What is the Difference: Weighted vs. Classic Tuning Forks?

Size: The weighted tuning forks are larger and heavier compared to the classic tuning forks. As a result, they vibrate longer and stronger, requiring less frequent striking. This is particularly useful in professional settings when working with clients. On the other hand, the classic tuning forks offer a subtle and soothing vibration that appeals to those who prefer a gentler experience. They are particularly popular as a meditation bell during gentle practices or rituals and can also be used on sensitive areas like the head and face.

Round weights: Our tuning forks are expertly crafted by hand using durable stainless steel, a superior alternative to the commonly used lightweight, inexpensive aluminum. With the precision design, our forks eliminate the need for bulky round weights at the top, allowing for more steel to be used and resulting in a longer, more efficient vibration that requires less striking. Additionally, our tuning forks maintain their tuning for a lifetime as there are no round weights that can move and become misaligned.

Cork handle: Our weighted tuning forks are similar in weight to aluminum forks with round weights, and to assist practitioners with handling, we've designed a special durable synthetic cork handle in an ergonomic shape. This makes it easy to hold and use the forks for extended periods of time, while also ensuring that vibrations are kept within the tuning fork and not transferred into the user's hand.

Look: the weighted version of the tuning fork has a brushed steel finish with square edges. In contrast, the classic version has a mirror-like polished chrome steel surface with rounded edges.
