After the successful launch of the original HAPI drum work immediately began on a larger, more versatile drum. A drum that would offer even more musical possibilities. It all started with designing a new mold that would provide more surface area for notes while barely increasing the weight. The patent pending note layout is a fine tuned arrangement so the best harmonics, ease of play, and resonance are all realized together. We think you will agree that the sound is out of this world! We proudly introduce to you the new HAPI UFO (unique frequency orb) Drum.
C Major is one of the most commonly used key signatures in music. The white keys on the piano correspond to C Major and its relative minor key, A minor, with no sharps or flats. The HAPI UFO drum has 11 notes and is in the C Major Scale: D3, E3, D3, G3, A3, B3, C4, D4, E4, F4, G4. The center note of C4 ties all the other notes together. The top shell of the drum is tuned to a higher harmonic support of C5. This helps unite the notes into a chorus of beautiful sound.

There are nine Pentatonic Scales possible from this single drum: C Major, D Minor, D Pygmy, E Minor, F Major, G Major, A Minor, A Akebono, A Pygmy.
There is also one Hexatonic Scale, A Integral.
All HAPI drums, including the UFO, are made from specially selected resonant steel in a custom molded shape. The UFO measures 15" wide by 8" tall and weighs only 12.75 pounds.
Isolating rubber feet on the bottom of the drum allow you to set it on any
surface to play.
