I like wind harps and Aeolian harps too, they are so surreal:



I became obsessed with aeolian harps after my motherís funeral in April.

There was this ring ... sort of like those Tibetan bowls, that nobody else heard but me. I looked high & low & all I could see were two little wind chimes hanging from a tree.

I had never heard of these harps; I came home & literally googled ď singing chime in cemeteryĒ & obviously that pulled up a lot of new age/metaphysical stuff. Finally I found the tone that I had heard. Iím hooked but I canít find one to buy that is under $800!

Iíve tried making one & there is no future for me in handcrafting, whatsoever. I wonder, if that continuous ďzingĒ was from those two wind chimes hung close together?

Itís like the Sirens song to me.

I donít like the random clacketey, clanking, out of tune ones though .

I really dislike windchimes, too. It's just more noise on top of too much noise.
That said, a friend has some bamboo chimes. They make lovely, resonant noise that doesn't carry very far.

Do you have close neighbors? If so, do them a favor and forego the wind chimes unless you could be vigilant about stopping them from clanging at night.

They come in various sizes and musical scales: https://whimsicalwinds.com/Manufactu...ls_Wind_Chimes
I agree with Corinthian Bells - we've got three different sizes, one of which is pretty good sized. Love the sounds of even the small ones!

Maybe the OP lives on acreage as we do - no one close enough to hear them, and WE enjoy them.
