Deep and resonant, the Music of the Spheres Japanese Alto 50-Inch Wind Chime expresses the mystery of thought and imagination. Its distinctive tones are at once deeply soothing and provocative. The drama of its tones complements the more light-hearted Chinese and Balinese tunings to add a tranquil feel to any setting.
The Alto chime is a pleasant combination of the delicacy of the smaller chimes with the sustaining tone of the larger sizes. Just like all Music of the Spheres chimes, the Japanese Alto is handcrafted and tuned to A440, which is a standard orchestral pitch. It's made of a tempered aluminum alloy tubing that will never rust. Each tube is coated with a sleek black corrosion-resistant finish that provides durability in all kinds of outdoor environments (acid rain, salt air, etc.). All components are made in the USA.
