The smallest and most compact HAPI drum. These little ones have a big sound at a small price!
It's so easy to bring along your Mini HAPI Drum anywhere you go. Play it in the park, bring it over to a friends house, or take it camping. Fits in day packs for easy travel and even has its own optional padded bag for transport and storage.
This drum uses the same eight note layout as the larger Hapi Drum models which adds harmonic tones to each note when played. A bottom port helps let the sound out to fill the room and rubber feet allow it to be set on any surface for play.
Attractive hammered copper powder coat finish inside and out. It is a durable protective layer for your drum that adds a cool "stone" finished texture.
Special! Travel bag included! (Normally $20).
Available in two different pentatonic scales: C Major or D Akebono
- C Major (C4, D4, E4, G4, A4, C5, D5, E5)
- D Akebono (D4, E4, F4, A4, Bb4, D5, E5, F5)
C Major ranges from C4 (middle C) to E5. C Major is a very popular musical scale. It has no flats or sharps. It is also known as a "natural" scale. This drum sounds great with the HAPI Slim A Minor, G Major, or F Major scales. It also pairs up with our HAPI Origin Drum in the scales of E Minor and D Minor. And, of course, it sounds wonderful with our HAPI UFO drum which is in the full C Major scale. The HAPI Mini C Major is the exact same scale as the HAPI Slim C Major. The Slim has stronger bass response but the Mini has a much smaller shape and strong mids to high. Bag not included.
D Akebono The Akebono scale originates from Japan. It produces a meditative / exotic sound. It sounds great played with Western and Eastern instruments.
Each Drum comes with a pair of mallets that are specifically handmade for this drum. It also includes a handbook that outlines playing techniques. The handbook has mallet and hand playing techniques, as well as practice exercises. Bag not included.
