The Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument, an original creation of high quality. Hand made in a workshop at the foot of the Pyrenean mountains, each 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.
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.
The sounds are most wonderful for children, but chimes should be kept out of reach of children under three years old.
From the maker of Koshi Chimes: "The chimes should be good for outdoors use. However, like all wooden objects, they must be regularly treated with a protective oil (teak oil). I have to admit that for now, without time experience I can’t yet give any guarantee."
