Description

THE KOSHI CHIME

The Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument, an original creation of high quality. Hand made 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.

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 primarily a musical instrument but by its sober and elegant design it invites itself into every decor. 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 high acoustic quality is made with thin layers of bamboo. This combined with a new tuning technique gives the sound even more depth and enriches the harmonics.
