Hand-crafted, Symphonic Quality Chimes
Your satisfaction is guaranteed when you buy your Music of The Spheres ® Wind Chimes at Songbird Garden!
Since 1989, Music of the Spheres®, Inc. has been making the best wind chimes in the world, with beautiful perfect tones and tunings, remarkable sustain and industrial durability. Cylinders are black powder-coated aluminum alloy tuned to the standard orchestral pitch of A440. The secret is the thickness of the tubes and perfection of the quality control. The activity level is adjustable to your preference. These are wind instruments, not mere wind chimes.
They are available in 5 sizes with 9 scales, plus the Westminster and Basso Profundo. Smaller chimes have higher pitches; the larger the chime, the deeper the pitch. Chime sizes are designed so that their pitch ranges overlap and complement each other.
Designed for outdoor use, they are warranted for 7 years for the Soprano, Mezzo Soprano and Alto and a full 15 years for the Tenor, Bass, and Basso Profundo.
Made in the USA
