Wind chimes that can play the notes of your favorite tune

We have several wind chimes hanging from our front porch including the one shown in the image above. I love the relaxing sound of a wind chime as the breeze blows against it. But my wind chimes don’t play a recognizable tune. They make more of a tinkling, pinging, dinging, and donging type of sound. So imagine my surprise while watching the show Handcrafted America, when I learned that there’s a company that makes hand tuned wind chimes that incorporate 8 notes from your favorite song.

The father and son team of Davis Blanchard Wind Chimes hand make chimes from galvanized steel piping at their Austin, Texas studio. Using special algorithms, they cut the pipes to specific lengths so the appropriate notes ring out when they chime. Will the wind chimes play the exact sequence of notes so you’ll hear your favorite song when the wind blows? No, probably not. But the right notes are there, so you never know when you might hear a snippet in the right order.

They offer wind chimes with the notes from popular tunes like Amazing Grace to Purple Haze for $80 and custom made chimes for $128. For more info visit davisblanchardwindchimes.com.

  2. These sound really nice on their website. I live in Austin and while I never heard of this company we also have another manufacturer here called “Music of the Spheres”. I first saw a gigantic one hanging from a tree at my local plant nursery. They are the most amazing wind chimes I have ever heard. They are haunting and themed like Japanese or Balinese, etc. Each theme has several octaves- soprano, bass, etc. I have the Japanese version and it feels like I am in feudal Japan whenever there is a breeze (or think Mushi Shi) if you know what that is. I hope it’s not inappropriate to say this since you were reviewing a different product- delete me if it is.

  3. I have a Davis Blanchard wind chime created by his son. It is the most harmonious wind chime I’ve ever heard. Bought it in 2015. Was going to get another, but found he, Davis Blanchard, retired in 2016. One company licensed to produce a selection of four of his masterpieces. Before I selected the one I own I listed to all they offered and narrowed it down to three or four. None of which are still available. Really well made, and beautifully resonent sound. The best of all still available on line, they, sadly, cannot compare to a Davis Blanchard wind chime.
