Tuned to the musical scale of the gamelan degung, the Woodstock Chimes of Java Wind Chime resounds with exotic beauty. A deep and rich-sounding chime, this piece transports you to the volcanic South Pacific where resonant gong music is heard daily. Constructed of a natural-finish ash wood circle and clapper, this chime features six silver anodized aluminum tubes and measures 50 inches in length. It is precision-tuned by a sophisticated digital process a hundred times more sensitive than the human ear, and comes with a lifetime tuning guarantee.
Woodstock Percussion Wind Chimes are tuned using a computerized tuning process in order to achieve incomparably beautiful sound. These wind chimes also use an ancient tuning system known as just intonation. Because these notes fall between the notes of a piano (which is tuned using the modern equal temperament system), the chime has a unique, authentic quality. The frequencies at which the different tubes vibrate are integrally related, thus producing the purest musical intervals. Once you hear the beautiful tones created by these magical chimes, you will understand why they are so popular around the world.
Wind Chime Length: The length of a wind chime is measured by the overall length of the chime (not tube length) - hanging hook to the end of the sail. This windchime is 50 inches long overall.
Maintenance & Care
Every part of a Woodstock Chime is weather protected. Over time, however, those layers of protection can begin to wear. To enjoy your Woodstock Chimes for years to come, we suggest the following simple maintenance tips. Periodically, apply a thin layer of Danish or lemon oil with a clean cloth to the hardwood parts. Regular oiling will help protect the wood and retard the natural aging process. The tubes of traditional Woodstock Chimes are made of anodized aluminum that will not rust when exposed to the elements. However, over time, the aluminum may show pitting as a result of environmental factors. Please note this will not affect the beautiful tones of your chimes. Use mild soap and water (or a foaming, non-abrasive cleanser) to clean the tubes, glass, or plastic parts. Try not to dampen the string.
