Videos & Sound Models

 

The Harmonic is crafted in several sound models that can be found below or on our YouTube channel—tuned to produce clean and consistent results that we hope will bring you joy for years to come. Most of the demo videos are improvisations to give you a general sense of how each tuning sounds on the Harmonic. The Harmonic is built with a basic structure in a “zig-zag” layout and enables the player to work on a musical scale both as a solo instrumentalist and with a group. We craft instruments for the best possible resonance to last a lifetime. Our refined architecture and design focus on a balanced timbre, excellent tuning stability, tuned shoulder tones, and both note sensitivity and note strength. Different models will evoke different moods and feelings, and each harmonic can be defined as a particular sound model. We are proud of all of the sound models we build and tune; our goal is your satisfaction with a Harmonic in any tune.  

Andrés Gomm

Harmonics are created with beauty, quality, excellence, and material elements that transfer immaterial experiences into something you can feel. We believe it is perfect balance , with ease of play, that makes it such a great experience: when music makes way for expression. That’s remarkably beautiful.

Choosing a Sound Model (or scale)

All Harmonics look roughly the same, but they can sound vastly different from one another and are tuned in to a specific musical scale. Each scale has its own color and sound to evoke a wide variety of feelings. It is essential to choose a scale that speaks to your heart, your emotions, your spirit, and what brings you delight. We craft Harmonics in a wide variety of sound models that are tuned to produce responsive, consistent results, ease of playability, beautiful sustain, and the best possible resonance. Players free themselves from their minds and focus more on emotional, dynamic, and spiritual inspiration during their playing. Our offered Sound Models are inspired by an absolute passion for singing steel's beauty and resonance.

We offer many different Sound Models and scale types that can be organized into some simple categories: Minor, Major, Flavorful, and Chromatic. The following is a concise description of the emotional feel of each. 

Scale type: Minor

Minor sounding scales often feel mysterious, meditative, hypnotizing, and compelling. It can also feel driving, intense, and even suspenseful depending on how it is played. Minor scales are also among the most popular requests. 

Scale type: Major 

SaBye D/ A B C# D E F# A

Dorian F/ A# C D D# F G A#

Natural Prime F/ A A# C D F G A 

Melog-Selisir F/ A A# C E F G A

Mystic 12 C#/ (F F#) G# A# C C# D# F (F#) G# (A#)

Aegean 13 C/ (E F#) G B C D E F# G B C D

Major sounding scales are bright, cheerful, positive, and overall happy. Instruments with major scales tend to be inspirational, relaxing, and pleasant to play with. They're very well suited for meditative play or music therapy.

Scale type: Flavorful 

Hitzaz D/ A A# C# D E F A

Akebono F/ A# C C# D# F F# A#

Harmonic Minor E/ G B C D# E F# G

Hijaz 11 A2/ (E F) A A# C# D E F G A 

Romanian Hijaz 14 E/ (F# G) A B C D# E F# G A B C D#

Flavorful sounding scales typically stand out because of their cultural flavor and exotic sound. Middle-Eastern, Indian, medieval, and Japanese scales are some of the most common flavorful sound models. These types of scales are beautiful and magical. 

Scale type: Chromatic

HM15 C#/ (G) G# A (A#) (C) C# (D) D# E (F) F# (G) G# (A)

HC15 D/ (G#) A (A#) C (C#) D (D#) E F (F#) G (G#) A (A#) 

Chromatic sounding scales can play all musical notes and consist entirely of half steps or semitone intervals (all the black and white keys on a piano). The chromatic effect is fascinating and explored by many musicians of various styles.
