The Shiva Transverse Flute, follows the line of the bansuris, inspired by the oriental Hindustani tradition, with the differential of the scale of typing the notes. To facilitate improvisations in the creation of mystical (oriental) melodies, we adapt the natural major scale to the double harmonic major scale, known by several names: Hitzazkiar (Turkish name), Byzantine, Greater Gypsy, and in India it is called the Bhairav scale in the North. and Melakarta in the South (Carnatic music).
The double harmonic scale has radial symmetry or symmetry around its root or central note. This scale (and its modes as the Hungarian minor scale) is the only seven-note scale (in temperament equal to 12 tones) that is perfectly balanced ; this means that when your pitches are represented as points in a circle (whose complete circumference represents an octave), your average position (or “center of mass”) is the center of the circle.
