This Woodstock wind chime is part of the Windsinger chime series. The chimes within this collection are tuned to lower registers and are fashioned after the original designs of Stephen Burnham. The bold, elegant appearance of the chime complements the rich, beautiful tones it plays when blown by the breeze. Because Windsinger chimes are made with extra thick-walled aluminum, they resonate much longer than any other chimes and produce enduring harmonies that are beyond compare.
Because this high-quality wind chime weighs 7 pounds, special precautions should be taken when hanging the chime. Please see the specifications tab for more information regarding proper installation.
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 system of equal temperament), 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 54 inches long overall.

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.
