Bringing a very out of tune Handpan back to life

This is a pan that came to me last week in Austin. It was so out of tune that I couldn't figure out what the sound model was supposed to be which I am normally able to do just by finding the few notes that are correct and guessing the others from there. It is not the greatest instrument even after tuning but it is playable, the owner is very happy and it shows that even some very damaged handpans can be brought back to life.

Please forgive the odd video. I was in a rush to film the before and after and didn't properly frame the shots but the Audio is good.
