Which Olli Hess sound instrument should I buy?

Sound instruments come in many different shapes and designs. Which one is right for you doesn't just depend on the purpose for which you want to use it - what matters most is what appeals to you personally. For example, the rain sound column with its trickling and rushing sounds is well suited to meditation and improvisation; a table chime, on the other hand, is very versatile and can be used for short to endless sounds. For a long-lasting, overtone-rich sound, we recommend wah-wah tubes, for example. They are very easy to use, are struck with a rubber mallet and the unique "wah-wah" effect is created by alternately closing and opening the sound hole.

We take the same care when selecting our sound instruments as we do when manufacturing our gongs, mallets and reeds. So no matter which instrument you choose, you can be sure that it meets the high standards we set for all our products in terms of quality and materials.

Questions you should ask yourself before buying a sound instrument:
Where do you want to use the sound instrument?
What sounds do you want to produce with your sound instrument?
Would you like to use the instrument for sound meditation or sound therapy?
Are you looking for a small, handy sound instrument or can it be larger?

Do you have any questions, requests or suggestions? We'll take care of them personally. Olli Hess will advise you on the sound instruments via telephone and e-mail. This way, we make sure that you can easily find the right instrument for you online.

What is so special about Olli Hess' sound instruments?

Many of the sound instruments that you can buy in our store are manufactured by long-standing partners. Even if we do not develop an instrument ourselves, we place the same high demands on our partners as we do on ourselves: We insist on fair production conditions, the use of sustainable and regional materials and manufacturing in Germany. So you can be sure: Every sound instrument contains the best quality.

Personally selected: Perhaps you have already noticed - in our store you will only find a small, but very special collection of sound instruments. Olli Hess personally selected them. That's exactly what he loves: trying things out, discovering new things and, above all, making the whole universe of sounds accessible to everyone.

This is also what makes our sound instruments so special:

  • Made by hand in small businesses
  • Carefully selected and checked by us
  • Produced from sustainable and regional materials
  • Made in Germany, under fair production conditions

What types of sound instruments are there?

The term "sound instruments" covers a whole range of instruments. In addition to gongs and singing bowls , these include monochords, tambourines, wind chimes, koshis, cymbals and kalimbas.

At Olli Hess you will find a small but very special selection of sound instruments. Our assortment ranges from rain sound columns made of bamboo to sound chimes and tubular bells made of aluminum. We have chosen these instruments because we have played and tried them out ourselves for a long time and are absolutely convinced by them.

Rainstick made from bamboo

The rain sound pillar - also known as a rainstick - is made from a bamboo tube and has small stoppers inside, which the filling material slowly trickles past in a gentle, even murmur when the instrument is turned. The sound lasts up to nine minutes - depending on the size - and is reminiscent of the gentle falling of rain in the forest. The Rainstick is easy to use and its sound has a calming, relaxing and harmonizing effect.

Table tube game, power chime sound game and wah-wah tube

Power chimes are available with differently tuned individual bars or as a three-row chime model. The bars of this sound instrument are located within a ribbon suspension, which allows them to vibrate freely. With the right mallet, you can produce clear, high and long-lasting tones with the power chime.

The hollow tubes of a table tube game can also be moved freely in an elastic band suspension. This allows even more flexibility and creativity when playing. From a short to an almost endless tone - you can experience everything with a table tube chime. The sound instrument is also suitable for children.

The popular "wah-wah" effect of the wah-wah tube is created when you play it with a rubber mallet and alternately hold the sound hole closed and open it again. The instrument also works very well in combination with gongs or other sound instruments such as a monochord or a happy drum.
All our sound instruments are not only suitable for making music, but also for use in sound journeys or sound therapies.

What size and effect do sound instruments have?

As sound instruments are available in a wide variety of designs and for different areas of use, the size and the effect that the instrument can have on your body and mind also vary. Small sound instruments are practical to take with you at all times - be it when traveling or simply outdoors in nature. Larger ones, on the other hand, are not always easy to transport, but usually have a more voluminous sound.

Deep sound spectrums can have a grounding and confidence-boosting effect; instruments with high-pitched and overtone-rich tones can stimulate and lift the mood. However, the perception of sound and the sensations it triggers is ultimately always a very individual experience.

However, all sound instruments have one thing in common: their sound sets your entire body into a gentle vibration and can therefore have an effect down to the deepest cellular level. This helps you to relax, reduce stress and slow down.

Mallets and mallets for sound instruments

For your full sound experience: If you want to refine your sound playing even further or are looking for accessories for your sound instrument, we will also support you - not only with personal advice, but above all with our specially developed ollihess mallets and reamers. They are available in different versions so that we can find the optimum solution for you and your needs.

Sustainable and fair production

Regardless of whether we develop our products entirely ourselves or source them from carefully selected partners, we always keep one promise: every single instrument is made from sustainable and regional materials and is manufactured in small, family-run businesses in Germany. We know the production conditions well and know that our partners ensure fair payment and fair conditions. We are convinced that all of this has a huge impact on your experience with our products and, above all, on the sound.
