Undestanding Chime Measurements

Understanding Chime Measurements

Understanding how wind chimes are measured allows you to make the best informed purchasing decision.

The industry standard measures from the very top of the hanging ring to the bottom of the wind sail. There are many other factors including tube length, tube diameter, and tube thickness that affect the overall sound, tone, richness. But, one of the basic considerations is simply the “size”.

Smaller or shorter chimes tend to have a higher-pitch tone. Bigger or longer chimes tend to have a deeper tone. It’s really a matter of personal preference. Do you prefer the peaceful, bell tower sound of a larger chime, or the bright, bird-like symphony of a smaller chime?

Our chimes range in size from 18” up to 45”. Look around our site and listen for yourself.
