Monochord Therapy Instruments

feeltone Monochord Therapy furniture are natural acoustic instruments combined with beautiful everyday furniture, developed for music therapy, sound massage and relaxation in professional and private settings. The guest can experience deep relaxation through sound and vibration in short settings or long sound "journeys."

These special instruments were developed by Ingo Böhme. They are the result of 30 years of experimenting with sound, working with therapists of all kinds, and expressing the vision that sound can be rediscovered as an intuitive power that supports our general well-being, our health, and our healing processes.

Monochord Table

Monochord Table

by feeltone
Our new  redesigned Monochord table got a major tune up, for shipping the legs can be taken off and the monochord packs into a 80x35x35 box.

We have designed a new Monochord Table with a sophisticated internal body that brings more brilliant overtones and a brighter bass and vibration. The tuning stability is 100% when the client’s weight is on the table.

The reclining surface from ash is softly bend, which soothes the back. The resonance body from ash is bend in two directions what supports the sound brilliance. The frame, feet and the cross bar can be chosen from either ash or from nicely reddish colored cherry.

The body weight is just 45 kg and especially light. With 60 kg total weight it can be carried easily by two people. It is designed for people with up to 150 kg weight. The tuning can be chosen either in 60 blank overtone strings or in 30 blank overtone strings and 30 wound bass strings. Basic size 79.2'' x 28'' x 32''.

New added accessories and choices to personalize your Monochord table.

     •     Adapter for a Headrest set or a Headrest set with integrated Armrest.

     •     Add on for the Armrest set - a table to place singing bowls on top of it so the sound and vibration gets transferred into the Table

     •     Extensions to make the table longer and wider.

     •     Integrated bottom shelf extra large to hold personal items , or singing bowls. If you play the singing bowls sitting on the shelf the vibration gets transferred into the table

     •      Rolling Sitting board, on which you can place a meditation cushion and use the board to move easily from one position to another so you can utilize the full length of the strings and the different overtones that are created when you play the table in different positions.

Please contact me if you have questions and I will help you to chose the right accessories for the work you are intending to do. The quoted price below is for the KLL-2 Overtone & Vibration Monochord table in ash wood without any add ons.

This is what some of our customer have to say about the soundwave:


The sound wave is such a complete and powerful instrument. The four notes of the tongue drum each address an other part of the body. The big tongue drum therefore is a perfect instrument to start a session with. It allows you to 'feel' and tune into the person. By playing the tongue drum you can invite your customer to slow down his breathing and heart rhythm. A steady drum rhythm can bring you and/or your customer in a trance. The monochord is very different from the drum. It creates smooth, rich sound waves that take you on a journey within. You may experience a deep sense of relaxation, see shapes or colors, hear choirs, flutes, horns or other kinds of instruments or feel deeply rooted emotions. I often use the soundwave for people with emotional stress. It helps opening up doors, gates previously kept locked.

This is what some of our customers have to say about our Monochord Chair

The feeltone Monchord Singing Chair 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.

There are numerous patients who have benefited from the breath glissando release sounds I use accompanied by the string glissando-from low to high and then absorption…where the strings resonate and saturate through the warm wood into the body. In a general way, this warm up takes only about five minutes and creates “flow” and a sense of “homeostasis” or “self integration” or “synchrony between the body-mind-spirit” as one of my pianist musician players often says.


There are two patients who have particularly benefited from the vibration  .. please go to our blog to read more about the study

What our customers are saying...

"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."

- Katarina Zech, Board Certified Music Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapist, Registered Yoga Teacher, and Meditation Guide.

About the singing chair

You sit inside the resonance body of the  Singing chair / Sound Chair which has a 60 string monochord integrated into the back of the chair. The back of the singing chair is strung with 30 blank and 30 wound strings which are tuned with one octave in between. They can be tuned differently by using the additional bridge inserts from the Monochord line. This instrument allows an unlimited exploration of sound.


The „ears“ of the chair create a special resonance chamber and give you the feeling of being embraced and protected by sound and music.

When the  monochord is played rich sounds with melodious overtones and vibrations are created by the strings. The sound and vibration is transferred through the wood of the chair into your body. From head to toe and into your fingertips and the palm of your hand.

The full body experience of sound and vibration allows you to relax and the vibrational sound massage allows you to become aware of tensions that might exist in your body.  

As you become aware of your tension you can activly let go of them and be guided by the practitioner in that process of transforming tensions into into relaxation, realization and change
Inviting a state of calmness. You can read more about the effects of the Singing Chair in the user feedback section.

The back bottom of the singing chair has two wheels , you can tip the chair backwards and the wheels allow you to move the chair easily.

The Singing Chair can be used in many different settings, age groups and for different populations, anyone who can sit down in a chair can experience the Singing chair.  

Available in two tunings:

monochord tuning allows you to create a more nuanced play.
30 overtone & 30 bass strings, sound range B - d / b - d‘. Overall dimension 56 x 24 x 32 

There are 22 bass strings tuned to D and 18 overtone strings tuned to the higher octave in d. This allows the player more creative possibilities to excite the fine and subtle overtones. You can vary and either focus on the deeper tones, which have more vibrations, or play the higher strings to create more overtones.

tambura tuning is easy to play.
60 strings. Sets of 4 strings C,c,c,G repeated 15 times.Overall dimension 56 x 24 x 32 

If you string the strings evenly with your fingers you will create overtones which have rich harmonics. The repeated sequences (monchiar: D, d, d, A / Classical Sound Chair: C, c, c,G) create a rich sound environment. This might embraces and hold you in a relaxing environment without any prior training.

An instrument with tambura tuning is great for places exposed to new people all the time, who want to play and enjoy easily. Great to use in settings like offices, hotels, wellness and care facilities.

Your hands and palms are resting comfortably on the armrests.

The two armrests can be moved in different positions and adjust to the individual arm length and the ball to rest the hand, giving the whole arm and the inside of the palm a vibrational sound massage and stimulation.                                      Size: 14 x 6.8 x 4.8''  $366

















The instrument is built to order and available in approximately 1 month after order received.

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.”
