Over de Koshi chimes (informatie van de producent)

THE KOSHI CHIME

The Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument, an original creation of high quality. Hand made in our workshop at the foot of the Pyrenees 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. When it plays with the wind it will carry you away in an unexpected melody.

...AFTER THE SHANTI CHIMES

Hello… I am Kabir, the inventor of the world renowned Shanti ® chimes. After many years of success Shanti closed down in 2009.
Since then, with more than 20 years of experience and as ever obsessed by musical sound, I have been looking how to improve on my previous creation. Now I can introduce you to the Koshi chime that has already won the hearts of sound lovers throughout the planet.

With its resonance box made of bamboo, a material known since prehistoric times for its acoustical quality, the Koshi chime is deeper in sound and richer in overtones. It is in the first place a musical instrument but by its sober and elegant design it invites itself into every décor.
I have created 4 new melodies, Terra, Aqua, Aria and Ignis. Each has a specific magic timbre and can be played harmoniously with all the others.
The cylinder, made in our workshop, consists of bamboo veneer and is treated with natural oil.
I have used bamboo veneer as it is much stronger than the natural bamboo. A true “resonance tube” of a high acoustic quality is made with thin layers of bamboo. This and a new tuning technique give the sound even more depth and enrich the harmonics.
The diameter of the cylinder is 6,3 cm and the height is 16,5 cm, 4cm longer than the former Shantis.

Children

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.

Outdoor use

The Koshi chimes should be good for outdoors use. However, like all wooden objects, they must be regularly treated with a protective oil (teak oil). I have to admit that for now, without time experience I can’t yet give any guarantee.
