Small, light, and easy to play the Monolini is designed so anyone can pick it up and play, while also being suitable for concert performances. Use for body massage, sound bathing, sound mediation, or to accompany singing.


This Monochord combines 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 lightweight, you can lay the monochord on your back, stomach, or legs for sound massage.

What our customers are saying...

"The Monolini is a beautifully crafted intuitive instrument that is perfect for sound healing with vocal improv groups because it creates a magical music bed over which delicious harmonies can be created. It so easily produces enchanting  overtones that a person playing it can simultaneously sit in a meditative state and keep the strings sounding with little effort. People are incredibly drawn to this lovely portable monochord whenever I give workshops."

- Joule L'adara, founder of Sounding Circles LLC


"As a music therapist, I know about the incredible therapeutic value of sound and vibration. I uses the monochord to begin and end her yoga classes, massage therapy sessions, and guided meditations. Because we synchronize with our sonic environment- a principle called "entrainment"- the monochord is a powerful tool that induces a parasympathetic response, reducing heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, pulse and brainwave activity. It facilitates a shift from the busy thinking and doing states to a calm feeling and being state, thereby promoting relaxation and preparing her clients to enter and receive deep healing through yoga, bodywork and meditation."

Monolini & Monolina

These instruments are incredible! Extremely well crafted and very easy to tune, play and transport. I was first introduced to these beautiful instruments in 2012 and knew immediately, I had to own one. I originally bought the Monolina in C and later the Monolini is F. I use them regularly in private sound sessions, group sound baths, nursing homes, yoga classes and healing concerts. The overtones and hypnotic layers never cease to bring deep relaxation and joy not only me but to all those I have played for. I regularly receive positive ufeedback from my sound clients, yoga students, audiences and the nursing staff at the retirement communities.

Very versatile use

I bought my first Monolini couple of years ago and I now own two of them. I play them very slowly allowing the overtones truly shine.

I love how versatile it is. I use it as a drone while toning and chanting. It is very soothing as a backrgound when offering guided meditations. It's perfect on sound baths with Himalayan bowls and chimes. I also use it on my private sound healing sessions either by the feet or on top of the body.

Tuning Monolini is very easy. I noticed that I needed to tune it more often in the beginning but after couple of months it adjusted and needs less work.

For versatility and easy transport, I highly recommended getting the legs and the bag as well.
