Zaphir Chimes were designed by the same company as the hugely popular Koshi chimes - the concept is the same, but the materials used are very different.   

Each instrument has 8 metal rods of different length, welded with silver into a metal ring at the bottom of the cylindrical resonance tube.  The tube itself is constructed from a mesh made from thin layers of strong, long fibre celluloid, tightly wound in a spiral to deliver beautiful acoustic qualities.

After assembly, the instrument is tuned by hand in order to refine the interaction of tones and overtones:  the effect is delightful.  Blue Moon tuning:  D F A B C E A#C

The marbled effect of the paper outer layer is created by dropping oil paint on water. The paper is protected with a layer of Eco varnish.   The inside of the cylinder is coated with a protective layer of Green Label black paint.  Most of the materials used are natural, recyclable and of European origin/standards. 

The dimensions of the chime correspond to the Golden Ratio.

Zaphir chimes are frequently used for meditation, yoga, healing and well being, education and sound-therapy.  They are best placed indoors - near a doorway, or by a window, where any air movement may create an unexpected melody.  If placed outside, the chime should be under a roof or porch overhang to keep it dry.

This item is not boxed.
