Part of our Woodstock Reflections line, a series of chimes designed for those who want to inspire others or themselves, remember the dearly departed or spend time in quiet contemplation. All our Woodstock Reflections chimes are tuned to an ancient five note (pentatonic) tuning which sends the listener to a faraway place of peace and tranquility. 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.
