Chimes of Olympos®

$85.99

The original Woodstock Chime!

This mysterious and soothing chime is tuned to the ancient Greek pentatonic scale devised by Olympos, Phrygian flutist and lyre player of the seventh century B.C. Olympos is given credit for the introduction of the flute into Greece from Phrygia, thus adding a new instrumental sound to that country. It is said that Olympos was also very inventive with rhythm, which just may qualify him as the original King of Rhythm and Blues. Because of these contributions, Plutarch, the Greek historian and biographer, named Olympos the father of Greek music. Nearly three thousand years later, the bluesy scale of Olympos, tuned in the pure system of "just intonation," is still heard today in the Japanese koto and in this Woodstock Chime.

    chimes of Olympus are my favorite since the late 1980’s !!

    I don’t even know how many different sets of the Olympus i’ve had over the last 35+ years. They have fed my soul at every home I’ve lived in, and I’ve given many as wedding or birthday gifts. They stand alone for me, as the BEST.

    Enjoying since 1984

    Bought these up in Monterey, CA back in 1984. A perfect place to sell windchimes as it's always breezy / windy there! Very Japanese tone stood out dramatically from all the typical happy / tinkly chimes. Love the sound & really really appreciate the craftsmanship that has lasted these 40 years 💖

    I STILL REMEMBER MY FIRST TIME HEARING WOODSTOCK CHIMES

    In Maine on a vacation, many many years ago, we were walking up a hill to the Bed and Breakfast we were staying in when I heard music playing. At first, I thought it was an instrument of some type but as we got closer, we discovered it was these absolutely beautiful set of Chimes. Up to this time, I was not very fond of chimes as they usually sounded unpleasant and just not what I wanted to hear. But these were so delightful and a pleasure to hear. Soon after we purchased a set of the Woodstock Chimes of Olympus (which was what we were actually hearing) and a set of the Chimes of Parch and Chimes of Lun. I love to listen to them as a phenomenal uplifting experience during the day or when I awake at night with a little breeze blowing.
