C# RagaDesh

C# / G# B C# E# F# G# B C#

An Indian inspired C# major pentatonic scale that is uplifting in feeling. A resonant, low scale perfect for meditation as well as melodic play.

E SaBye

 

E / A B C# D# E F# G# B 

A sweet, E Major instrument that lends itself to melodic playing. The scale starts from the 4th of the scale and gives a bright quality to the instrument.

D Hijaz

D/ A C D D# F# G A C D
A popular Middle Eastern scale, perfect for those enjoying oriental melodies and odd rhythms. D Hijaz is a spicy instrument with a strong character.

F# Romanian Hijaz 9

 

F# / B C# D E# F# G# A B C# 

This instrument represents the F# Harmonic Minor scale. Voiced from the second tone field, it gives a C# Hijaz scale. This is a complex and spicy instrument. 

E Amara

 

E / B D E F# G A B D
An E minor instrument with a scale that skips the 6th scale degree. This gives an open feeling, that is not as dark or brooding as the full natural minor scale. 

G Giza

 

G / Bb D Eb F# G A Bb D

A spicy scale rooted in G harmonic minor, similar to a Hijaz scale. Less forgiving for beginners, but with practice it reveals its hidden musical delicacies!
