Here is what some of our customer say about the Monolina:
"The Monolini is a beautifully crafted intuitive instrument that is perfect for sound healing with vocal improv groups because it creates a magical music bed over which delicious harmonies can be created. It so easily produces enchanting overtones that a person playing it can simultaneously sit in a meditative state and keep the strings sounding with little effort. People are incredibly drawn to this lovely portable monochord whenever I give workshops."
-Joule L'adara, founder of Sounding Circles LLC
As a music therapist, I know about the incredible therapeutic value of sound and vibration. I uses the monochord to begin and end her yoga classes, massage therapy sessions, and guided meditations. Because we synchronize with our sonic environment- a principle called "entrainment"- the monochord is a powerful tool that induces a parasympathetic response, reducing heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, pulse and brainwave activity. It facilitates a shift from the busy thinking and doing states to a calm feeling and being state, thereby promoting relaxation and preparing her clients to enter and receive deep healing through yoga, bodywork and meditation."

All of our instruments are dropshipped to you directly and come with a free 30 min Skype monochord training. You will get a fedex tracking number after the order is placed and confirmed.
All Monochords now have an enhanced corpus size combined with a changed interior structure as well as more and special strings that effectuates a brilliant and long lingering sound.
All monochords are made of ash- and cherrywood and can be played standing upright or horizontal.
White pearls can be used to pitch the tone quick and easy for fine-tuning.
All Monochords come with tuning key, tuner, replacement strings.
If you strum the strings close to the bridge they are very overtone rich and in the middle they sound more equal, comparable to a gong. In the beginning there only seems to be one tone but with a relaxed mind you are able to listen to all the variety of tones and overtones which weave a wistful and invisible melody.
If you sit in front of the upright self-standing instrument you can play it on both sides with both hands at the same time. The sound volume is created between the upper body of the player and the instrument and can create a rhythm, or be meditative and gong-like.
Here is what some of our customers have to say about the Monochord:
I am a Montessori teacher and own a monochord. I notice that the kids that I teach stop occasionally in their schoolwork, go over to the monochord and play, and then return with a feeling of calm to their work. Sometimes a child lays down on the Giant tongue drum and another one plays the tongue drum while a third child plays the monochord. For myself, I realized that the deep sound of the monochord grounds me while the higher pitch gives me upwards energy. I think the monochord is a precious instrument.

Here is what one of our customer has to say about the Monolini's:
I have been working with the Body Monochord from feeltone ( the previous Model of the Monolini Serie) since over 6 years in therapeutic settings as a Music and Sound therapist. The cliental I am working with are persons with severe multiple disabilities, dementia patients and persistent vegetative state patients.
The new Monolini Quint Monochord offer me to further extend these areas of application. What convinced me above all else was the exceptional structural shape of the new models. ( Monolini, Monolina). This shape allows me and my client to position the instrument easily and exactly onto the chosen part of the body, which is not possible with other kinds of body monochords.
Especially for people with severe multiple disabilities , who can not assume a normal laying down position because of their handicaps, it is important to be able to position the body monochord exactly at a chosen body space with ease.
This monochord will not slide when it is played, which will happen with other models that I did try out. The built of the Monolini/Monlina allows me to optimally play and place it on a variety of body sizes, forms and positions.
The Monolin Quinten monochord stands out with its brilliant sound. This small and lightweight monochord has an unusual large sound volume, which pleasantly surprised me. Because of its different tuning and variation of its string, it allows me to create different moods and effects with my clients.
The beautiful craftsmanship and wood of the instrument creates a wonderful 'look and feel' effect and haptic interactions. It is a joy and pleasure to work with this instrument.
I use the Monolini Quiten monochord in my treatments receptive and /or active depending of the needs of my clients.
The instrument is robust enough to allow my clients to actively play the monochord and create sounds that are deeply touching. The different strings allows the client to play a diversified and surprisingly multifaceted sound carpet. If you add little wooden sticks you can add even more variety, improvisation and sounds.
I also use the Monolin Quitenmonochord with Sound journeys, sound meditations, therapeutical chanting and singing. The Monlini Quitenmonochors is a truly small and strong Allrounder.”

Kalimbas are metal-tined instruments which originated in southern Africa and which can be found there in countless variations.
Our Kalimba B 11 ‘Melody’ is made of solid American black cherry wood and meticulously hand-crafted. The surfaces are treated and polished with natural oils and waxes. The 11 tines are precisely tuned to the scale of G- Major, so that a large number of well-known songs can be played. The ‘Melody’ is also ideal for improvisation and intuitive playing.
We have positioned the long and short tines alternately to ensure ease of playing and in accordance with acoustic criteria.
The six shorter tines have been bent so that their ends are raised above the level of the longer ones so that they can easily be reached by the thumbs. When playing from the low to the high tones, the five long tines are plucked alternately by the thumbs beginning in the middle and moving outwards - the right thumb begins on Tine No. 6 – then the six shorter tines follow, also played from the middle outwards, whereby the left thumb begins on Tine No. 5.
The eleven tines are numbered from left to right. The even numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 represent the longer tines with the lower tones, the odd numbers stand for the shorter, bent tines with the higher tones. Normally – for single-voice melodies – the left thumb (L) plays the tines 1-6 and the right thumb (R) plays numbers 6-11.
We have developed the Sansula Renaissance to combine the best features of our other models in one.
While the basic Sansula instrument has a relatively delicate membrane, the Renaissance is fitted with a robust synthetic REMO drumskin.
The Sansula Renaissance Electra has a piezo pickup and a microphone mounted inside the frame and sounding block. So the Wah Wah effect can be optionally amplified. You will need an amplifier with phantom power and the needed XLR cable with 3.5 mm jack is included with the purchase of the instrument.
The Renaissance is resistant to moisture, so it retains its tension under conditions of varying air humidity and thus also retains its wonderful sound. For all age groups.
Most importantly, the Sansula Renaissance has inherited the indescribable sounds of the Sansula Klassik.
The tuning of the instrument, in a-minor with additional b and f, allows wonderful melodies to be produced, almost by themselves, by plucking the tines with the thumbs.
Optisch unterscheidet sich das neue Modell durch eine abgerundete Holzkante auf der Oberseite des Instruments.
Tuning ex-works (can be varied):
a ́, c ́ ́, c ́, a ́, a, f ́, e ́, e ́ ́, h ́
Measurements: 8 x 6.4 x 3.2 inch
We recommend our new Sansula softbag in order to adequately protect the vulnerable membrane of the Sansula when the instrument is stored or transported.
If you wonder why you might need a Bag for the Sansula, this video shows it all:)
Why we offer Trainings:
Our hands-on workshops will give you the opportunity to play, experience, and learn more about the Feeltone Monochords including the Monolini or Monolina Body Therapy Monochords and the larger Concert and Meditation Monochord. While these instruments are completely intuitive and require no prior musical knowledge or ability to play, specific techniques are offered in this training that will deeply improve your ability to play the instruments with beauty, ease, and a variety of colors, as well as to evoke the elements of nature and to hold a deeply meditative space when playing for others. All of these techniques can be used for sound massage, group meditation sessions, to accompany singing and voice work, or to enhance any kind of hands-on healing work from acupuncture to massage therapy.
The Vibration Singing Chair, from feeltone, has served as an important instrument to the patients we serve at The Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center. I have appreciated that I have the ability to tune...
