The Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument, an original creation of high quality. Hand made in our 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 sound of the chimes is most wonderful for children. But for security reasons they should be kept out of reach of children under three years old. The Koshi chimes work best for outdoors use. Statue Size: 10.5" Tall x 7.5"

This Spacedrum has the distinction of having 8 notes placed on a large diameter. Its scale starts with a B2 and ends on F#4. Greater than conventional models 8 notes, with a diameter of 60 cm, it can play on noteswith remarkable bass.

This model is aimed both at experienced musicians, as conscious people play on a handpan offering deep sounds and vibrations. It can be put on a stand or on your laps despite it's a bit larger than its little brothers.

This scale does not change the arrangement of notes and can play alternately as the other models in 8 notes.

Thanks to a long research & development work in partnership with an engineering high school we’re happy to release the 4th generation Spacedrum, made out of a special stainless alloy. The properties of this special alloy are particularly adapted for the outdoor playing: totally rustproof, even in the extrem climates (see shores, tropics...), hard enough to keep the tuning for years (in normal conditions of use). Added to that, the Spacedrum Evolution (4th gen) develops more sustain and more sound volume while respecting the Spacedrum original sound.

This instrument is fragile and needs to be protected when it's not played. Our bags are specially designed for a good protection of the Spacedrum.

Sound Notes: Strum on the strings close to the bridge of the monochord to create sounds rich in over-tones. Strum in the middle and the sound is more even. At first it seems like you’re hearing only one tone, but as your mind relaxes you can notice a full variety of tones and overtones that weave a wistful and subtle melody. It creates a sound experience much like that of a gong.  [More to come!]
