With its resonance box made of bamboo, a material known since prehistoric times for its acoustical quality, the KOSHI chime is deep in sound and rich 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. 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, reveals the sound to be even more depth and enriches the harmonics. The diameter of the cylinder is 6,3 cm and the height is 16,5 cm, 4cm longer than the former Shanti Chimes.
