Koshi Wind Chime - Aqua / Water

55.00

Each Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument, an original creation of high quality and the result of meticulous craftsmanship, handmade at the foot of the Pyrenean mountains in France.

With its resonance tube made of bamboo veneer, a material known since prehistoric times for its high acoustical quality, the Koshi chime is deep in sound and rich in overtones. Eight metal chords are welded with silver into the metal plate at the base of the resonance tube, and a precise tuning technique creates a play of clear tones. The overtones of the shorter chords gradually dominate and become fundamentals, thus forming a circular tone range.

The four available melodies, Terra (Earth), Aqua (Water), Aria (Air) and Ignis (Fire) were inspired by the four elements. Each has a specific magic timbre and can be played harmoniously with all the others. The diameter of the cylinder is approx. 2.5” with a height of approx. 6.5”.

The crystalline relaxing sound of the Koshi chime is sure to carry you away and leave you transformed in quiet wonder.
