Product Description

Product Description

In music, the word encore means “more” as called by an audience at the end of a concert. The Woodstock Encore Collection Chimes are designed to be “more” windchime in every way—more colours, sizes and value. Each windchime is precisely hand-tuned to a 5 note pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale is particularly well-suited to windchimes because all of the notes are harmonious. Any combination of Encore Chimes will always play beautifully together, creating a rich soundscape.The Encore Collection series includes the Chimes of Mercury, Chimes of Mars, Chimes of Polaris, Chimes of Pluto, Chimes of Earth, Chimes of Saturn, and Chimes of Neptune.Woodstock Chimes are the original, musically tuned, high quality windchimes 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 tubes vibrate are related to one another by simple whole number ratios. Tones that are related in this way produce the most beautiful musical intervals. The sonic effect is exceptionally pure and soothing.More than 30 years ago, the first Woodstock Chime was created by founder and owner Garry Kvistad from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. As a professional musician and 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 and tune 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 bestselling windchimes. Garry, and his wife Diane, founded Woodstock Percussion, Inc. in 1979 and it remains a family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley.

We have a few windows that we open at home which are still without wind chimes so we have about 6 or 7 now and always looking for another one. Thankfully these days you can usually find previews of the chime sounds online to give an impression of what you will hear (in a decent breeze, at least).

I tend to prefer larger chimes and usually rate smaller ones less highly simply because they can all start sounding alike at the smaller sizes (the longest tube on this one is 7 inches, but we have others with longest tubes at 15 inches that produce nice comparatively deep resonant tones). The length of the tube influences the harmonics that it can produce. So, for me, buying a smaller chime becomes more of an exercise in colour matching! Having said that, the bronze tubes seem to be slightly mellower than silver tubes, slightly less bright-sounding, but at these sizes that difference is small.

The Amazon description for some reason says 6 tubes, but the chime is pentatonic (5 tones) and therefore has 5 tubes. Larger chimes will also have room for more tubes, and our two largest chimes cover an octave (8 tubes, obviously) which does wonders for the variety of tones and chords the chime can produce.

For a nice background sound, all chimes work for me, and as a small 5-tube chime, this is amongst the best, since Woodstock make efforts to tune their tubes and create pleasant harmonious chimes as opposed to some of the nasty discordant ones you can still find if you look hard enough.

I was really delighted with this charming wind chime. It hangs by the front door and makes a lovely sound when the wind blows. Also good value.

We were bought one of these as a present and have enjoyed the beautiful sounds all year round so bought one fir a friend who had always commented how lovely and tuneful it always sounds no matter how windy it is.
I would recommend this product to anyone it's worth the money, don't waste your money on other products they just sound tinny.

Working after over a year in the garden and has good relaxing chimes.
Thread at the top to hang is not great and broke within 6 months. The threads should be water resistant, better quality and needs to be sorted for the price paid by the seller.

Excellent service, excellent product. I now have three Woodstock Chimes and will soon be ordering more. These are the BEST and well worth paying a little extra for. Comforting, soothing and neighbour friendly. One will never feel lonely or depressed with a few WOODSTOCK CHIMES around.

I use wind chimes not in the standard way (I live in a small flat in a social housing scheme), but I take them out to wild places and make professional grade recordings of natural soundscapes including the wind chimes. The Chimes of Mars were among the three different really small and light sets of chimes that I bought in the spring of 2013 to take out on some of my Cornwall coast path hikes, to suspend on tripods on clifftops so that I could have the chimes sounds in soundscapes of often really interesting and sometimes dramatic sea action.

The Mars chimes are actually the next-to-smallest / highest-pitched of those that I bought. To my ears they are getting close to as high as a set of chimes could go while one would still be able to clearly hear and differentiate between the pitches of each note. Go anything much higher and one would hear rather undifferentiated tinklings. Their sound is more penetrating and 'carrying' than that of various other similar-size Woodstock chimes, apparently because the walls of their tubes are a little thicker relative to their diameter - which can be an advantage or a nuisance, depending on one's own situation. For my purposes I put the small chimes relatively close to the recorder and the larger ones further back, in order to get a good balance, but the Mars chimes always need to be a bit further back than the Mercury or rather larger Polaris chimes.

The tuning of these chimes is to a really strange scale, which you may or may not like. I wasn't too sure of it myself at first, but it did actually come out with a strange beauty all of its own in the various clifftop soundscapes that I recorded. It also made an incredibly beautiful and musical combination with any of the pentatonic chimes, such as the Woodstock Pluto, Polaris and Mercury chimes.
