerland. The Hang is sometimes called hang drum, but the people who made the hang think that this is wrong and that people shouldn't call it that.[3]
