Strings and Tuning: 20 overtone monochord strings in c on one side, 30 bass strings in C on the other, and 4 tanpura strings (C, c, c, G) on the other side.

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.
