Zaphir Chime Sunray - Dark Blue
Imagine the season of Summer - its early in the morning, and you are tucked in your bed. The morning rays of the sun are falling on you from the window slit, and you are feeling fresh after your sleep. These Sunray chimes are a sonic representation of the summer season.
Close your eyes imagining this as you play the video.
Each instrument has 8 metal cords of different lengths, welded with silver into a metal ring. Upon assembly, the cords are again carefully tuned to refine the interaction of tones and overtones into a circular almost endless flow of harmonies.
The proportions of the resonance-tube coincides with the 'Golden Ratio' principles of Da Vinci, thus assuring optimal sound and resonance.
The resonance-tube of the chime is made of thin crushed and pressed layers of long fiber celluloid board. That creates the perfect acoustic qualities for the warm timbre and the crystalline sounds the Zaphir Chimes are known for.
Material : 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.
