RAV Pan - F pygmy
The F Pygmy is the black pearl in the RAV Pan collection. Being the most complex scale to produce, this drum has experienced hundreds of hammer strikes to get its fantastic sound. The F Pygmy handpan is a perfect instrument for advanced musicians who can apply all their skills for composing and improvisation.
The sound of the scale is mellow and lush that resembles the ritual melodies of Pygmy tribes from Central Africa. For them, music is not just a sound. It is the way to communicate with nature gods. That is why RAV Pan F Pygmy is an excellent tool for therapy, stress release and meditation.
F Pygmy handpan is also unique due to the Helmholtz resonance effect it provides. It's a sound phenomenon that you can observe when blowing into an empty bottle (you can easily try it at home). You will reach the most massive effect with the F Pygmy scale when you tap the Ding with your flat palm. You get an intense, rich sound that compliments whatever you are playing.
It is definitely a pro-level scale. It will work great for solo playing, composing and jamming with other musicians. The professional handpan drum players will be impressed by the amount of sympathetic resonance that they will get with a single note of the F Pygmy. If other RAV Pans need a heavy hand to produce a strong sound, gentle touch will be enough for this one.
