What is a wind chime?

What is a Chime

Wind Chimes have their origin in the old church bells. These bells became tubular in the 1800's orchestra setting to get way from sounding like church bells. These orchestra chimes were struck by a rawhide covered mallet to get their chime. This striking action is taken over by air moving a fixed mallet in wind chimes. Of course this is the forerunner of the modern metal wind chimes. These chimes can mimic anything from the church bells of old to a soothing small stream. Depending on the size and design of your wind chime you can create any atmosphere you would like in your garden.
