The Koshi Chime is an authentic musical instrument, an original creation of high quality.
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. Suspended, it will play with the wind and carry you away in an unexpected melody.
With its resonance box made of bamboo, a material known since prehistoric times for its acoustical quality, the Koshi chime is deeper in sound and richer in overtones. It is primarily a musical instrument but by its sober and elegant design it invites itself into every decor. They have been used in body work, reiki healing, music recordings, sound healing and more. A beautiful and resonant addition to any sacred space!
Earth (Terra), Air (Aria), Fire (Ignis) and Water (Aqua) are the 4 melodies inspired by the 4 elements. Each has a specific magic timbre and can be played harmoniously with all the others.
Handmade by Kabir of Koshi in France, at the foot of the Pyrenean mountains.
