A monochord is a stringed instrument with several strings, but all tuned to the same note. These are played one after the other, so that a long lasting, soothing sound is created.

When one string is plucked, all the others resonate. Evenly stroked over the strings, a spherical sounding overtone carpet is created. The monochord is thus a very easy-to-play musical instrument.

Monochords can be used in vibroacoustic sound massage - placed on hands, feet, back, abdomen, or chest they lead to a gentle and deeply felt relaxation and sensory stimulation.
