feeltone Monolina / Monolini A, C, F, D Travel Monochords

feeltone Monolina with U-stand

Lightweight and versatile, these two monochords are designed so everyone can play them but complex enough that musicians can use them for performances. Use for sound bathing, sound mediation or to accompany singing. And thanks to their light weight these monochords you can also use them therapeutically as “body monochords.”

What is the difference between the Monolina and her little sister the Monolini?  Both instruments have the same body length, come tuned to A,C,F or D,  and are tuned overtone, base note, fifth of overtone note.  Monolina has 34 strings and Monolini, 22 strings.

The Monolina also has 5 bridges that come with a template so you can easily create minor or major accents.

With 34 strings the Monolina is wider than the 21 stringed Monolini and therefore more resonant and voluminous in sound and vibration.

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:

"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.”
