Zaphir Chimes are easy and delightful to play, and simple to incorporate into personal or professional relaxation and healing sessions, yoga, meditation, music-therapy, perinatal care, as well as in educational work with children and adults. The have been well-known for more then 30 years, and have long been appreciated for their beautiful sounds, fun colors, and high quality.
Each of the 5 tunings available are offered in 2 unique colors schemes, created by a specific marble technique of "oil-paint on water," giving the chime it's one-of-a-kind design.
Each individual chime has 8 metal tines of different lengths, welded with silver into a metal ring inside a colorful celluloid resonating tube. Based on 'Golden Ratio' principles of Da Vinci, the tube creates warm acoustic tones and perfect resonance for an instrument of its size.
Like Koshi chimes, Zephir chimes are eco-friendly, made in France, and make an awesome addition to anyone's instrument collection.
Outside use: The chimes can be used outside. It is best is to hang them in a dry place, like in an open window, or under a overhanging roof. However, like many object left outside, weather conditions will dull the vibrant nature of these chimes. Regular maintenance with varnish or oil, will protect, but cannot stop colors from fading, nor stop the negative effects of weather conditions. If the chime gets wet, just let it dry. It will play it's magic melody over and over again.
