Where To Hang My Chime
Did you know that the placement of your chime can make a difffference in how
often it rings? Each of our chimes are hand-tuned and designed to produce
beautiful tones from each gentle breeze, but the placement of your chime also
plays a part in how often it rings. Here are some things to consider when
choosing the perfect location for your chime:
Experiment with hanging your chime at difffferent heights. The velocity of the wind
tends to increase with higher elevation.
Hang your chime directly from the ring at the top of the chime. Adding a chain or
string between the wind chime and the solid structure (house or tree) to lower the
height of the chime can cause the entire chime to swing rather than just the
center string and striker causing the chime to ring less often.
Try to avoid hanging your chime within two feet of a wall, plant or anything that
may divert the flflow of the wind. You may even fifind that the screens of a
screened-in porch may be enough to impede the flflow of the breeze and prevent
your chime from ringing. Try handing your chime where the wind can reach it
from as many directions as possible. An open corner is ideal when hanging the
chime from a building.
Experiment with hanging your chime in difffferent locations throughout the year.
The prevailing winds can change seasonally
