Benefit

This is a truly beautiful scale that brings bliss and calm. It is easy to play and good for collaboration with other musicians. As with all Manastone steel tongue drums, all the notes are in scale. That means it's in perfect harmony with itself, so it's easy to make it sound goodWhile the 9 notes on the drum remain the same, it's unique because the combinations truly feel varied. So you don't really tire of hearing it. 

Music theory note: Same as the F Big Bear but with a major third, a half-step down.

Feeling

We created this drum for a truly harmonic experience that does not get old. The feeling from this drum brings calm, cheer, bliss, and upliftment.

Playability

The scale of this drum is one of the most playable scales because it is all in a major scale, meaning any combination of notes, or chords, is going to sound just right if not perfect. 

Fun Facts

A mixotonic scale was used in the Grateful Dead Song "Fire on the Mountain". See the video below! 

Design & Sound Characteristics: We offer a handcrafted instrument of beauty rich in sound & sight. The Manastone is designed with a taller chamber & the hole on top resulting in a richer acoustic tone, louder sound & wider range of notes than manufactured steel tongue drums. This full sound resonates with rich harmonic layers & volume that carries indoors.  You get the attributes of a larger handpan but in a smaller, more portable & less-expensive instrument. Value meets master craftsmanship.

Options to Float, Resonate, Hole Location, & Add Pickup: 

Floating: Normally, for other scales, we are able to make you a drum that floats if you select the hole to be on top of the drum and choose a chameleon finish. 

Tuning: The world wide standard tuning is 440hz for popular music and it is the sound your ears are used to.  If you intent to play with other melodic instruments, you may want to consider 440 so that you are easily in tune with other the other instruments.

You are also able to select tuning at 432hz if you prefer non-standard tuning.  432 is essentially a lower tuning, so each note would be slightly lower.  432hz tunings are often used in the sound healing world and are said to resonate perfectly with the earth, human body, and energy system.  Choosing 432 means other instruments would need to tune to your drum.  If you are interested in exploring 432hz for yourself, here's your chance!  

Hole Location: The default location for the hole is on bottom for Akebono because this scale doesn't resonate correctly when the sound hole is placed on top.  Sound hole on bottom is the original Manastone design and sounds just as good.  For the same reasons, Akebono does not work on double sided 18-note drums.  It only works with the sound hole on bottom in a 9-note model.  

Adding a Pickup: We can add a Piezo pickup to your drum for an additional $35.  The pickups sounds great and allow you to plug into an amplifier for a performance or to play with different effects like reverb and delay that can create an even bigger and thicker sound.  ***Adding a pickup means the drum can't float, but it's a great trade off.
