tuning forks are made of a special aluminum alloy that is
LEAD-FREE. Each tuning fork is heat-treated and is guaranteed
to be accurate to .25%*.
There is no better accuracy than .25%*.
Each set and each individual fork comes in a protective velvet
bag for storage and travel.
Our Tuning Forks
are specifically designed for
Healing & Sound Therapy
Aluminum Alloy tuning
forks are designed for health and healing. Unlike stainless steel, they emit more
pure, more vibrant, louder and longer lasting tones.
And contrary to steel forks which create a single note, aluminum
alloy forks are specifically designed to create rich overtones.
Overtones are different
octaves of the same note. The effect is similar to the Tibetan
monks deeply moving chants. The rich overtones produced by aluminum
alloy tuning forks create a deeper and richer experience.
Overtones create an atmosphere where one can connect with
their multi-dimensional essence.
Aluminum alloy forks are
softer than steel forks, so care must be taken to protect
them from rough handling. The good news is, our manufacturer's
alloy formula makes a much harder and studier aluminum tuning
fork than others on the market providing lasting durability.
I have been using these
forks for years now in my private practice and I absolutely love
them. I've never felt them deteriorate in any way. They can be
used individually for a rich single frequency, or in
pairs to create sacred geometric music intervals. I am very
proud to bring these exceptional tuning forks to you!
NOTE: Hz represents
the number of cycles per second (cps) that the forks vibrate.

*All tuning forks,
whether aluminum alloy or stainless steel, are affected to a
slight degree by temperature and where you are in relation to
sea level. Accuracy is not only determined by the design and
material of the tuning fork, but also by an accurate HAND
There is no difference
between the weighted and unweighted tuning forks in terms of
the accuracy of their frequency or their efficacy.
The only difference is
that the weighted ends make the prongs move more and therefore
more vibration is translated down to the handle. So when the end
of weighted tuning fork's handle is placed on the body, the person
receiving the treatment will physically feel the vibration more
than they would if an unweighted tuning fork were used.
We cannot put weights
on tuning forks above 512 hz.
The reason is that the higher the frequency, the shorter the
prong and when you put weights on the prongs, the prongs must
be even shorter to produce the correct frequency. Therefore,
there comes a point where the prongs are too short for us to
be able to put weights on them.
Way to HOLD Tuning Forks
Always hold only the
stem handle at
the bottom of the fork. If the prongs touch anything, even someone's hair, the prongs will stop vibrating.
See illustration below:
the Tuning Forks
There are several ways
to tone your tuning forks. Play with these methods to see which
ones work best for you.
- for the softest sound, tap tuning forks on a hard
muscle such as the thigh near the knee or the firmest part
of the palm of your hand.
- for a slightly louder
sound, tap tuning
forks individually or in pair on the Tuning
- for a loud muffled sound, tap gently on your knee cap.
- for a louder sound, strike
the outside flat side of one of the prongs near the tip with
the Rubber Mallet.
One of the best and easiest ways is to simply FLICK the
flat surface of a prong with your FINGERNAIL. For short pronged
forks, I get a very nice sound by swiping the end corner of
the prong across a hard surface.
- for the loudest sound, very GENTLY tap two tuning forks against
each other or
tap a single fork on the edge of a hard surface such as a
careful not to nick them;
of this method is at your own risk. NICKED tuning forks CANNOT be returned for
a refund or exchange.
Ways to USE the Tuning Forks
Tone a single fork
or two forks together to create a harmonic and either
hold or move above the body or place stem end on:
- any tissue of the
body such as bones, organs and muscles
- acupuncture points or meridian energy lines
(known as Soundpuncture or Sonopuncture)
- reflex zones of feet, hands, ears or head
- chakras or transition points between
chakras, front or back
- a crystal as you
direct the crystal toward the recipient
- any vessel containing
flower essences, gem elixers, homeopathics, purified water,
or any vibrational remedy
- planetary acupuncture
points at various
locations on planet Earth
- sweep through the subtle
layers of energy field
- stroke meridians
- place on meridian
- when toning two forks
together, you can use to balance left/right, top/bottom,
or front/back of the body
- move through a room
to fill a space
with a particular frequency
- move all around a person to
clear discordant energies and fill their aura with
a particular frequency
CARE of your Tuning Forks
Forks that are nicked or change frequency due to misuse are not
- Keep them at average
room temperature for accurate frequency. They were tuned
at 72º F, which is ideal, but plus or minus 10º will
not affect the frequency.
- It's ok to have them
in a hot or cold environment for short periods of time, but
DO NOT store them in extreme temperatures as this
could permanently change their frequency.*
- Tuning Forks that
have been temporarily in a hot or cold environment need to come
back to room temperature to obtain correct frequency.
- Store in a cool, dry
not in use. Damp, humid or salty ocean conditions over time can
corrode the metal. For those living in these conditions, it is
advisable to store your dry tuning forks and pouch in a zip lock
- They will tarnish
over time, but
that does not affect the frequency at all. It is just
a change in their shiny appearance. Just lightly polish with
a green plastic kitchen scrubber. You may also want to clean
them after removing the tarnish(see below).
- You can clean the
forks with a mild dish soap. Wash and rinse with
mild temperature water and dry thoroughly.
- DO NOT hit the forks
against anything hard,
as they might nick and that could change the frequency.*
- DO NOT drop the forks as this could nick them or loosen
a weight.* If a weight should come loose,
a simple allen wrench can be used to tighten it. Be sure
the weight is seated in the groove before tightening.
- DO NOT hit a weight
on anything hard
as this could not only loosen the weight, but permanently damage
- DO NOT adjust the
weight on the end of the prong,
because this will change the frequency.*
