Chimes and Twinkly Tines
These lovely instruments can be mixed and matched!
Zaphir Chimes, well-known for over more then 30 years and appreciated for their quality, the crystal clear sound and their glowing colors , are also completely made by hand in French workshops. With their relaxing and harmonizing sound, these chimes have become known as a wonderful tool for relaxation, yoga & meditation, Feng Shui, sound-sessions and other forms of therapy.
Zaphir Chimes in beautiful jewel colors are dedicated to the 5 seasons of Chinese Medicine: Spring, Summer, Late-Summer, Autumn, and Winter. We Play Well Together has a special set curated with the corresponding colors for the seasons. And they come individually wrapped to make the perfect present!
Finally, we have our wonderful line of Kalimbas from Hokema, handcrafted in Germany. Hokema introduced a special line of the B9 Kalimba with four tunings that correspond to the Koshi Chimes! Because these also are in tune with the Zaphirs, you can create "triple sound layering" with a sets of three instruments. They're all based on 432 Hz tuning in similar chord progressions so that the unique sounds blend together.

You can purchase any individual chime or Kalimba. To offer the "sound layering" effect described above however, we recommend you purchase sets of 3 that include the Koshi Chime, Zaphir Chime, and Hokema Kalimba that all correspond with each other. This gives you the opportunity to create gorgeous complex sound layering that is perfectly in tune, allowing you to intuitively play with the rhythm and texture that is appropriate for your sound journey, sound meditation, or musical composition.
