    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. While this drum covers three notes, the E scale is limited with only Major, Akebono and Pygmy as options. E Flat and D have all scale options (Minor, Akebono, Pygmy, Egyptian, Blues, Major, Melog) are possible.

    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 Major right away!

      Customer reviews:

      • 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.
