Your Guide To Buying a Wind Chime

By Yehudah Posnick

    Wind chimes have been used for thousands of years for ornamental, and even religious, purposes  (the sounds of the chimes were believed to ward off evil spirits, or invite good fortune). You can find many types of wind chimes that are pleasing to both the eye and ear. There are traditional chimes, consisting of metal or stone pipes, each of which emit a particular tone. Some employ overtones: the ringing of one pipe vibrates another pipe at a related frequency. There are also Capiz chimes, made from seashells, that also lend a unique touch.

    We've put together this guide to help you select the wind chimes that answers to your needs. It'll help you:

    • Choose the right type of wind chimes,

    • See useful tips about that type of wind chimes,    

    • Read reviews of different brands of wind chimes, and what customers are saying,

    • Select the right brand of wind chimes, and

    • Compare prices and find the best deals.

    Wind chimes can be made from a variety of materials: aluminum, copper, stone, amber, bamboo or wood, just to name a few. Wooden or bamboo chimes will be treated with wax, so that they can better endure the elements.

    • Traditional chimes: These consist of aluminum or even stone pipes that are arranged around a clapper. The clapper is attached to a wind catcher, which is typically a flat disk that is blown by the wind. Aluminum is a preferred material, since it produces long and loud sounds. Woodstock has wind chimes consisting of aluminum pipes, tuned to the notes of famous classical music: Pachelbel’s Canon, Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, Beethoven’s Für Elise, and more. Their website also has sound samples of how their chimes sound.  

    • Capiz chimes: Capiz is a province in the Philippines, which markets products made from oyster shells. Capiz wind chimes are made by hanging an assortment of these mollusk shells, so as to make a distinctive sound when the wind blows through them.

    Here are a few of the points that reviewers make when giving feedback on their car wax purchases:

    • Volume: Some customers noticed that a set of wind chimes would be too loud for indoors. So they are purely intended for outdoors use.

    • Size of the wind-catcher: Some people notice that their wind chimes work only in very inclement weather. This could be due to the size of the wind-catcher--the part of the chimes that catches the wind and thus causes the clapper to strike the pipes. If the wind-catcher is too heavy, it will take a stronger-than-average wind to get the chimes to work.

    • Length of the chimes: Chimes come in a variety of lengths. Corinthian Bells make wind chimes ranging from 27” to 78” in length. The length is important in determining where to place your wind chimes. The individual chimes will be of different lengths, with a longer chime giving a deeper note, and a shorter chime giving a higher-pitched note. The length listed for the product is from the point where you hang it until the lower tip of the wind catcher.

    • Placement of chimes: You can place chimes in your garden, or attach them near your front door, to tell you when someone enters or leaves the house. Woodstock makes a large “Heroic” windbell made from copper. Besides the use as a wind chime, it can also be used like an old-fashioned dinner call.

    • Number of pipes: The number of tubes will indicate to you the number of notes that the chimes can play. Woodstock’s Magical Mystery chimes has 10 pipes, whereas their Chimes of Westminster requires only 5 pipes.

    • Durability: People notice that aluminum metal chimes are surprisingly durable: When installed properly, they can still function properly even after years of being exposed to the elements--without any rust or corrosion. The nylon strings holding the rods in place may be sensitive to extended sun exposure.

    Woodstock--was started in 1979 by Garry and Diane Kvistad. Garry is himself a Grammy Award winning musician and instrument designer, which influences his commitment for making quality musical chimes. They also make chimes, bells and gongs, and crystal suncatchers.

    Corinthian Bells--is the brand name of the wind chimes manufactured by QMT Windchimes, founded by designer Mike Throne. They are located in Manassas Park, Virginia, and have been in business since 1986. They pride themselves on using American raw materials in making their chimes.

    Ylyycc--makes a number of tools, as well as patio, lawn, and garden products. They make a variety of wind chimes, of a number of themes: birds and nest, coins, or row chimes.

    Carson-- was founded in 1970 by Harry Carson, Sr., as distributors of gift and inspirational merchandise, garden decor products, decorative flags, chimes, and more.
