The unique KOSHI chimes are musical instruments of high quality, handmade in the Pyrenees. Each chime is the result of refined craftsmanship. They come in four elements: Water (Aqua), Air (Aria), Fire (Ignis) and Earth (Terra).
These can be assigned to the corresponding signs of the zodiac:
Zaphir sound chimes come in different colors and five elements and are assigned to the seasons: Sunray for summer, Twilight for autumn, Blue Moon for winter, Sufi for in-between season and Crystalide for spring.
No matter what you choose, they all sound unique and beautiful. They also all go together tonally if you want to combine several Koshi chimes together.
Eight strings of various lengths are silver soldered into the metal disc at the bottom of a cylindrical resonator. The extremely precise tuning produces a harmonious play of pure tones and overtones. The overtones of the shortest strings become ascending, dominant, and thus fundamental tones, forming a circumferential sequence of tones. KOSHI chimes are available in four different sound tunings, each of which has its own magical timbre.
If you want to buy musical instruments (in Switzerland or elsewhere), we want to be the store of your choice. Dunum was born out of love for music, for sound, for vibration. On countless journeys we got to know many different instruments and sounds, which inspired us and which we would like to share with you now. We want to produce and offer musical instruments of quality and thus win your heart for world music. That's why we brought the diverse sounds from our travels and now pass them on to you. In our store you will find not only gongs, but also sound chimes, wind chimes, didgeridoos, singing bowls and much more. Have fun browsing!
Compare different sound chimes in a relaxed atmosphere at our store in Zofingen and take the right instrument home with you right away - without any waiting time. Preferences often emerge only after the first listening and comparison.
