How was the HAPI Drum created?
Hapi Drum is owned and operated by partners Grahm Doe and Tricia Kelly. Their passion for steel instruments began with the purchase of their first Hang. The beautiful sound of steel captivated and inspired them. With their previous experience creating musical instruments (didgeridoos), they began experimenting with steel. They discovered Dennis Havlena and his research on using steel tongues to create a similar kind of sound. Inspired by his proof of concept they set out on a prototyping journey. They began to experiment with tongue shapes, drum body sizes, sound ports, dampening materials, and different steel types. After months of work they had their first design, the HAPI Origin. Since then their product line has expanded to include the HAPI Mini, Slim, Bell and UFO Models.
