Overview

Must be heard! Special acoustic effect makes "2001" sound like a million!

Our Magical Mystery Chimes feature a musical phenomenon known as Octave Doubling. Here's how it works - you remember the Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Do scale from The Sound of Music? The "Do" notes that come at the start and end of this scale are the same note, an octave apart. Notes separated by an octave are considered harmonically equivalent and "ring" together in a way that adds a pleasing sound to the music. Our Magical Mystery Chimes take this theory to the extreme - each note of the wind chime is matched with its "octave double". Never before used in windchimes, this special tuning heightens the harmonics, creating a song that must be heard to be believed.

Our Space Odyssey Chime is tuned to the intervals of the first notes of the famous symphonic poem, Also sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss, more commonly known as the powerful musical opening to Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The chime-within-a-chime design couples notes in four octaves which exponentially increases the soundscape and quadruples the octave doubling effect!

This chime carries a lifetime tuning guarantee.

When I first listened to the sound of these chimes online, I knew someday I would place an order for them. I now have them and they are hanging from a tree limb in my yard. With every gentle breeze, I get a sound that reminds me of something profoundly beautiful, like Gregorian Chants. These chimes really have a hauntingly beautiful sound that adds a peaceful sanctuary-like ambience to my backyard. Was this comment helpful? yes no (0 people found this comment helpful, 0 did not)

These were a gift for my mother. She opened the package on a windy Christmas morning, and we hung it out on the front porch. The sound is symphonic and haunting, saturating the air with a peaceful awareness of moments lost in time, both melancholy and uplifting, as a soul shadowing its body, transparent and content with itself. These are now on my wish list. Was this comment helpful? yes no (1 people found this comment helpful, 0 did not)

I was worried that it wasn't going to sound like it does on the web site, I was pleasantly surprised. It sounds exactly like the way it does on the web site. I was also skeptical about spending as much as I did for a chime. I have no regrets there either. I'm really happy with the quality, the sound, the overtones, the sustain, the look, workmanship. Yes, I would recommend it to a to a friend. Was this comment helpful? yes no (1 people found this comment helpful, 1 did not)

A wondrous addition to the household! Its many cosmic tones are at times more worthy of attention than some of the talk tones that get uttered by the family... Was this comment helpful? yes no (3 people found this comment helpful, 2 did not)
