Tempered aluminum alloy tubing will never rust. Our corrosion-protective finish preserves chime's appearance and increases durability in hostile environments (acid rain, salt air). Heavy gauge polished stainless steel rings provide sturdy support and enduring beauty. Tough synthetic cordage is highly resistant to abrasion, ultra-violet degradation, rot and mildew. Central tube suspension with smoothly polished tube ends prevent cord abrasion. Tubes are tuned to A440, standard orchestral pitch. Solid polyethylene clappers provide superior tonal quality and outdoor durability. The aluminum windcatcher is the ideal size, weight, and shape for optimal chime performance in 8 - 10 mph wind velocity. The windcatcher hook assembly provides simple but effective method of varying the chime's activity level. Handcrafted one at a time in Austin, Texas.
