Woodstock Sandstone Wind Chime
This understated chime has a wonderful tone. The sweeping sound of this chime is the result of a special tuning using the “Golden Ratio.” This tuning, discovered by the ancient Greeks, can be found throughout nature. Sandstone has been a feature of many a striking vista and has been used to decorate for centuries. Sandstone often includes hints of Feldspar, Quartz, Mica and Gypsum. We blended turquoise-color beads with a decorative, faux sandstone windcatcher. Enhance your vista with the Woodstock Sandstone Chime. This chime carries a lifetime tuning guarantee. In 1979, Grammy Award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned 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 best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane still develop the chimes today as part of their family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley. Woodstock Chimes - The World's Favorite Windchime.
