    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 four notes, the C scale is limited with only Major and Akebono as options. B, Bb, A 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, C Major. 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 C Major right away!

    Customer reviews:

    • I am a classically trained tabla player and multi percussionist and I ordered the HAPI drum after seeing videos of it on youtube and being enamored by the full bodied tone and pure round sound of it, much more than the HANG, which never appealed to me... but the key selling point for me was that it is tuneable to match almost any composition under the sun... I must say, this is a hand percussionist's dream, a beautiful, blissful sound which is easily tuneable and solidly built, looks good and classy, and the more im playing it and rehearsing with it and incorporating it in my percussive music, the more i realize the bang im getting for my buck... the bag is awesome too, and the mallets are great in creating the transient-less tone that is still staccato if need be... All in all, AMAZING!!! Thanks HAPI drum, what marvelous engineering!!!
    • I'm very happy with the C major Hapi tuneable drum that I recently purchased from you.I have found it easy to tune and have so far tuned it to A minor and A akebono as well as the original C. I'm not a musician though have learned piano and guitar as a younger person. With this drum I can make some very relaxing and celestial sounds and even a few simple tunes which sound very nice to myself and my partner. Many thanks - I love it.
