Product Overview

The sandy white beaches and sparkling blue waters of Paradise lie just outside your backdoor with this delightful-sounding chime. Light and spirited, it is tuned to a musical scale called saih gender wayang from the South Pacific Island of Bali. Originating in the playful music of the shadow puppet play, this scale comes alive with each movement of the wind. This Woodstock Chime will bring rich harmonies to your gazebo or veranda. Woodstock Chimes are the original, musically-tuned, high-quality windchimes known worldwide for their superior sound. When listening to a Woodstock Chime, you hear a fine musical instrument played by the wind, perfectly hand-tuned using the ancient system of ?just intonation? based on natural harmonics. This means the frequencies at which the different tubes vibrate are related to one another by simple whole-number ratios. Tones that are related in this way produce the most beautiful musical intervals. The sonic effect is exceptionally pure and soothing. More than 30 years ago, the first Woodstock Chime was created by founder and owner Garry Kvistad from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. As a professional musician and instrument designer, he was fascinated by the Scales of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can?t be played on a modern piano. Garry had the idea to cut and tune the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our bestselling windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Percussion, Inc. in 1979 and it remains a family-owned business in New York?s Hudson Valley.FeaturesHand-crafted aluminum wind chime tuned to the traditional scale used in balinese gamelan ensemblesInnovative design, superior quality, and beautiful sound5 Silver-colored aluminum tubes; cherry wood top, clapper and wind catcherCreate a tropical paradise in your own outdoor space with the calm and peaceful notes of this beautiful woodstock chimeDurable, braided nylon cord; 19-inches from the top wooden piece to the bottom of the wind catcher; longest tube is 14-inches
