In late 2017, Mark began exploring lower note Bass Handpans and developing a chromatic set that extends from F#2 to G#3 to extend our current 6 handpan chromatic set. The following video is Josh demonstrating Saraz’s first Bass Saraz, which has a B2, D3, and E3. Josh is also playing a G Major Saraz. As you can hear, introducing lower tonic notes can take a single scale in far more directions.
The following are two videos with the same Bass Saraz containing Bb2, D3, F3 and G3. The first is in combination with a C Minor 9 Saraz.
The next video is the same Bass pan with Bb2, D3, F3, and G3 in combination with a D Minor 8 Saraz.
Videos coming soon of our next recently completed Bass Saraz with G2, A2 and C3. 😉
