Woodstock Chimes DCVD17 The Original Guaranteed Musically Tuned Chime, Verdigris
Sleek & elegant, the Encore collection chimes harmonize together & Act in concert with Mother Nature, just like the planets - the reason for the celestial names & reference in this series. Named after the Roman god of War, Mars is the 4th planet from the sun. Its nickname comes from the iron oxide that is so prevalent on its surface, which gives it a mysterious reddish appearance & inspires the design for the chimes of Mars series. Woodstock Chimes are the original, musically-tuned, high-quality wind chimes 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 chime tubes vibrate are related to one another by simple whole# ratios. Tones that are related in this way produce the most beautiful musical intervals. The sonic effect is exceptionally pure & soothing. Woodstock stands behind every product they make with a one-year & a lifetime tuning on their musically tuned chimes. Tuned to beautiful melodies & scales from around the world & available in a wide range of styles, songs & sizes, you can choose the Woodstock Chime that speaks to your soul. How it all began - Garry & his wife Diane founded Woodstock Percussion, in 1979 & It remains a family-owned business in New York's Hudson Valley. Grammy award-winning musician Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. As a professional musician & 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 & tune the lawn chair chime tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime & is still one of our bestselling wind chimes.
