For whom this scale will work?
The E Low Pygmy can be a good choice for inexperienced enthusiasts who enjoy the particular effect that the E Low Pygmy provides. It is an excellent drum for meditative, spiritual and mental practices. This scale will become a fantastic helper in therapies that require total immersion into the sound.
Thanks to its super durable sustain, the E Low Pygmy creates a lot of space for you to fill it with sound. So you do not even need to plan a solid composition and note combination – just let the drum create the melody. Thus, simply repeat 2 or 3 notes allowing them to open up. Suchlike musical accompaniment will be a perfect background for your yoga session.
At the same time, the RAV Vast E Low Pygmy drum will be interesting for the pro-level players who have a musical background and are ready to experiment with a new sound. An experienced musician can try using different techniques with the drum. However, it will work better with a meditative playing style. If you want to record a meditation album, E Low Pygmy will be a perfect choice.
If you prefer a faster playing style, G Pygmy will be a better instrument in this case.
The advanced musicians will love using the E Low Pygmy for creating musical compositions. It works as a perfect background for high-tuned instruments like a violin as it will create a crazy contrast and fill in the cracks of whatever melody you are playing.
If you want to use the bass sound of the scale, but for some reason, you want to reduce the resonance longevity, buy an E Low Pygmy drum with a fabric case. That will reduce the sustain a little and give you a chance to play in a busking style.

The main difference is that it has a really low shamanic sound that brings your mind to a starry night in the middle of an African savannah.

The E Low Pygmy provides musicians with a great opportunity to unlock their potential and try something new every time they touch the instrument. It's an amazing scale to enter a jam session, preferably with higher-end instruments like mandolin or ukulele.
The E Low Pygmy scale is the only scale tuned in E in the RAV Vast collection, so it possesses a unique selection of notes from E2 to D4. Like all the other RAV Vasts, the notes have sympathetic resonance.
