Octave Meditation Monochord MO-600
Elegant double-sided, 60 string monochord with rich sound and overtones. Can play in upright or horizontal position.
Strum on the strings close to the bridge 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.

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.
