Repairing Your Woodstock Chimes
Does your Woodstock Chime need a little TLC?
We offer repair kits for you DIY types who would like to "freshen up" your chime.
The repair kit you need depends on what chime you have. Here are some quick steps to make it easy to select the correct repair kit for your Woodstock Chime.
What Woodstock Chime do you have?
We sell repair kits for our Encore Chimes and for our classic Signature Chimes.
The best way to figure out if your chime is a Signature or Encore series is by looking at the windcatcher hanging at the bottom of the chime. Encore Chimes have a diamond-shaped windcatcher. Signature Chimes have our classic "paddle" windcatcher shape.
If your chime has something other than those two shapes, it is a Signature Chime, but we do not have a repair kit for that chime. Feel free to email us at email@example.com to explore what your option are.
Which chime repair kit do you need?
In order to find the right repair kit, you will need to measure the diameter of your chime top (the piece from which all the tubes hang. This measurement should be either 3.5", 5.25", 7" or 8.25".
Once you have your measurement, you can shop for the repair kit that matches your chime.
Here's the sizes for some of our best-selling chimes:
Amazing Grace Chime – Small
Amazing Grace Chime - Medium
Pachelbel Canon Chime
Encore Cimes of Pluto
Encore Chimes of Venus
Amazing Grace Chime - Large
Encore Chimes of Earth
