The Monochord

A classic among the string instruments:

What began in antiquity only as a pure measuring instrument for the study of music is now being continued in the musical development of the monochord.
The Monochord today, is a wonderful Overton-Instrument, which is often used for meditation, in spa clinics, rehabs as well as in music and sound therapy.
It is simply impossible to imagine these areas without it and it is an enrichment for you and your practice.
The growing popularity and simplicity of playing this instrument makes it more valuable than ever.
The high-quality, double-sided monochords I make in my workshop are all tuned to the same tone, so that the instrument produces fascinating sounds that can often be heard as a whole orchestra. be perceived.

The whole Monochord series made of real wood ceilings can be played vertically as well as upright (after simple modification). Special designs are of course possible for you at any time.

little tip: Play it 10 minutes warm and the sound will be much more impressive and will give you "goose bumps" moments. This way the whole sound can unfold with all overtone-rich tones.

Monochords with ornaments and motifs

Make your instrument unique with an ornament or a motif on the sides and/or on the real wood tops. It should not only sound good, but also be something for the "eye". Motive wishes on request. Examples of what that might look like.....

The fine-tuning beads make quick retuning much easier and save you the trouble of tuning with the tuning key.
Thus, up to 1 1/2 tones can be readjusted.

What sound colleagues say about the monochords .....

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.

Gaiana Glatz Ice
relaxation trainer, music and Montessori teacher, sound artist; sound massage practitioner according to Peter Hess, member of the European Association for Sound-Massage-Therapy

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.

Maria Magdalena Bölling
Sound of the Earth - Institute for Health and Prevention

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.
