The Hijaz scale is the most common scale in North Indian classical raga.
This drum covers an array of well-traveled tones and chord progressions. Like a moonlit camel ride, it can sound mystical, adventurous, action packed, and even spooky. It's a great drum for adding a bit of old world edginess to your surroundings.
Stimulating and interesting, the half steps build both interest and dynamics.
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 good.
We have created a steel tongue drum with this Hijaz scale so that you can bring the flavors of North Indian Raga right into your home. This drum feels like a portal to a far away land where the music is as spicy as the food. Connecting with other cultures through music is powerful.
We would rate this scale slightly more challenging to play due to the interesting half steps in this scale and it's minor sounding qualities. It is by no means difficult, but some ears may find it hard to piece together melodies with these different tones.
The Hijaz is one of our favorites and we highly recommend it to anyone who feels inspired by it.

Hello Noah, just got the drum today! Amazing, just amazing. I love it at the very first touch. Really well made and good tune. I'll recommend for sure to my musician community in Quebec City and everywhere I go play in this beautiful world!
I just got the drum, thank you so much, it's freaking sick. Keep up the great work! Thank you.
I got my F Big Bear yesterday and I can't put it down. It is absolutely beautiful. Family and friends all love it and I'm pretty sure they'll be potential customers in the near future. I played it in a public restaurant outside today and people couldn't believe what they were hearing. Many of them asked if it was electrically powered or amplified. I live in Miami, FL and I can't wait to show my city this drum. Thank you so much for your quality product. Well worth the money.
Dear Noah, Just wanted to say that I have received, and that this is a marvelous instrument with intense vibration coming out of it. I sincerely thank you for the job you have done. This drum is perfect and beautiful to look at. Thanks a lot again, I am seriously amazed by this little drum. It plays so intuitively too! Wow. Thanks!
