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 continuous flow of harmonies. The proportions of the resonance-tube coincides with the 'Golden Ratio' principles of Da Vinci, thus 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.
