About us

Woodstock Chimes offers a unique variety of high quality, affordable musical gifts from around the world that inspire, entertain and bring pleasure to people of all ages. We design and sell the world-famous Woodstock Chimes and distribute a line of award-winning musical instruments and toys called the Woodstock Music Collection. My wife, Diane, and I started Woodstock Percussion, Inc. in 1979. We are a family-owned business located in New York's beautiful Hudson Valley. In addition to being the founder and owner of Woodstock Chimes, I am a professional musician. I tour and record with the world-renowned percussion group, NEXUS, as well as with Steve Reich. My background in music explains my strong commitment to fine tuning and great sound - which is what makes our products appealing to everyone and unique to the gift industry. I am proud of every product we make and hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do.
