Heroic Windbell - Large, Antique Copper
This handcrafted steel bell has deep resonance and plays beautifully in the wind.
This handcrafted, wind-activated bell, with its bold tone and design, functions nicely as a welcome bell at any entrance to your home or garden. We tone our bells to unite two important ways the instrument vibrates. One is the sound of the bell itself and the other is the hollow chamber inside the bell that acts like an organ pipe. The slots on the sides of the bell are the secret to this unique coupling. The result is a rich sound with much depth and beauty. This steel bell has been coated with a handsome, durable finish, so you can enjoy it for years to come. Hang your Heroic Windbell in a breezy spot and let it play in the wind.
My wife absolutely loves chimes, and her passion has become an affinity for me as well. We found a couple of these chimes at a local Orscheln Farm & Home store, one for about $95, the other about $135. Bought both as gifts for wife's birthday in July 2023. Well, the larger chime wind paddle string broke and the paddle fell off, so now there's a dangling ball but almost no "chime" sounds. Think they'll offer to send some new string to replace/repair the chime, along with instructions for the repair? I'll wait...
cannot figure out how to hang this so it still sits on the floor of the dining room. VERY heavy and don't want it to fall down on any one. Need to think it through more.
I love the sound of this Windbell. It is one of my favorite sounds. So soothing I find these chimes.
Love the low gong sound….hung it near a waterfront dock to call the boaters and fishermen in to dinner!
