A state of balance, relief, serenity and peace is attained when listening to the sound of Koshi wind chimes. Koshi chimes transform temperament and atmosphere. The beautiful melodies of chimes create a sense of joy, inner peace and natural calm, making them a delightful gift to yourself and others you care about.
Koshi wind chimes available through Chimes Canada are perfect for Feng Shui, relaxation, sound therapy, meditation, yoga, healing practitioners, health therapists, spas and salons, float tanks, stress therapy, aged care and child care facilities. Each chime is exceptionally beautiful in both looks and sound. The crystalline tones of the chimes have a wonderful calming effect on children, however they are not a toy and it is recommended that they not be left in the hands of young children.
Perfectly tuned Koshi wind chimes enhance the sounds of nature and help create a flow of positive energy. On the other hand, wind chimes that are not in tune can create the opposite energy flow. Precision tuned wind chimes can help to counteract the negative energy flow caused by unnatural sound caused by traffic, machinery, loud music etc.
Historically, the Chinese used the music of chimes to express emotions and establish an atmosphere of peace and harmony. Buddhists liked to hang hundreds or even thousands of wind chimes or bells on temples, shrines and pagodas. Breezy moments created an almost overwhelming auspicious sensation of sound.
Koshi wind chimes are manufactured with eight chords that are welded with silver into the metal plate at the base of the resonance tube. The precise tuning creates a play 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. The effect is meditative and delightful!
The Koshi resonance tube is made of 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 treated with natural oil to protect it against the weather. This combined with a new tuning technique gives the sound a great depth and enriches the harmonics.
Koshi chimes can be placed outdoors in a protective area. To maintain their beauty, they will require oiling with either clear teak oil or clear tung oil, on a regular basis.
Holding the chime by its cord, move it gently: be amazed at the crystalline, relaxing sound. Outside, sheltered from rain, as it plays with the wind, you will drift away on a beautiful melody.

The harmonious tuning, the soft sound and the beautiful design make the Koshi wind chimes lovely gifts. Koshi chimes come in four tunings (Aqua, Aria, Ignis and Terra), each inspired by a natural element (water, air, fire and earth). Each has a specific magic timbre and can be played harmoniously with all others.
