Laser Eye Surgery Hapi Drumming

By Staff in Categories: Laser Eye Surgery Info

After going trough some high tech laser eye surgery, being in pain and very sensitive to light, I hide away from the beautiful spring weather, listening instead of seeing. I was lucky enough to receive a Hapi drum just before the surgery, this one is in the D Akebono scale. The hapi is a steel tank with slots of different sizes cut out to create a range of tones. It sounds better being played more gently than done here, but at the time it felt appropriate to be banging away on it! A piece of cloth was used to dampen it slightly, preventing all the tones from ringing at once. Oh, and by the way, the fancy Hapi-light is not a standard accessory...
