Tubular Bells

Wolfgang Deinert, created Klangfarben in 1989, in Germany and has been handcrafting his precision Bell chimes and tubular gongs ever since.

These instruments open up a new level of working with sound, the instruments are made with high quality brass. The precision tuning of a set is done on the same day so the chime sets stay in tune together. Metal is a material that changes with temperature etc so the tuning aspect is important.

After the tuning the gong chimes are finished by polishing them by hand.

The sets listed here can be modified,

  • chose the reference note A (440hz, 432hz)
  • chose the tuning: 

Please contact us and we are happy to discuss the options with you.

 

This is what our customer have to say about Klangfarben:

"The Klangfarben Chimes are such wonderful healing helpers that speak, blending sweet and calming vibrations to allow people to relax into themselves and look at what’s not serving them. I work with them almost every day and use them in a variety of ways. Sometimes they are just what is needed by themselves in the moment.”

Klangfarben


For most people hearing is something ordinary. It was for me for a long time also, until my son Elias lost his hearing caused by meningitis when he was 4 month old. I began to ask myself some questions: What is the difference between hearing and listening? How do we perceive sound? What is sound?

 

I started to build sound tubes (chimes) and Elias showed me that even a deaf person can "hear" - with his hands, his feet, his whole body and his wide open senses. He is Listening rather than Hearing.
He inspired me to research, observe and sharpen my senses to understand the relationship between notes, tones, sounds and their effects.

In 1989 I established "Klangfarben - Studio für Klangkörper" with the purpose to build instruments for researching the effects of individual sounds and various sound sequences on natural organisms.
My earliest creations were windchimes with different basic tones. Each chime elicits a different mood. The combinations of different notes were based on my own experience to their effects.
During my research I discovered a brass alloy, which is the most effective material for what I want to achieve. Since then, I have mastered precise tuning to create sound tubes of exceptional quality in timbre and vibrations. Each chime is meticulously hand finished.

From 1994 until 2007 I had an intensive and inspiring cooperation with Fabien Maman to develop instruments with specific sound sequences and their applications in healing techniques. Throughout Europe and the United States, clinics, doctors, facilities for the disabled, naturopaths, therapists and individuals have profound results using the sound tubes (chimes) for healing.

I will use this page to thank everyone who crossed my path, shared their experiences, encouraged and inspired me. I shall start with Elias, who showed me how to listen with all senses.
