Soundiron are offering 50% off Hopkin Instrumentarium: Tines & Echoes for a limited time, now only $19.00, (usually $39.00).
Tines & Echoes is a unique hand-crafted tuned percussion instrument created by instrument designer and sound sculptor Bart Hopkin. It’s a pentagonal sound box with 25 chromatically tuned metal tines that each have a pair of sympathetic strings spanning the instrument’s sound board. Rather than tuning the sympathetic strings to their primary tines, they are tuned randomly, so that vibrations resonate different string combinations bound to other tines. When the tines are plucked, they produce a sharp, crisp water-drop note that reverberates through the sympathetic strings and across the instrument in a soft ghostly ring, reminiscent of the celestial wash you hear when playing the undamped top octave of a piano.
Soundiron have faithfully sampled tine plucks and percussive hand slaps on the instrument body, with two stereo mic positions. We also include a wide selection custom FX presets and lots of our signature sound designed ambient and cinematic content, created from the raw acoustic source to give you complete creative freedom.
