Presenting the chimes and singing bowls that are available from Gandharva Loka: the world music store in Christchurch, New Zealand. The Chime Tree (also known as Mark Tree, Bar Chimes or Wind Chimes) is a percussive instrument used primarily to add colour to musical arrangements.
Emperor Gongs are wind chimes that are inspired by traditional Asian design to reflect balance, harmony, grace and beauty. Handcrafted for superior musical performance and meticulously hand-tuned to a pentatonic scale, the Emperor Gong acts in concert with the wind to create random patterns of resonating, soothing and charming sound.
Gandharva Loka stocks the sweet music and soothing sounds of New Zealand made Magnolia Wind Chimes – a stunning range of high quality wind chimes that come in a wide variety of colours, sizes and sounds. Zaphir chimes (which were originally known as Shanti Chimes) are at once chalming and enchanting – their delicate tones bring a subtle beauty in sound to any environment. The five different tunings (hear sound samples below) and specific timbres of the Zaphir, combined with their wide variety of colorful designs, bring a lovely element of peace and relaxation to your surroundings and this also makes them excellent gifts. Just a gentle tap with the mallet and Zenergy Chimes emit a powerful and crystal clear tone of singular beauty with a lengthy sustain. Zenergy Chimes are available in one, two, three and five bar models, and also a seven bar Chakra Zenergy Chime with matching semi precious stones (click on the small image above to see the full range [not to scale] in the larger image).
The quartz crystal singing bowls that we offer at Gandharva Loka in Christchurch are sourced from America and are made of the highest quality materials. These powerful quartz crystal singing bowls with their beautiful clear bell-like tones are often used for sound therapy and healing work, music production, meditation and general inspiration.
Like the free-standing frosted quartz crystal singing bowls above, Quartz Crystal Atlantean Wands offer the same beautiful crystal clear tones but are completely transparent and have a handle. Quartz crystal singing pyramids bring together the transformative sound of resonating pure quartz crystal with the power of sacred geometry and the pythagorean pyramid. All sizes of our quartz crystal singing pyramids have long sustaining tones and each pyramid is its own unique combination of notes and harmonics.
These quartz crystal singing pyramids are made using heavy duty quartz crystal rods that provide greater strength and protection from breakage. Singing bowls (also known as Himalayan bowls, rin gongs, medicine bowls, Tibetan bowls or suzu gongs in Japan) are a type of bell, specifically classified as a standing bell. At Gandharva Loka we sell several types of singing bowls that are produced through different means and are carefully selected for quality.
The hand-beaten bowls we stock at Gandharva Loka are made from a blend of metals and, as a result, are rich in overtones. Gandharva Loka stocks cast metal singing bowls in a range of sizes and decorative finishes. It is sometimes the case that we keep instruments in our store than are not listed on our instrument pages – and we have new instruments arriving regularly.

It consists of a number of small chimes (typically cylinders of solid metal approximately 6mm in diameter) of varying lengths hanging from a bar.
Nothing has the ability to transport us to another time and place quite like the brilliant resonance of a gong. The Emperor Gong wind chime features a 25cm bronze gong with a handcrafted wooden wind catcher, striker and top plates. An authentic musical instrument of original creation, they are hand-made at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains in France and each chime is the result of meticulous craftsmanship. These wind chimes are delightful musical instruments designed to deliver spontaneous and soothing music, whenever the wind blows. In addition to this sweet music, these wind chimes are produced in a stunning array of colours and a wide variety of original and artistic woodwork. Zaphir chimes are an authentic musical instrument hand-made by dedicated craftsmen and women in France. Zaphir chimes and their close relative, the Koshi chimes, are also very effective for use in sound therapy work for relaxation, well-being and healing.
The clear resonating tones can help to calm and refocus an individual or a group and are often used for hatha yoga, meditation and healing. Each Zenergy Chime includes a mallet and a keyhole slot on the back of the wooden base that enables the Zenergy Chimes to be installed upright on a door or wall. The bowl is mounted on a stem giving the user the freedom to move about while playing the bowl and they are a powerful addition to any healing practitioner's tool box or energy worker's medicine bag. Although the crystal pyramids are not sold by note, you will receive a card which tells you every note that the pyramid offers plus the astrological sign that it relates to and the chakra that it resonates with.
Their practicle uses include sound healing, energy clearing, sound meditation and simply for pure joy and peace. Rather than hanging inverted or attached to a handle, standing bells sit with the bottom surface resting. Many of our metal bowls are made in India by Tibetan communities using the highest grade metals. We do try to keep our instruments pages updated and generally we also list newly arrived instruments on The Gandharva Loka Blog. The chimes are played by sweeping a finger or stick through the length of the hanging chimes. For over a thousand years, gongs of various types have played an important role in both the religious and secular music of many Asian cultures.
Eight fine metal rods are welded with silver into the metal plate at the base of a resonance tube.

Crafted from the highest quality materials, Magnolia wind chimes are a durable and delightful addition to any home or garden.
In time wind bells were introduced to China and were also hung in temples, palaces and homes.
Enjoy the sweet, charming, soothing and inspiring play of nature's breath moving through a set of wind chimes. The construction and dimensions of this instrument match the natural principles relating to the laws of equilibrium (known as the Golden ratio) which gives these chimes the capacity to produce high quality sound waves that provide a deep sense of harmony, balance and beauty. A video clip displaying the various colour designs and sounds of Zaphir chimes can be viewed here. Double ended Atlantean wands (with a bowl mounted at each end of the handle) are also available. Each bowl is only being struck once (they are not being played around the rim) but the rich overtones can clearly be heard.
If you cannot find the instrument you are looking for on these pages, kindly contact us as the instrument you need may well be on our shelves or we may be able to assist you in tracking it down.
The aluminium wind chime pipes are hardy and naturally corrosion resistant, even in salty coastal conditions. Zenergy Chimes are an effective and charming way to start a class, meeting, yoga practice or call guests to dinner. Singing bowls were traditionally used throughout Asia in the practices of various spiritual traditions. Unlike tubular bells, another form of chime, the chimes on a Chime Tree do not produce a definite pitch but instead produce an inharmonic (rather than harmonic) spectra. The overtones of the shorter chords gradually dominate and become fundamentals, thus forming a circular tone range.
Wind chimes are thought to be good luck in parts of Asia and are used in the art of Feng Shui. Today they are employed worldwide both within and without these spiritual traditions as well as being used for meditation, relaxation, healthcare, personal well-being and religious practice. They are now commonly used all over the world in gardens, on balconies or terraces, and indoors.
