Benefit

The best thing about double sided drums is that you get two drums in one.  This combination of Eb Big Bear and Db Big Bear allows you to switch back and forth between complimentary keys.  Do a key change in the middle of your jam by turning the drum to the other side. 

The Sun & Moon combines F mixotonic and Eb Hijaz for an amazing combination of light, positive, and jammy (Sun / F mixotonic scale) with dark and crunchy (Moon / Eb Hijaz scale). The feeling is awe-inspiring for both scales. 

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

Sun Side

The Sun side of the drum is the F mixotonic scale. This is a truly beautiful scale that brings bliss and calm. It is easy to play and good for collaboration with other musicians. While 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.

Moon Side

The Moon side of the drum is an Eb Hijaz scale. This scale 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. It's stimulating and interesting: the half steps build both interest and dynamics.

Fun Facts

The hijaz scale is the most common scale in North Indian classical raga music. This is the scale used on the "Moon" side of the Sun & Moon Double-sided Manastone Steel Tongue Drum. 

The F mixotonic scale is used in the Grateful Dead song "Fire On The Mountain". F is considered by sound-healers to be heart-opening.
