Reviews and examples
The B Major has a dreamlike voice. It takes you away to a fantasy world and provides the feeling of confidence that everything is gonna be alright. The main peculiarity of this scale is a bright uplifting aspect which is more temperate than the one that the D Major provides but still sounds in a way that makes us smile and stay positive.

The B Major is the RAV Vast’s interpretation of the classical B Major scale. The Ding is tuned in B2 and the resting steel tongues are tuned in 3rd and 4th octave. If you look at the note progression of the B Major, you’ll see a lot of accidentals. Still, it’s a very harmonious scale as it only has one halftone (A#3-B3).
