The clear sound of this chime is musically tuned to notes derived from the proportion of the Golden Ratio given to us by ancient Greece. The stepped square top and square tube design of this chime was inspired by the craftsman style of architecture popularized during the Arts and Crafts movement. This movement made designs based on the inherent harmony of mathematical proportions and their frequent occurrence in nature, homage once again, to the Golden Ratio. The teaching of William Morris, a leader of the Arts and Crafts movement in England, greatly influenced designs created at the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony here in Woodstock, NY in the early 20th century. This chime, along with many of our other products, joins this lively heritage.Over 30 years ago, Grammy award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned 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 best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979 and still develop the chimes today. It remains a family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley.

I've always loved deeper chimes, but that usually means buying a larger set. My breath was taken away when I heard these though. Because they're square there's a lot more space for the sound to resonate in giving them a much deeper sound than what you'd expect for a chime of it's size and price. As another reviewer said, if you've never had a chime before, this one will spoil you for any others!
I've had it in a southern facing spot for a couple months now, partially shielded from the elements, but we've had some hail while it's been up and it shows no signs of wear. I may oil the wood pieces every 6-12 months, if they're starting to show wear, but I expect it will hold up just fine for many years.
As others have noted, the chime does require a somewhat stiff breeze to play; you should be able to hear the leaves rustling. It's really at home in the Colorado foothills for sure though.
They have a nice tone somewhere in what I'd call midrange, and really pleasing sustain. The sound is loud enough for my back patio but not so loud that it should bother your neighbors. I can just barely hear it in the house through my sliding patio doors when they're closed.
We have a foursquare house (aka "Prairie Box") and these fit perfectly with the look of the house and sound is very sweet and pure. They sound clearly in a gentle breeze, but don't go crazy even when it gets pretty windy so they give a great, but not intrusive, ambiance a good amount of the time.
My sister recommended Woodstock Chimes to me and I ended up buying 2 for presents (1 for my sister) and 1 for me. The sound on this particular chime has a mellow, mid-range, not to high and tinkly. LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!
This is NOT a glowing review because I got a discount... it's just a really great chime. Thanks Woodstock and Amazon!
I've heard much larger chimes that don't compare to the sound of this piece of work. If you like chimes, you will love this one. If you've never had one before, this one will spoil you for any of the others.
