The word "pentatonic" comes from the Greek word pente meaning five and
tonic meaning tone. It is a musical scale that consists of five notes
within one octave. Because of their arrangement, pentatonic scales are
often used to introduce beginners to music.
*This is the same scale on our Aura Drum in A Minor. The Aura Drum has slightly stronger high notes. The Slim Drum has slightly stronger low notes.

C Major. This is the highest drum scale we offer. It ranges from C4 (middle C) to E5. C Major is a very popular musical scale. It has no flats or sharps. It is also known as a "natural" scale. This drum sounds great with the HAPI Slim A Minor, G Major, or F Major scales. It also pairs up with our HAPI Origin drum in the scales of E Minor and D Minor. And, of course, it sounds wonderful with our HAPI UFO drum which is in the full C Major scale. This HAPI Slim is an octave higher than the HAPI UFO drum.
A Minor. A widely used musical scale. A Minor is the relative Minor of C Major and known as a "natural" Minor. Sounds great with Native American flutes in A.

- I've had my hapi drum for just over a week now, I practice for hours
each day and it still amazes me the different sounds I get out of it.
The shipping was super fast, 5 days from California to Ontario. I would
give the drum a 10/10 I love the look, the sounds, the feel. Would
recommend to anyone! So happy with it.
- I purchased my hapi slim C major to balance out my hapi slim A minor and
my D minor origin. these 3 percussion instruments are working
beautifully together. I am looking forward to doing business with you
again when you come out with your new hapi.
