The HAPI UFO (Unique Frequency Orb) is our larger, more versatile drum. Hapi Drum experimented for a year with different note layouts and scale arrangements. The note layout is a fine tuned arrangement so the best harmonics, ease of play, and resonance are all realized together. It sounds amazing when playing 2 or more tongues together to build chords. Made from specially selected musical steel using our custom molded shape. It is easy to play with infinite musical possibilities. With the isolating rubber feet located on the bottom of the drum you can set it on any surface to play. We think you will agree that the sound is out of this world!
Scale: The UFO Drum has 11 notes and is in the C Major Scale: D3, E3, F3, G3, A3, B3, C4, D4, E4, F4, G4. There are nine pentatonic scales in this single drum. They are C Major, D Minor, D Pygmy, E Minor, F Major, G Major, A Minor, A Akebono, A Pygmy. It also has one Hexatonic Scale, A Integral. The center note of C4 ties all the other notes together. The top shell of the drum is tuned to a higher harmonic support of C5. This helps unite the notes into a chorus of beautiful sound. C Major is one of the most commonly used key signatures in music. The white keys on the piano correspond to C Major, its relative minor is A Minor. C Major is often thought of as the most straight forward key owing to its lack of flats and sharps.
