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 / 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/ 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 / 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 / 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!

MERIDIAN 21" STANDARD
The perfect balance between size & the ability to accommodate large numbers of notes and/or low scales.
The Meridian 21" Standard instruments are available in the following scales:
MERIDIAN 18.5" TRAVELLER
Small & light enough to be comfortably carried on the player's back, yet large enough to allow for complex scales.
The Meridian 21" Traveller instruments are available in the following scales:
D Celtic Minor - 8
D / A C D E F G A C
A slightly lower version of the E Amara. A little darker, but with a wistful, open feeling. D minor without the minor 6th - giving a more hopeful feel.
F Low Pygmy
F / G Ab C Eb F G Ab C
A brooding, F minor based pentatonic that skips the 4th and 6th scale degrees. This gives a fairly open sound, without the darkness of the minor 6th.
G / B C D E G A B C D
An airy, G major based instrument, lacking the F# that would complete the G major scale. A great choice for beginners and more advanced players alike!
F# / C# D E F# G# A B C#
An F# minor instrument with the full natural minor scale. The minor 6th (in this case the D) gives a dark, mysterious quality.
A / C# D E F# A C# D E
An airy, happy A major pentatonic (5 note) scale. This instrument is well suited to light melodic explorations.
