Some wind chimes come equipped with adjustable or removable wind catchers that help you adjust sensitivity to the wind. As always the sound is determined by the material it's made of, so it's not possible to know exactly how it will sound to you until you get it home. If you have this option you'll have to "play it by ear" until you get your favorite tune. You can also make a daily adjustment depending on how windy it is. Be careful, no adjustment will make up for a blustery day. Install easily removable hooks to take your wind chimes down in heavy storms.
