J.W. Stannard has long been recognized as one of the premier wind chime manufacturers. According to the most recent research, 85-Percent of responding consumers bought J.W. Stannard s chimes because of the sound quality. EACH bell is individually hand-tuned to ensure that every chime plays exactly the notes inscribed on the wind catcher. The sound is so precise, it is considered a musical instrument. Each bell will maintain the chime s perfect pitch and never rust. Protective nylon grommets are used on the chimes to minimize each cord's contact with each bell, increasing cord life by 700-Percent and producing a clearer, cleaner sound. Removable hangers slip out to wrap around tree branches or any closed support. Diamond Line, the indestructible fiber used to tether satellites, holds the Stannard chimes together. The tops and wind catchers are made from weather resistant hardwoods and hand-rubbed with three coats of marine varnish to preserve their natural luster. The musical notes played by the chime are silkscreened on the hardwood wind catcher.
A JW Stannard Wind Chime requires very little
maintenance. Depending on how much rain and sun the wind chime is exposed to,
the wood top and clapper may periodically need some wood protection product to
help preserve its original beauty. As well, each bell is made of a specially
developed metal alloy that is guaranteed to never rust.
