The Monochord

The most classical, traditional and ancient musical string instrument.

It all started a long time ago, in the Antique, as a plain diagnostic instrument used to measure tension, frequency or density of vibrations (also called Sonometer) "reactived" by Pythagoras - well-known as mathematician. The monochord was already mentioned in Sumerian records for 1000 of years. For us, the Monochord developed itself into wonderful musical equipment.
Today, the Monochord is an amazing, unique harmonic, which is often used for meditation, in clinicalsettings like spa clinics, rehabs as well as in music and sound therapies.Nowadays, it is simply impossible to wipe out the existence of a Monochord in these applications. It is an enormous enrichment for all: for you, in your practice, for your patients and customers and wherever "in the field" you may use it.
It is easy! Through it simplicity to play and the growing popularity makes the Monochord even more valuable and appreciated than ever. The high-quality, double-sided Monochords, I manufacture in my workshop, are all tuned to the same tone. Waves of sounds result in a tremendous harmonic which matched the impact of a complete orchestra

"RESONANCE" / FEEDBACK

Over the years, I have had Andreas create three sound instruments and a gong stand for me.
The instruments are a great blessing for my sound work. The love for the sounds and the inner knowledge of Andreas give the sounds breadth, warmth and fineness.
The overtone vibration is of such brilliance that it brings one into deep inner peace and lets others experience an almost weightless light state. The price-performance ratio is excellent.

For many years I have a sound couch and various monochords by Andreas, which I include in my sound work and I am very happy about it.
With every year the instruments are getting better, sounding in beautiful overtones.
I don't want to miss the instruments, I know that, what a loving hand they come from. To the participants of my seminars, I heartily recommend the Workshop of Sounds by Andreas.

It has a very wonderful sound and is very stable in mood. It always gives me a great pleasure to play the monochord
and it greatly enriches my sound and relaxation work in my sound oasis.
