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."

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."

Joanne Loewy DA, LCAT, MT-BC , read more  

 

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.

Here is what some of our customers have to say about the Monochord:

I am a Montessori teacher and own a monochord. I notice that the kids that I teach stop occasionally in their schoolwork, go over to the monochord and play, and then return with a feeling of calm to their work. Sometimes a child lays down on the Giant tongue drum and another one plays the tongue drum while a third child plays the monochord. For myself, I realized that the deep sound of the monochord grounds me while the higher pitch gives me upwards energy. I think the monochord is a precious instrument.

What our customers are saying:

"I have been working with the Body Monochord from feeltone ( the previous Model of the Monolini Serie) since over 6 years in therapeutic settings as a Music and Sound therapist. The cliental I am working with are persons with severe multiple disabilities, dementia patients and persistent vegetative state patients.

The new Monolini Quint Monochord offer me to further extend these areas of application. What convinced me above all else was the exceptional structural shape of the new models. ( Monolini, Monolina). This shape allows me and my client to position the instrument easily and exactly onto the chosen  part of the body, which is not possible with other kinds of body monochords.

Especially for people  with severe multiple disabilities , who can not assume a normal laying down position because of their handicaps, it is important to be able to position the body monochord exactly at a chosen body space with ease.

This monochord will not slide when it is played, which will happen with other models that I did try out. The built of the Monolini/Monlina  allows me to optimally play and place it on a variety of body sizes, forms and positions.

The Monolin Quinten monochord stands out with its brilliant sound. This small and lightweight monochord has an unusual large sound volume, which pleasantly surprised me. Because of its different tuning and variation of its string, it allows me to create different moods and effects with my clients.

The beautiful craftsmanship and wood of the instrument creates a wonderful 'look and feel' effect and haptic interactions. It is a joy and pleasure to work with this instrument.

I use the Monolini Quiten monochord in my treatments receptive and /or active  depending of the needs of my clients.  

The instrument is robust enough to allow my clients to actively play the monochord and create sounds that are deeply touching. The different strings allows the client to play a diversified and surprisingly multifaceted sound carpet. If you add little wooden sticks you can add even more variety, improvisation and sounds.

 I also use the Monolin Quitenmonochord with Sound journeys, sound meditations, therapeutical chanting and singing. The Monlini Quitenmonochors is a truly small and strong Allrounder.”

    by Hokema Kalimbas
    $131.00
    • Two 9 note kalimbas mounted together onto one block
    • The Twin is 30cm (12”) long and is fitted with two identically tuned sets of tines so the instrument can be played by either one or two persons simultaneously.
    • Resonance of the tones is picked up by the wooden corpus and can be felt by both players
    • Interactive instruments for two persons
    • The advanced kalimba player can play a wide range of other scales simply by retuning individual tone
    • tuned to A-minor

     


    Playing Solo


    Hold the Twin in both hands so that each thumb can reach one of set of tines. Now you can play the nine tones on both sides of the instrument, creating a full sound reach in overtones thanks to the identical tuning on both sides. When one tine is plucked it resonates with its twin on the other side.

    For the advanced kalimba player the Twin offers the potential of a wider range of scales by simply retuning individual tines. 

    Playing Duo 

    The driving motive for designing the Twin was our desire to create an instrument which could offer a shared experience of sound between therapist and patient, couples, family members, and friends.

    As the wooden body resonates, it is physically felt by both partners, and the identical tuning of the two sets of tines guarantees harmonious tone sequences and sounds.

    The kalimba stays in tune when being played but the tuning can be changed if desired. Tones on the two sides of the instrument which differ from but nevertheless harmonize with each other are thus also possible.

    feeltoneusa Hokema Kalimbas   B11 Kalimba Meldody

    Hokema - B11 Kalimba Melody

    by Hokema Kalimbas
    $81.00
    • 11 Tines precisely tuned to g-major suitable for playing countless popular tunes.
    • The B11 Melody is ideal for improvisation and intuitive playing.
    • Solid resonance corpus of American cherry wood
    • A large number of well know songs can be played
    • Ergonomically formed tines for easy playing with the thumb
    • add a fitted Kalimba Softbag to protect your Kalimba while on the road. 

    Kalimbas are metal-tined instruments which originated in southern Africa and which can be found there in countless variations.

    Our Kalimba B11 Melody is meticulously hand-crafted out of solid American black cherry wood. The surfaces is treated and polished with natural oils and waxes. The 11 tines are precisely tuned to the scale of G Major, suitable for playing countless popular tunes. The Melody is ideal for improvisation and intuitive playing.

    Tablature

    We positioned the long and short tines alternately to ensure ease of playing in accordance with acoustic criteria. The six shorter tines are bent -  with the ends raised above the longer tines - enabling easy reach by the thumbs.

    The eleven tines are numbered from left to right. The even numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 represent the longer tines and the odd numbers represent the shorter. Generally – for single-voice melodies – the left thumb (L) plays tines 1-6 and the right thumb (R) plays 6-11.

    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."
