Asian Sound Hapi Slim A Akebono

22.01.2017
Until very recently, I had no idea about even the existence of these instruments. On discovering them, I listened to a great many video/audio clips before deciding on the scale I wished to play. Not an easy task as they all sounded really beautiful. The Akebono Scale has a distinct 'eastern' sound, very meditative. I sensed that I would be able to create a decent sound using the hammers but I really wanted to be able to 'connect' with my drum by using my hands.

The drum arrived very quickly and was well packaged. It is a thing of simple beauty. Very tactile in its finish and very sturdy. The sound made by the mallets is really lovely and potentially very loud. I did not get the hang of the hand techniques straight away and was slightly disappointed.....but after a few days of perseverance and not as much 'effort,' I was able to produce a much better sound which was very rewarding! I feel I will be able to improve this with even more practice.

I must also add that it is very relaxing experience and completely calms the mind. It is also very addictive and so easy just to pick up at any time. I can see myself taking it to family and friends gatherings and am already planning a camping holiday with a group of like minded friends with musical interests. Thanks for your service.

Amazing sound!!!

This is my first steel tongue drum and I decided to buy it from Thomann (my favorite music shop!) It has a fantastic, dreamy & exotic sound (Akebono scale) with very nice & deep sustain! All in all, I'm happy with my new HAPI!! :-)
