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 tube is tuned so precise; it is considered a musical instrument. Each tube 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 tube, increasing cord life 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 top and wind catcher are made from weather resistant hardwood and rubbed with three coats of marine varnish to preserve the natural luster. The magnetic clapper can "turn off" your chime. Just slide the clapper up and it will stick to the top of the frame.

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 tube is made of a specially developed metal alloy that is guaranteed to never rust.

Tips

·         The higher you hang your chime the more wind velocity it will be subject to. Experiment with your chime in different locations, if possible.

·         Hang your chime where it will be clear of obstructions, walls, trees etc.

·         Hang your wind chime from a strong hook or bracket, and ensure that it is balanced.

·         Hang your chime where the wind can reach it from as many directions as possible.

Catholic hermit

I listened to dozens of wind chimes by several manufacturers before deciding on this one to hang outside my hermitage. It was superior to all others to foster a thoughtful, contemplative atmosphere; whether in a spring breeze or a winter gale.

Quality + Length = one wind chime worth more than many collections

I have had hand-tuned all-brass chimes, Balinese windmill bamboo gamelan chimes, etc. But to hear this chime is to learn that chimes are like pipe organs. You don't need any number of small-pipe organs if you own just one with big pipes. I also like the clunk-clunk of bamboo chimes. However I think the highest nobility for chimes is to have good metal with reverberations: each strike produces vibrations for a few seconds. The Cathedral chime tops all others in this regard.

Beautiful Melodic Tone - Just Perfect !!

These hand tuned Tabernacle Wind Chimes are one of the best purchases I've EVER made. A quality product - wonderful workmanship and materials. The pitch and tone are just so lovely ... reminds me of the bells at my Parish Church. Very calming and relaxing tone. It's obvious that these chimes are hand tuned - the tone is just perfect. NOT a tinny sound at all.

BACK FOR ANOTHER!

I purchased my first chimes last spring. I wondered at the time if they would truly sound like steeple bells...and they do! I have left them out over winter - and, was afraid they might be damaged by rough, winter weather. They are beautiful as ever. I did purchase an insurance set yesterday - I would be most unhappy to ever be without my beautiful chimes! Especially enjoyable at the end of the day!! If you love GOOD chimes, then don't miss out getting these!

Beautiful Sweet Memories

Purchased as anniversary gift for my parents. These chimes are beautiful sounding and fills the void for my mother after moving, of hearing 35 years of church bells. My mother is so happy and content to hear these chimes. She now has the perfect porch, perfect view, and heavenly sounding chimes.
