With a handy small size, the ALLTON monochord has an amazingly good sound. The bottom is flat and nicely rounded at the edges. The monochord can be placed on legs, stomach or back, or held in the arm. The gripping recesses on the sides ensure good handling. This new model A is slimmer and longer than the previous versions, which makes the sound even fuller. The harmonious sounding quint-quart and octave intervals have a very pleasant effect on most people. Invigorating and relaxing at the same time.
It can be played by regularly stroking the strings with the fingertips or by rhythmically plucking the notes.

Placed on the body, you can feel the harmony or individual tones as a gentle vibration. The underside is flat and nicely rounded at the edges. Despite the short length of the strings, the wound guitar strings allow for a rich, deep sound that promotes sensory perception when played on the body. When playing, the whole instrument comes into vibration and transmits it to the body. This activates the body cells (vibroacoustics / basal stimulation). The ALLTON monochord can be used while sitting or lying down.

Tambura tone sequence: a-d'-d'-d is set several times in a row. Various thick strings, which in addition to the lowest fundamental sound the harmonious higher notes in the fifth and octave, conjure up a carpet of sound rich in overtones when played. This has either a relaxing or invigorating effect, depending on the basic mood. Depending on preference, the strings can be tuned up to one tone lower.
