Woodstock Chimes HBRS Hummer Chime, 15 in, Hand-Painted
Product Description A Hand-Painted ruby-throated Hummingbird makes this a colorful standout. The bright sound of this sweet wind chime expresses the same happy spirit that hummingbirds bring to a garden. The Hummingbird is the smallest bird in the world. Its wings beat 56.8 timesper S, vibrating the air close to the musical note "a", creating a distinctive hum. Using the same note, We tuned our Woodstock Hummer chime to an "a" Major chord to accompany the hummingbird's flight! This Chime's windcatcher is our Hand-Painted interpretation of a ruby-throated Hummingbird. The Hummer chime is especially appealing to gardeners & bird watchers. Enjoy this windchime wherever you hum whether in your garden or in your home. In 1979, grammy award-winning musician & 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 & tuned The lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime & is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned wind chimes. Garry & 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. Amazon.com The sounds of nature are sweet, but the music of chirping birds, chattering squirrels, and rustling leaves is even sweeter when accompanied by Woodstock's computer-tuned wind chimes. Made in the USA from nonendangered hardwoods, these chimes feature a charming painted hummingbird and aluminum tubing and are treated to endure season after season of outdoor use. Company founder Garry Kvistad has developed an advanced method of tuning used on every Woodstock chime: each tube is analyzed digitally with a microphone under the tube measuring the frequency, and cutters are instructed to remove just the right amount of material to produce the most precise tuning possible. The result is a purer, more harmonious sound. Woodstock prides itself on being a socially responsible company, explaining that "through the sale of our chimes we proudly support the arts, as well as many environmental and humanitarian causes."
