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.
