Lightweight and versatile, the Monolina, along with the more compact Monolini (in a separate listing) is a portable monochord instrument handcrafted by feeltone in Germany. These are mesmerizing and harmonizing sound healing instruments are designed so anyone can play them with minimal instruction, but are complex enough that musicians can also use them for performance. Used for sound bathing, sound meditation or to accompany singing. And thanks to their light weight, these instruments can easily be used for on the body vibrational therapy, which of course totally delights us here at Beautiful Sounds!
What is the difference between the Monolina and her little sister, the Monolini? Both instruments have the same body length, come tuned to A,C,F or D (and now G for the Monolina only), and are tuned overtone, base note, fifth of overtone note. Monolina has 34 strings and Monolini, 21 strings. The Monolina also has 5 bridges that come with a template so you can easily create minor or major accents. With a full 34 strings, the Monolina has a larger body than the Monolini, and therefore more resonant and voluminous in sound and vibration.
The Monolina combines the energizing overtones with the deeper tones of an octave and fifth tuning and, optional, melody. Spreads the sound gently and quickly from the area where it touches the body into the body itself. With its slightly rounded bottom and light weight, you can lay the monochord on your back, stomach or legs for sound massage.
Made in Germany by feeltone, who have years of experience in building and designing monochords. Their close collaboration with therapists and musicians has resulted in a variety of monochord instruments and accessories to meet all your monochord needs.
