Hand made at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains, each Koshi chime is the result of meticulous craftsmanship.
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. The tube, made in our workshop, consists of bamboo veneer treated with natural oil.
Koshi chimes come in four tunings. Each has a specific magic timbre and can be played harmoniously with all others. Move the chime gently holding it by its cord: the crystalline, relaxing sound may leave you in quiet wonder. Outside, as it plays with the wind it will carry you away on an unexpected melody.
