The Asli Arts 35.5 Inch Bass Fish Wind Chime is just what you need to add a casual, fun look and relaxed feel to your deck or porch. The tuned bamboo chimes play melodious notes each time the wind blows, while the realistic wood bass swims about on top. The mellow musical sound soothes your body and mind, making you feel one with nature and bringing a sense of tranquility to your surroundings.
Made from bamboo, one of the fastest-growing natural, renewable resources, this weather-resistant chime features a hand-painted bass, hand-carved from non-endangered wood. The bamboo pieces are hand-sanded to a smooth, silky finish and multiple layers of weather-resistant varnish are applied to achieve a hard, glossy finish. This process imparts a uniquely elegant look, reflecting the natural textures of bamboo in an attractive spiral pattern. Each of the five bamboo tubes, hung from durable nylon cord, is individually hand-carved and hand-tuned by craftsmen in Bali. Measures 35.5 inches in overall length.
Caring for your Chime
This chime is varnished for lasting beauty and outdoor use. Small cracks are normal in bamboo. To avoid large cracks and fading, do not hang in direct sunlight or near heaters. The chime should be brought indoors in severely cold winter weather. To clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth.

To extend the life of your chime:
We have taken a number of precautions to ensure our Asli Arts bamboo chimes are the highest quality bamboo chime in the marketplace. Our manufacturers produce only for us, allowing us to ensure a high standard of quality control. In addition, our manufacturers harvest their bamboo only during the best time of year and properly dry the bamboo before making the chimes, both of which reduce the risk of cracks in the bamboo. Finally, all Asli Arts chimes are inspected before they leave our U.S. warehouse.
Bamboo is sensitive to humidity and sudden temperature changes. Despite all our precautions, infrequently, cracks in bamboo occur as the bamboo expands and contracts in reaction to climate changes. Hairline cracks are not of concern; they are normal to bamboo and will not affect the sound of your chimes. What's more, hairline cracks generally do not develop into larger cracks.
