Woodstock Chimes Asli Arts Collection Bamboo Chime, 33-Inch, Cherry Blossom
Colorful flowers and a soothing song it's a treat for the eyes and ears. Bamboo gives our Asli Arts chimes a mellow, musical and enchanting sound unlike any other chime. Our chimes are made with pride by Balinese craftsmen. Each piece is individually hand-crafted. Non-endangered wood and bamboo are used to make these instruments of nature. In addition, each chime is hand-toned by musicians. Testing the sound of each tube, our musician craftsmen create chimes that sound as good as they look. By hand-toning each tube and selecting a range of sizes, each chime produces a unique melody. 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.
