Recommended for beginner, intermediate, and advanced players. A new innovative steel tongue drum shape with a great sound! The HAPI Omni Drum is designed to harness some features of a handpan (constructed from two half-shells of sheet steel glued together at the rim leaving the inside hollow and creating a distinct UFO shape). The Omni has its own unique sound and sustain, different than a handpan. We use a scale arrangement where the lowest note in the middle is below the outer side notes. This is similar to many handpan scales. This adds range and versatility to the scale. Handpans are tuned with an octave and a high 5th harmonic in each note. The Omni places a high 5th to the left of each low note. There is also a pair of octaves. Striking these notes together or right after one another creates a beautiful chord. This is an excellent tongue drum to learn hand playing techniques, which takes practice, similar to a handpan. It also comes with mallets so beginners can get a great sound right away! You can play any note combination in any order to produce a beautiful sound.
