The Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument. Hand made in a specialist workshop at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains, each chime is the result of meticulous craftsmanship and is of the finest quality.
Eight rods are welded with silver into the metal plate at the base of the resonance tube. A circular striker made of a clear synthetic material is suspended in the centre of the tube, making contact with the metal rods when the wind catcher is activated by the breeze. The precise tuning creates wonderful depth of sound and enriches the harmonics.
The cylinder is made with thin layers of bamboo veneer - a material known for its acoustic quality and also for its strength. Treated with natural oil, the end result is a simple yet elegant design.
Available in 4 melodies: Terra, Aqua, Aria and Ignis - inspired by the four elements. Each has a specific timbre and can be played harmoniously with all the others.
According to the manufacturer, Koshi chimes may be placed outside but they should be in a sheltered spot where they will not get wet e.g. under a porch, roof overhang etc.
