D Major' Wind Chimes
We came up with the D Major tuning, a step up from "C" with a joyful powerful sound, much like church bells.
Using 1 1/2 inch diameter tubing in lengths from 21 inches to 31 inches, the bells are large enough to really resonate with the lightest tap. In an ordinary breeze, you'll be surprised at the sound volume of these chimes. The 1 1/2 inch x 8 inch diameter wood disk from which the bells are suspended is of maple or birch, and together with the bell clanger, puts the weight at slightly over 15 pounds for this set of Windchimes. Available with wood (shown) or stained glass disc for the windcatcher.
Island Winds suggests putting these chimes at a short distance from the home, maybe among some trees. In this location, it will sound like distant church bells. We hung them on our porch at home, and found them to be quite powerful.
Handcrafted on Prince Edward Island since 1981, these wind chimes have been designed for beauty of appearance and sound. Each has been tuned by ear using a silver flute and has a stained glass wind-catcher. Using high grade PEI lumber, braided high strength wire and rust resistant steel alloy pipes makes Island Winds chimes so durable we have a "Lifetime Plus One" guarantee.
Each set of wind chimes comes with a complimentary stained glass wind catcher. Pictures of colours shown in item pictures. Exact colours and availability can vary. If there are changes to options you will be contacted. You can also purchase other Wind Catchers for variation in decoration.
