    HAPI Origin Tuneable Drum – Over 24 different scales possible in one drum!

    • Ideal for the musician who wants to change scales for different compositions, or for the casual drummer who wants to experiment with different scales.
    • Comes with an illustrated instruction booklet and 24 different scales to get you started!
    • Tune your drum to a huge range of pentatonic scales in E, E flat or D.
    • Try out Minor, Akebono, Pygmy, Egyptian, Blues, Major, Melog and more!
    • Play with your hands, or with the provided mallets for great sound.
    • Instead of purchasing many drums in different tunings, you can get one that will play in over 24!
    • The highest note possible is A in the 4th octave, the lowest note possible is D in the 3rd octave.
    • Comes with the standard 440 hz tuning. It can also be tuned to 432 hz tuning.

    You don’t even need a tuner. The booklet comes with a link to a free online tuner you can use with your computer. Or, if you prefer Mobile Apps for your phone or tablet there are many free ones, or very inexpensive ones (like iStroboSoft) available for all devices. Just make sure it is a “Chromatic” tuner and not just a “Guitar” tuner.

    How do I do it? It’s simple! Just reach inside your drum and slide the magnetic weight from the “hinge” or base of the note toward the tip. The further you go the lower it will make the pitch. Adjustable tuning is accomplished by adding or removing weight to the metal tongues. The tongue is cut away on three sides leaving the forth side attached to the drum body. This attached fourth side acts as a stiff “hinge” at the base of the tongue letting it vibrate to create a tone that can be heard when struck. For weights, we use very powerful magnets that can be slid along the underside of the tongue. Moving the weight adjusts the pitch of the tone. With no weight added, (the magnets are below the base of the tongue) your drum is now tuned to the highest scale it is designed for, E Minor. Sliding weighted magnets down the tongues lowers the pitch or frequency that it rings at. Many different lower scales are possible depending on how you adjust the weights on the tongues.

    Weights: The weights never need to be removed from the drum. Each tongue on the drum has been tested and matched with an ideal weight. They are selected based on range of notes required and best sound quality. They are pre-placed into the drum so you can start playing in E Minor right away!

    • This Hapi drum definitely exceeded my expectations! It is beautifully crafted and the sound is stunning.It is easily tuned to 432 hz. While playing, the sound resonates through my whole body. I plan to pick up the Slim or UFO a.s.a.p!
    • I am extremely pleased to have purchased the tuneable hapi drum origin version. I love the soft soothing almost bell tones in clarity coupled with resonant harmonics caused by the sympathetic vibration of the other tongues. It's hypnotic in its tonal quality and very pleasing to the ear. One does not get tired of the sounds this makes. The tuneable nature allows for infinite possibilities. I hope to incorporate it in my music at some point, but for now, I'm having a lot of fun using it alone.
    • I have been practicing on my drum since I got it in the mail. It's really easy to pick up and learn, but very difficult to put down afterwards! It has a lot of potential as an instrument! Being able to tune the notes is great, since it allows for even more room for experimentation and more versatility to fit any environment. I tuned it with relative ease to a C minor blues and have been sticking with that scale for some time, though I am definitely going to check out some other scales. I enjoy picking a place outside, breaking out my HAPI drum, and improvising a tune. The HAPI drum has a way with catching the ear of a random passerby and putting them in a good mood.

    I bought this to be able to provide background music during yoga/meditation for my students. I've experimented with some of my fellow instructors and they all think it's a lovely accompaniment for this. I enjoy the flexibility with this instrument of being able to experiment with the different tunings - each one has it's own unique quality. Thanks for making such a great, easily-accessible instrument!


    I just can't put it down!

    I can sum it up by saying WOW!!

    ... but if you insist: I ordered the drum during a war in my country, due to that there were internal delays and I must say that Grahm and his team accompanied me all the way through with their superb service and responsiveness till the Drum got to my hands. Thank you again folks! it's been a pleasure!!! The first thing I couldn't help but notice the second I opened the package was the excellent build quality of the drum, it is so robust with beautiful grainy Indigo-Blue finishing that gives tactile pleasure when touching it, that goes also to the durable custom carrying case, it came so handy and has such a great value for money that I don't see any point in buying a drum without it. The mallets are great to, but I only use those when tuning the drum which leads me to the next point. Tuning the drum turned out to be a breeze for anyone who has just a little bit of either musical-background or patience. I easily tuned my drum 3 days ago to E AKEBONO scale and stuck with it till now. I must say that prior the purchase I was kind of skeptic about the magnets, but those turned out to be very strong and "tune-reliable" and hold up their position perfectly - I say that as someone who traveled allot with the drum these days and excessively taking it in and out of it's bag and playing it. I have never played percussion instruments before, only played my guitar as an educated amateur - I had an immediate connection with the Drum and after very short time I discovered that it's like I had built in percussion techniques inside me that I wasn't aware of. The sound of the Drum is amazing, clean and deep with the slightest touch of the finger. I had to train about 2 hours on loosening my fingers and allowing them to bounce back from the drum's surface, the sound was so rewarding - the slightest touch can produce a really reach and clean tone. Till now I have composed two short pieces with the drum, the first one describes it's journey to Israel in the shadow of the war, I can play it very fast and accurate and I don't say it to brag - on the contrary - I had no prior percussion experience (if you don't count my car's dashboard) - So I guess that anyone with a sense and desire for melody beats would have the same Wonderful experience. I can conclude the whole purchase-service-satisfaction experience with one word - WOW!! Now, get out of here, I'm going to play my Drum. Sincerely, Rotem - Life-Coach Israel
