Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [587, 2341, 1609, 713, 601] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [877, 1243, 1691, 1747, 2669, 2893, 2921, 3508]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 587 is 2633 

Scale 2633

Enantiomorph
