The Original Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument, an original creation of high quality. Hand made at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains in France, each chime is the result of meticulous craftsmanship.
Eight precisely tuned metal rods (chimes) are welded with silver into the metal plate at the base of the resonance tube (made from bamboo veneer) to create a chord 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 French maker of these chimes says they can be hung outside under an eave, but we recommend to use them only indoors, hanging them near a window. The breeze will waft the delicate sounds through your home – and they will be safe from weather and light fingered admirers.
