RAV Vast B Arabian Night

Regular price $671.00
Regular price $895.00 Sale price $671.00

The B Arabian Nights is the scale that will fill you up with Middle East flair. Get the feeling of the rustling sand of the deserted nights filled in with the sickly-sweet taste or the 1001 Night Tales.

The scale reproduces the Arabic Maqam – the traditional system of melodic modes and improvisation techniques. The Arabian Nights scale has its own very specific voice that differs from the rest of RAV drums (although it can have some sound similarities with B Onoleo). The tongues are tuned in 2nd, 3rd and 4th octave with the central Ding in B2. The B Arabian Nights is not a versatile scale but it adds a very unique flavour to your playing.

This step can be tricky for a beginner but the advanced players will find it captivating as it has a lot of half-steps and is more open-ended when you are playing. This is one of the most popular scales to record music videos and it’s definitely good for meditative play.
