Size: 5 inches tall x 2.5 inches wide
The 5 Zaphir wind chimes are each tuned to a scale intended to represent the 5 seasons and elements of Feng Shui.
Each instrument has 8 metal tines of measured lengths, silver soldered into a metal ring. After assembly, the tines are again carefully tuned to refine the interaction of tones and overtones into a continuous flow of harmonies. The proportions of the resonance-tube are purported to be in line with the 'Golden Ratio' principles of Da Vinci, in an attempt at assuring optimal sound and resonance.
Thin crushed and pressed layers of long fiber celluloid board create the perfect acoustic qualities for the warm timbre and crystalline sounds Zaphir Chimes are known for. Most of the materials used are natural, recyclable and of EEG origin / standards. The protective layers of varnish, and paint of the resonance-tube are ecological. The wooden parts are wax coated.
