The pentatonic modal family [1225, 665, 595, 2345, 805] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [859, 1459, 1643, 1741, 2477, 2777, 2869]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1225 is 613

Scale 613Scale 613, Ian Ring Music Theory


Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 1225 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 613
