Fine instruments from feeltone

We are pleased to be able to offer you high-quality instruments from our own production and from all over the world from friendly instrument manufacturers!

Our customers are enthusiastic about the beautiful design, the high quality (acoustically and in terms of craftsmanship) and the intuitive approach that our instruments offer. As a result, the player experiences a quick sense of achievement and thus joy of playing.

You can also benefit from our monochord seminars with Martina Gläser-Böhme! Trainees are amazed at how versatile an instrument with just one fundamental tone can be and what sound experiences it offers.

Our pillars are:

  • Vision
  • production
  • Trade
  • Seminars

 

Our philosophy:

Music without notes?!

For 40 years, my vision has been to develop and produce instruments and sound bodies that anyone, whether musician or non-musician, can play straight away, with which they can express themselves and connect with others. No learning, no reading, no copying. Open up, get involved and experience. Leave out the judgments. And I have seen the happiness in many, many eyes when sound touches. I want to make this blissful experience accessible to more people. This experience can only happen now. It is deeply healing. Not yesterday - not tomorrow, but now.

feeltone production

Wood, skin and string

Our high quality in the construction of slit drums and monochords is based on our decades of experience.

We have been building slit drums since 1982 and have continued to develop them over the decades. Our repertoire ranges from the large bass snare drum to the small tinka tong. Each drum is individually made and tuned by hand.

We have been making monochords since 1997 and today, thanks to our developments, we can offer you various models - from the small monolinas, which impress with their high sound quality and light weight, to solid pieces of sound furniture, such as the sound chair, the monchair, the sound wave or the sound lounger.

Our ritual drums are made with regional, partly organic skins and beech frames using traditional construction methods.

It is also part of our company profile that our surfaces are organic, as are our materials and that plastic is largely avoided in our packaging. Some of our wood comes from FSC-certified trade.

 

feeltone workshop

Everything from a single source

In 2015, we were able to expand our workshop, making the framework, flooring and cladding of the hall out of wood. This creates a very warm atmosphere. We are delighted with our large hall, which now includes the machine room, bench room and oil room. The string workshop is also in this building.

We receive the wood, which has been air-dried for years, on one side of the hall as a plank, and a strung instrument leaves the workshop on the other side of the hall. We cut, plane and mill in the machine room, glue, sand, drill and tune slotted drums in the bench room. The instrument is then oiled and, depending on the instrument, strung. The instrument now leaves our production rooms, goes to the warehouse and is packed there. The office organizes our worldwide shipping and communication with the customer.

We work in a resource-saving way: due to the different sizes of our instruments, we also use smaller pieces of wood. The development of old and new instruments was and remains our driving force. We take up impulses from the market, often test for a long time and thus ensure new sound experiences for our customers and ourselves. Thanks to our close collaboration with Martina Gläser-Böhme, we have developed the right accessories for our customers' needs in recent years.

We are proud of the fact that there are as many women as men working in our workshop.

Our passion

  • Instruments must be easily accessible - the principle "Anyone can make music"
  • Immediate joy of sound - from the very first moment - music without notes
  • Finest workmanship - soft feel
  • The look is also a melody - sound in the golden ratio
  • Ecological processing and packaging - to protect the environment
  • Conscious use of materials - conserving resources

 

feeltone trade

Sound Fellows

We are proud of our worldwide trade and the resulting international encounters and relationships. Our instrument making partners and friends share our spirit - the love of sound. High craftsmanship, loving production and mutual trust - especially in these times - are a great challenge for every instrument maker. Materials are sometimes difficult to organize, transport routes collapse or are monopolized.

We have been practicing gender parity in the office and workshop for years. We also take great pleasure in sharing and passing on our experience in sound application and touch in the spirit of "feel the sound".

  • Cooperation at eye level - regular exchange between all employees
  • Parity - in the office and workshop
  • Promoting high-quality craftsmanship and attractive jobs
  • Professional service for our customers and direct responsibility for our actions
  • Not just producing goods, but offering our customers our knowledge in seminars

feeltone seminars

Concert of overtones

The seminar on the "Secret Monochord" and the subsequent training are the result of Martina Gläser-Böhme's 17 years of experience.

A participant writes:

Feedback on the monochord supervision with Martina 1-3/2021

For me, playing the monochord is a bridge to a world that I cannot see. It opens up new spaces for me and at the same time opens the door to my intuition. I learn to trust myself more and to follow my intuition.

The supervision with Martina helps me to keep going. Her sensitive and attentive manner encourages me to follow my perceptions more and more and to implement them on the monochord. Her feedback strengthens my confidence.

I can deepen and apply the different ways of playing. At the same time, the supervision is a wonderful opportunity to play the monochord together and gain experience. Something new emerges every time, it cannot be planned or predicted. A sacred space that requires a framework, time and focus - that is possible for me in supervision with Martina. C.K.

Over time, we have added a variety of events and offers to other seminars, which we would like to share with you.
