The playful cheerfulness of the Woodstock Chimes of Partch Windchime is a fitting tribute to the innovative composer Harry Partch. By 1969, Partch had designed 27 new instruments made to be beautiful in sound, vision, and “magical purpose”. They were tuned according to the natural overtone series of ‘just intonation”. Partch designed his instruments to involve the whole person in the art of music. The melodious sounds of the Chimes of Partch will bring this magic to your yard or garden.
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.

10/5/12 - Update - Just dropped these lovely chimes off at a charity auction. They're wonderful, but just not for us here on our windswept hill. Now we just have to hope our neighbors don't buy them....
cardboard and plastic wrapping off, and hung it right up. They sound great.
Everyone that hears them comments on how nice they sound, and what a
beautiful tone they have.
