The C Golden Gate is one of the brightest scales in the RAV Vast line. It is also the only drum among RAV Vasts and RAV Pans tuned in C. It's the scale with a high voice tuned in the major mode that provides a positive mood to anyone who is listening to it.

The C Golden Gate works perfectly for the slow type of playing. The sound of this scale is engrossing, so melodically it's perfect for yoga or mental practice when the sound helps to delve into a special state of mind. If you are sophisticated in handpan music, you'll appreciate the meditative yet positive voice of this scale.

The C Golden Gate works well both for beginners and advanced musicians, but the voice of this scale is very peculiar. But once you feel the connection with the scale, it will become your favourite RAV Vast.

The C Golden Gate scale provides a peaceful and bright mood. The voice of this scale can sound a little bit nostalgic, pretty similar to the one that the A Marmara RAV Vast has. However, the A Marmara has a lower sound and is a little more melancholic (as it's a minor scale), while the Golden Gate has a cheerful major sound. So if you are thinking to buy one of these scales, you are pretty sure to love (and dreaming about buying) another one as well.

The C Golden Gate notes are tuned in the 3rd and 4th octave. This scale is relative to the Lydian scale (very popular in guitar music) as it contains similar notes (C D E F# G A B). It starts with the C Major and then goes into a Lydian mode. The two B's in the C Golden Gate scale provide the major sound to it.

The C Golden Gate has a lot of unique diads and triads available on it (that are not present on many other RAV scales), therefore this scale has a lot of potential for songwriting on it.

In the handpan world the C Golden Gate is the big brother of the Equinox handpan scale (which has the notes (E) G B C D E F# G B, similar to the C Golden Gate (C) E G B C D F#4 G B), but the Ding tuned in C is a total game-changer.

What RAV Vast scales work well with the C Golden Gate? There are two good pairs for the C Golden Gate in the RAV store. The Golden Gate has some similar meditative vibes just like A Integral. These two Vasts will sound in harmony. The E Low Pygmy will also create a nice duet with the C Golden Gate.

This scale pairs the cello perfectly as its first string is tuned in C as well.

For whom this scale will work

The C Golden Gate will actually work well both for beginners and advanced players. It's a great scale to learn and practice. It provides the musician with a great toolkit for that without being too tricky. The C Golden Gate has only 1 halftone (between F# and G4) so it's quite easy to handle. This scale can be played both with your fingers and the mallets if you use a light touch. If you are dreaming to start playing the RAV Pan, the C Golden Gate can become a perfect stepping stone on your way to acquiring the handpan. It is also one of the affordable scales (check out the frequent sales and special promos on the website).

This scale is perfect for improvisation as each note sounds pretty well suited to the previous one creating a harmonic melody, so you don't even need to know any particular pattern.

Do you like a "yogic" slow-mo playing technique? This scale was born to be played slow and meditative melodies, but also works well to play allegro.

With this scale you'll be able to create some certain energy and emotional feel. If you are a meditation tutor or a yoga teacher, you can make a session unforgettable, accompanying it with playing the C Golden Gate RAV Vast. This scale has a really bright sound that will work perfectly for yoga. It's also great as a personal meditation tool.

But the C Golden Gate scale can not only be used by musicians but also by the specialists in the field of different mind & body therapies, like the floatation therapy. This therapy was designed to provide profound relaxation, pain relief, mental healing and better sleep. You are placed into a special tank with warm and salted water where you float for an hour speechless and relaxing. The floating can be accompanied by playing the relaxing and soothing C Golden Gate RAV Vast to enhance the effect of the therapy and provide you with an unforgettable experience.
