Woodstock Hummer Chime
- More Info
Add a colorful accent to your patio or garden. This chime���s light and airy tones ring out in even a gentle breeze, and its diminutive size means you can hang it just about anywhere. The hand-painted hummingbird windcatcher hovers below 4 silver colored tubes. The hummingbird is the smallest bird in the world. Its wings beat 56.8 times per second, vibrating the air, and creating the distinctive hum the birds are known for. A must-have for any bird lover.
Woodstock Chimes are the original, musically-tuned, high-quality windchimes known worldwide for their superior sound. When listening to a Woodstock Chime, you hear a fine musical instrument played by the wind, perfectly hand-tuned using the ancient system of ���just intonation��� based on natural harmonics. This means the frequencies at which the different tubes vibrate are related to one another by simple whole-number ratios. Tones that are related in this way produce the most beautiful musical intervals. The sonic effect is exceptionally pure and soothing.
More than 30 years ago, the first Woodstock Chime was created by founder and owner Garry Kvistad from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. As a professional musician and instrument designer, he was fascinated by the Scales of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can���t be played on a modern piano. Garry had the idea to cut and tune the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our bestselling windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Percussion, Inc. in 1979 and it remains a family-owned business in New York���s Hudson Valley.
