C# Pygmy 17 - Ember Steel

C# Pygmy 17 - Ember Steel

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

Bottom: D3 E3 B3 D4 B4 C#5 D5 E5


The C# Pygmy 17 is a very intuitive model, sharing the same simple layout as the C# Pygmy on the top side but with added range on the bottom side as well as filling up the gaps in the scale. The model has all the notes of the F# minor scale, which you can play by starting on the F#3 (the first note of the circle. Therefore it shares many of the same notes and playing possibilities as the F# Low Pygmy models. However, because of the C#3 centre note, you add a bunch of possibilities in terms of moods and add a bit of depth on the low end.




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.
