Now to the tough Question! 

How do I chose my monochord Tuning? (Help)

Joule L'Adara, our expert instructor, guides you through the five note choices for the Monolini and Monolina monochord models: C, A, G, F, and D. Each tuning features a root note, octave note, and 5th. 

The Monolina model includes five additional accent melody notes, which can be tuned to either a major or minor pentatonic scale. 
Joule demonstrates and explains the unique qualities and ideal uses for each tuning.

Feeling confused? 
Don't worry! The video explains everything in detail.


Use these recordings to play other instruments along, or sing with the recordings to see if the tuning matches your voice range. Enjoy exploring the perfect match for your needs!

Which feeltone Monochords combine best

Between the 5 note choices of C, A, G, F, D there are 10 possible combinations of two monochords played together. 
Because the feeltone monochords contain an octave and a fifth, there are multiple notes that combine when pairing two instruments together. 
There are 4 different monochord combinations that sound the most harmonious as these contain only 3 notes between them: A+D, D+G, F+C, C+G. (There are only 3 notes total as with these instruments one of the notes appears as the root in one and the 5th note on the other instrument.) The remaining 6 monochord combinations have 4 notes between them and are therefore a little more dissonant when played together.
