I first saw these chimes at a local nursery almost 10 years ago. I had listened to every one of their other Woodstock chimes, then tried the huge King David chimes last. At the first tone, I was lost. Captivated. Transfixed. Compared to the others, this particular chime was deeper, richer, and the resonance seemed to go right through me. The resonance went on and on, and the music it makes was just breathtaking.
After a move, we discovered my old chimes (not King David) had broken strings. My husband fixed them with fishing line but they soon broke again. When I asked him about them a few months later, he wasn't sure what had happened to them. So....I said if he lost these chimes, perhaps it was time to get the awesome King David chimes? He thought I was joking, but I shopped around, and settled on the chimes sold on Amazon. Another site had them for $20. less, but I was more confident going with Amazon; they back up their products pretty well, and the other site was totally unknown to me.
Only one of our trees is big enough to hold these huge chimes; they are about 7 feet long and weigh 35 lbs. I was concerned about the occasional high winds, but the chimes are so heavy they hold their own and are not too noisy. Also, my husband was afraid the neighbors would complain, but the people behind us love them! They were wondering what the beautiful sounds were so they looked over the fence, lol. They told my husband they are high quality chimes and had beautiful sound. They sit outside and listen to them, too. :D
Another concern was perhaps they'd get stolen. After hanging them up, I discarded that worry. They are not only 35 lbs, but they would be extremely noisy to remove!
I live in AZ, and the days are usually too hot for me, so in the evenings I stretch out on a lawn chair to look at the bright stars and listen for the chimes. They never fail to carry me away, and were worth every penny. Thank you for a lovely product.
