Taking the D Major RAV Pan is like buying a ticket to a very good music concert. This handpan has a light, vague, and airy feel to it and arouses the feeling of listening to your favorite songs. This drum is the recreation of the classic D Major scale in the RAV Pan version. D Major scale is one of the most frequently used and definitely one of the most known scales in music history. This drum was made to pair the D Major RAV Vast as both drums have the same note layout.

To keep the perfect sound of this amazing instrument safe we provide a RAV Pan HardCase made of special protective material as a compliment when you are purchasing the RAV Pan.
The D Major RAV Pan is full of bright, happy, and joyful mood. It will sound very harmoniously especially if getting in sophisticated and experienced hands.

The note layout of the D Major RAV Pan is based on Lydian mode (G – A – B – C# – D – E – F# – G). Named after the ancient Kingdom of Lydia, this mode is one of 7 classic Greek modes that are considered to be alpha and omega of music theory.

The Lydian scale is the second major scale with raised 4th note that provides an entirely new sense of movement through this change. The D Major RAV Pan note layout is based on the Lydian scale with a repetitive A-note (the second bottom note, and the top note).

The Ding of this handpan is tuned in D3, the tongues are tuned in 3rd and 4th octave. It has the only halftone between C#4 and D4.

The D Major scale was commonly used in European classical music and became popular thanks to the traditions of Baroque violin music. The D Major scale is usually associated with triumphant, victory-rejoicing holiday songs and Hallelujah heaven-rejoicing compositions. However, the D Major RAV Pan is based on the Lydian mode and such instruments are usually performed at a slower tempo. In addition, the softness of the handpan's voice provides a more soothing effect upon the overall sound of the instrument. As a result, you create a moderately joyful, uplifting sound without the feel of triumphant marches. The note variety of the D Major RAV Pan also provides you with an opportunity to play songs in a relative B Minor mode. Thus, this drum is just perfect for creating "pop" handpan songs.

Like the other RAV Pans, the handpan has a bronze-colored body made of high-quality steel with shiny golden dimples. It also has the Heartbeats air diffuser on the bottom which redirects the vibrations and enhances the audio waves inside. This provides a more balanced and stronger voice to the instrument.

Always make sure to keep the right position of the Heartbeats. The Heartbeats should always be opened while playing to provide the proper sound. The closed position is only applicable when storing and transporting the drum.

For whom this scale will work


Although this scale replicates the layout (except the Ding) of the D Major RAV Vast, which is one of the easiest scales to deal with, the D Major RAV Pan is quite a tricky drum. Thus, we recommend this pan drum for experienced musicians with a solid musical background who are serious about music theory and composing. If you are an experienced handpan player looking for a professional handpan drum for sale, a great tool for composing and playing together with other musicians, the D Major RAV Pan is your perfect choice. We do not particularly recommend this scale for meditation due to its very uplifting sound.

It's challenging enough to make an interest of you, while the D scale itself is very versatile and that's what makes pairing this RAV Pan with other RAV drums, steel tongue drums, handpans, percussions and classic instruments like the piano or guitar quite an easy deal.

If you are a sophisticated musician, you'd be able to pair the D Major RAV Pan with pretty any RAV Pan. As for the RAV Vasts, it will sound particularly good with the D Major, B Celtic Minor and B Celtic Double Ding, B RUS, B Kurd and E Low Pygmy RAV Vasts.
