► Découvrez la sonorité de ce Hapi Drum en bas de page.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.
The Slim model is smaller than the Origin model and has a beautiful matt black "raw metal" appearance. It features 8 playing blades and comes in different tones.
This one is in pentatonic C Major and includes the following notes: C4 - D4 - E4 - Sol4 - A4 - C5 - D5 - E5 (► see diagram in the Image gallery & sound sample below).
This so-called natural range, without alteration (flat or sharp), is very popular, and this Hapi Slim goes perfectly with many other models of Hapi Slim, Origin or Bell (D minor, E minor, F Major, G Major, A minor, etc ...). It also sounds particularly well in duet with the Hapi Mini in C Major, also tuned in C but in the upper octave, as well as with the Hapi Ufo, tuned in the low octave.
