The Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument.   Hand made in a specialist workshop at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains, each chime is the result of meticulous craftsmanship and is of the finest quality.

Available in 4 melodies:  Terra, Aqua, Aria and Ignis - inspired by the four elements.   Each has a specific timbre and can be played harmoniously with all the others.

Eight rods are welded with silver into the metal plate at the base of the resonance tube.  A circular striker made of a clear synthetic material is suspended in the centre of the tube, making contact with the metal rods when the wind catcher is activated by the breeze.  The precise tuning creates wonderful depth of sound and enriches the harmonics. 

The cylinder is made with thin layers of bamboo veneer - a material known for its acoustic quality and also for its strength.  Treated with natural oil, the end result is a simple yet elegant design.

 The tunings are as follows:

"Aria":   A C E A B C E B
"Aqua":  A D F G A D F A
"Ignis":   G B D G B D G A
"Terra":  G C E F G C E G

According to the manufacturer, Koshi chimes are suitable for outdoor use - though like all wooden objects left outside, they will benefit from a regular application of teak oil.

However, we would recommend placement in a sheltered spot e.g. under a porch, roof overhang etc. or enjoy your Koshi chime by hanging it indoors.   

Each presented in an attractive gift box.

Measurements

NB:  the chimes are shipped with the central cord wrapped around the metal rods inside the body of the chime.   Please ensure the cord  can move freely before hanging up your Koshi chime.
