The weighted tuning forks are typically used on the body as well as by the ears to relieve pain from inflammation such as arthritis and other joint, muscle and nerve pain.

Why Quality is Important
Our forks was recently tested 30 years after it was made. It still held the correct frequency.
Tuning forks are based on frequency. If the quality of the aluminum is poor or the manufacturing process is lax, then the frequency will not be accurate and the fork will not be harmonic (ie. have a clear, long lasting tone).
Our aluminum tuning forks are of the highest quality. They are made from impact resistance aluminum making them approximately 26% harder and giving them a ring time up to 20% longer than other manufacturers.
We have lower levels of impurities with the highest rating for surface finish per the Reynolds Aluminum Engineering Study. As are result, our material is more immune to corrosion and pitting.
All of our forks are tuned to within .5% of the indicated frequency at 20 degrees Celsius, 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Other manufacturers tune to as high as 2.5%.
All tuning forks are subject to at least three inspection processes to eliminate imperfections.
All of our tuning forks are manufactured especially for sound therapy and health care professionals.
