    HAPI Drum Origin Product Videos:

    E Minor Pentatonic. Discontinued. A popular musical scale. Heavily used in classical acoustic guitar. This drum will sound great with the HAPI Slim C Major, A Minor, G Major, or F Major scales. It also pairs up with our HAPI Origin drum in the scale of D Minor. And it works well with our HAPI UFO drum which is in the full C Major scale.

    E Major Pentatonic. Very suitable for playing with guitar. The bells of the clock tower in London's Palace Westminster are tuned to this noble scale.

    E Akebono Pentatonic. The Akebono scale originates from Japan. It produces a meditative / exotic sound. It sounds great played with Western and Eastern instruments.

    D Minor Pentatonic. This scale produces a soothing meditative sound. It sounds great with the HAPI Slim C Major, A Minor, G Major, or F Major scales. It also pairs up great with our HAPI Origin drum in the scale of E Minor. And it works well with our HAPI UFO drum which is in the full C Major scale.

    D Major Pentatonic. D Major has been called the "key of glory" and is our lowest pentatonic scale. Works great with guitar when used with "drop D tuning". Also sounds great with tin whistles that are tuned in D.

    D Akebono Pentatonic  Discontinued. The Akebono scale originates from Japan. It produces a meditative / exotic sound. It sounds great played with Western and Eastern instruments.

      I am a very picky person and I must say I LOVE this drum! It is truly amazing. I think the E minor is the perfect octave for a very relaxing sound. I bought this drum under the deals section because it was "Damaged". When they say a minor paint flaw... they mean minor. I honestly could NOT tell there was any flaw at all. Great drum, very cool knowing not many people out there have such a unique drum as I now have. Worth the money.

      I am very HAPI with our HAPI DRUM

      I gave my mom a drum for her birthday and she loved it. She is having so much fun playing it! I had a lot of questions when I bought the drum, and the owners of the company were so helpful.
