RAV Pan - D Major
This handpan has a light, vague, and airy sound. Hearing its melodies arouses a joyful feeling – the same that you have while listening to your favorite song.
D major is one of the most popular and recognisable scales in music history. It gained its glory during the Baroque period. The melodies played on instruments with D major tuning sounded carelessly cheerful and entertained the audience.
Like the other RAV Pans, the handpan has a bronze-colored body of high-quality steel with shiny golden dimples. It also has the Heartbeats air diffuser on the bottom, redirecting the vibrations and enhancing the audio waves inside. This provides a more balanced and more robust voice to the instrument. Always make sure to keep the correct position of the Heartbeats. The Heartbeats should always be opened while playing to provide the proper sound. The closed position is only applicable when storing and transporting the drum.
Although this scale replicates the D Major RAV Vast's layout (except the Ding), which is one of the easiest scales to deal with, the D Major RAV Pan is quite a tricky drum. Thus, we recommend this pan drum to seasoned musicians with a solid background who know music theory and tend to compose melodies. So, if you are an experienced handpan 9 notes player seeking to buy a great tool for composing and playing together with other musicians, the D Major RAV Pan is your perfect choice.
