A cousin of the Hang and the Caisa, the H.A.P.I Drum (Hand Activated Percussion Instrument) is a completely intuitive melodic percussion instrument that can be played by anyone, even without any prior musical knowledge. It consists of a metal barrel in which sound blades are cut, and it can be played either directly with the hands or with suitable sticks. This Mini model is the latest addition to the range. As the name suggests, it is also the smallest of all Hapi Drum models. It has the same look as its big brother Ufo, a beautiful shiny copper hammered finish. It has 8 playing blades and plays a scale of C major pentatonic, comprising the following notes: C4 - D4 - E4 - Sol4 - A4 - C5 - D5 - E5 (► see Sound samples below). This so-called natural range, without alteration (flat or sharp), is very popular, and this Hapi Mini goes perfectly with many models of Hapi Origin or Slim (D minor, E minor, A minor, F Major, G Major, etc ...). It also sounds particularly well in duet with the Hapi Ufo, also tuned in C but one octave below. Dimensions ● Diameter: 20.5 cm ● Height: 14 cm ● Weight: 1.5 kg ✚ Sold in its padded black nylon protective cover fitted with a shoulder strap, accompanied by its pair of specially adapted rubber-tipped mallets and short handle. Ultra-easy to transport thanks to its small footprint, the Mini has a very bright sound and has nothing to envy of the larger models in terms of its sound power!
