F# Low Pygmy 21 - Ember Steel

Top: F#3)  G#3  A3   C#4   E4  F#4  G#4  A4  C#5  E5  F#5  G#5

Bottom: (D3) (E3) (B3) (D4)  (B4) (D5) (A5) (B5) (C#6)


The F# Low Pygmy is one of our favorite models of extended scales. It is a pentatonic scale on the top side of the instrument, meaning there are only 5 different notes. This creates a certain mood which sounds very ethereal and at the same time comforting. The bottom notes extend the range of the scale but also add the 2 missing notes to create the full diatonic F# minor scale.



This makes the top side of the instrument very intuitve to play but with the extension of the bottom it also allows for infinite possibilties for making compositions and playing meditatively whilst being able to change the mood you are in. At the same time it is an A major instrument if you start from the A.




A side note: the patina of most ember steel handpans is not stable and the instruments can change their color. This does not affect the sound or tuning and is no problem, it creates a vintage look.
