The Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument, an original creation of high quality. Hand made in our workshop at the foot of the Pyrenean mountains, each chime is the result of meticulous craftsmanship. Eight chords are welded with silver into the metal plate at the base of the resonance tube. Precise tuning creates a play of clear tones that is rich in overtones.
The overtones of the shorter chords gradually dominate and become fundamentals, thus forming a circular tone range. Move the chime gently holding it by its cord: the crystalline relaxing sound may leave you in quiet wonder.
Statue Size: 10.5" Tall x 7.5"
Pairs wonderfull with a D-minor 6 note Tonge drum
Small and lightweight this six note Tinka Tong is a lot of fun to play. It emits a clear, melodic tone and is a great instrument for easily combining rhythm and melody. This drum speaks in the language of forests and trees! With a handy grip hole at the bottom, it can be played with one hand. Dimension 12 X 4.8 X 3.6 inches
Pairs wonderfull with a Equinox Zenko drum from Metal Sounds
The drum can be played by both beginners and experienced musicians alike. The Equinox has a B minor original scale. A G3 in the center gives a deep bass that can be used as a pivot. This scale includes a major mode in the key of C (with a 3rd in E). Its versatility makes it suitable for creative compositions and/or jam sessions.

This Spacedrum has the distinction of having 8 notes placed on a large diameter. Its scale starts with a C3 and ends on F4. Greater than conventional models 8 notess, with a diameter of 60 cm, it can play on noteswith remarkable bass.
This model is aimed both at experienced musicians, as conscious people play on a handpan offering deep sounds and vibrations. It can be put on a stand or on your laps despite it's a bit larger than its little brothers.
This scale does not change the arrangement of notes and can play alternately as the other models in 8 notes.
Thanks to a long research & development work in partnership with an engineering high school we’re happy to release the 4th generation Spacedrum, made out of a special stainless alloy. The properties of this special alloy are particularly adapted for the outdoor playing: totally rustproof, even in the extrem climates (see shores, tropics...), hard enough to keep the tuning for years (in normal conditions of use). Added to that, the Spacedrum Evolution (4th gen) develops more sustain and more sound volume while respecting the Spacedrum original sound.
This instrument is fragile and needs to be protected when it's not played. Our bags are specially designed for a good protection of the Spacedrum.

Sound Notes: Strum on the strings close to the bridge of the monochord to create sounds rich in over-tones. Strum in the middle and the sound is more even. At first it seems like you’re hearing only one tone, but as your mind relaxes you can notice a full variety of tones and overtones that weave a wistful and subtle melody. It creates a sound experience much like that of a gong.

Compare tunings : Monochord or Tambura
Tambura Tuning: If you string the strings evenly with your fingers you will create overtones which have rich harmonics. The tunes D d d A repeat 10 times in the 40 strings creating a rich sound environment. It embraces and holds you in a relaxing environment without any prior training. monchair with tambura tunings is great for places where the chair is exposed to new people all the time, who want to play and enjoy the Singing Chair with each other. Great to use in settings like offices, hotels, wellness and care facilities.
Monochord tuning: allows you to create a more nuanced play. The strings are tuned to D and the higher octave d. This allows the player more creative possibilities to excite the many finer and subtle overtones. You can vary the pitches and focus on the deeper tones in D which have more vibration or string d to create more overtones.
Reviews from our Monochord Chair Customers:
"The feeltone Monchord Singing Chair has served as an important instrument to the patients we serve at The Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center.
There are numerous patients who have benefited from the breath glissando release sounds I use accompanied by the string glissando-from low to high and then absorption…where the strings resonate and saturate through the warm wood into the body. In a general way, this warm up takes only about five minutes and creates “flow” and a sense of “homeostasis” or “self integration” or “synchrony between the body-mind-spirit” as one of my pianist musician players often says.
There are two patients who have particularly benefited from the vibration...please go to our blog to read more about the study."

Claudia Dall, a speech therapist, tested our monchair for a year in her private practice on the island of Usedom. Here's what she had to say:
" I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Ingo, Martina and the team from feeltone that helped me realize my dream of finding an elegant, comfortable office chair and a versatile therapeutic sound instrument, all in one. Over the years, I have incorporated sound in my practice for tonal regulation, body awareness and sensory perception. monchair both doubles as an office space saver and a therapeutic vibrational treatment chair for my patients. Because of its space saving feature I am able to also use the overtone rich Monochord instruments while the client is in a seated position. Playing them monchair allows me to quickly get my clients into a relax state without the need to change position. The harmonious sounds support my work with more ease and brings joy to myself and my clients. They confirm this experience with their feedback and their radiant and beaming faces after each session. "

What our customers are saying...
"The Monolini is a beautifully crafted intuitive instrument that is perfect for sound healing with vocal improv groups because it creates a magical music bed over which delicious harmonies can be created. It so easily produces enchanting overtones that a person playing it can simultaneously sit in a meditative state and keep the strings sounding with little effort. People are incredibly drawn to this lovely portable monochord whenever I give workshops."
- Joule L'adara, founder of Sounding Circles LLC
"As a music therapist, I know about the incredible therapeutic value of sound and vibration. I uses the monochord to begin and end her yoga classes, massage therapy sessions, and guided meditations. Because we synchronize with our sonic environment- a principle called "entrainment"- the monochord is a powerful tool that induces a parasympathetic response, reducing heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, pulse and brainwave activity. It facilitates a shift from the busy thinking and doing states to a calm feeling and being state, thereby promoting relaxation and preparing her clients to enter and receive deep healing through yoga, bodywork and meditation."
- Katarina Zech, Board Certified Music Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapist, Registered Yoga Teacher, and Meditation Guide.

What our customers are saying:
"The Soundwave is such a complete and powerful instrument. The four notes of the tongue drum each address another part of the body. The big tongue drum therefore is a perfect instrument to start a session with. It allows you to 'feel' and tune into the person. By playing the tongue drum you can invite your customer to slow down his breathing and heart rhythm. A steady drum rhythm can bring you and/or your customer in a trance. The monochord is very different from the drum. It creates smooth, rich sound waves that take you on a journey within. You may experience a deep sense of relaxation, see shapes or colors, hear choirs, flutes, horns or other kinds of instruments or feel deeply rooted emotions. I often use the soundwave for people with emotional stress. It helps opening up doors, gates previously kept locked."
- Patrik Niels - soundtherapist - (Belgium)
