Recommended for beginner, intermediate, and advanced players. The HAPI Bell can be used in 3 different ways: as a bell/gong, as a tongue drum, or as a singing bowl.
Strike the side with our supplied felt mallet and the deep meditative
note of A2 is heard. This long sustained tone is complex and
mesmerizing. The tongues on the top are also excited when the bell tone
is struck. They ring in D Minor or G Major (depending on your scale
choice) producing even more rich harmonics. It comes with a self
centering rubber ball and string for hanging inside your home or outside
in the garden.
- Singing Bowl.
Turn the HAPI Bell with the rim facing up as a bowl and set it on a
table or use the wood disc stand and set in your lap. Our non-marking
rubber ring creates a stable base and allow it to sing freely. Use our
supplied wooden dowel made from plantation grown wood. Gently go around
the outside of the rim with the dowel and listen as a deep humming
grows. The bowl is tuned to A2 and with the supporting harmonic tones of
the tongues an even richer sound than regular singing bowls can be
heard. Try a steeper angle on the dowel and slightly more pressure to
produce an even higher singing tone for more variety.
- Tongue Drum.
Set the HAPI Bell on the wooden disc stand with post and it sits almost
magically hovering over the base. Play it in your lap or on a table.
Use your fingers or the supplied mallets to play the tongues. As the
tongues are played the bell tone will begin humming in the background.
It blends perfectly to create a beautiful soundscape of tone. The
tongues are arranged in an intuitive pattern and make it easy to explore
new musical horizons. While playing the tongues it is also possible to
strike the side of the bell and play the bell tone as well.It includes a
handbook that has instructions on use and mallet and hand playing
The HAPI Bell is available in 2 different pentatonic scales:
- D Minor: A3, Bb3, D4, E4, F4, G4, A4, Bb4.
- G Major: G3, A3, B3, D4, E4, F#4, G4, A4.
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.

- Love the versatility!
- Bought the Hapi Bell for my grandchildren 5, 9 and 11. They love it as a
gong, drum and as a singing bowl. They said it was the perfect gift and
their parents use it, too.
- I took my grandchildren to a drumming circle where they used someone
else's hapi drum and fell in love with it. For Christmas I gave them the
Hapi Bell that they like even more. It hangs like a gong, can be played
like the Hapi drum and can be used like a singing bowl. They LOVE it.
it is more versatile than the Hapi drum - larger and a little more
cumbersome but still portable in the bag.
