WHEN SHOULD YOU BUY A WINDSONG CHIME
Whether for yourself or as a gift, our wind chimes are designed to bring harmony and serenity into the lives of those who own one. They make excellent gifts for all kinds of different occasions. As a birthday, christmas, engagement, wedding or thank you gift, the recipient will have a continuing reminder of your generosity and thoughtfulness and will always remember the gift came from you. For the ill and bedridden friend or relative they provide a source of comfort, healing, companionship and entertainment. They are a very special gift for the bereaved because they provide a feeling of closeness to the departed soul and a gentle reminder of the loved one whenever the wind strikes up a note.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WIND CHIME
We have designed an interactive listening experience to help you choose from the range of Windsong Chimes. The first step is to listen to the various tunings to determine the pitch and melody that suits your temperament. The sounds are of three main types. The chime in minor scale is contemplative (Abbey, Bo Bells, Rani and Celestial) and in pentatonic scale is tranquil (Willow, Concerto, Malay and Mikado) and in major scale is festive (Cathedral). To assist in this selection process every Windsong Chime is named to reflect its own musical character. This helps you identify the chime’s mood. Consider the different sizes and colours to aid in choosing a wind chime that will assure a lifetime of enjoyment.
Individual responses to the sound of wind chimes varies with each listener, their temperament and personality. To help you understand the various emotional responses the different tunings of our wind chimes can invoke, here is a guide.

Tranquility and harmony
A simple method of placing a rubber band around the middle of the timber striker will mute the notes of some of our extra-large wind chimes but increase the harmonics to create a humming resonance. Our tranquil and harmonic wind chimes have been tuned to resonate within you in your peaceful surroundings.

WHERE TO HANG YOUR WINDSONG CHIME
The quality of the materials used in the manufacture of Windsong Chimes means that you can hang your wind chimes in many places in and around the home. However to protect it from the harsher elements of the weather we do recommend that they be placed in a semi-protected position. When placing your wind chime, think of it as a pot plant. Move it around until you are happy with how it looks, and most importantly, how it sounds. That perfect little spot you had in mind might not have enough breeze, or worse still, may be a wind tunnel. Consider hanging your chime inside where you can control its sound by opening and closing a door or window. If they don't ring often indoors you can play them each time you pass, which is still very effective.
The ringing bright sounds of some of our wind chimes are ideal for bringing new positive energy to clear old negative energy. Windchimes can be hung indoors or out. Hang wind chimes to activate and awaken the area to create more energy and movement in your environment and your life. A Feng Shui Consultant will be able to advise you in more detail regarding the optimum placement of your wind chime.
