They have a very pleasing sound with the deeper tones. I like it. Great job

Very nice. I was hoping for a “how-to” video, but 14 minutes of the chimes chiming was nice too. :)

Really nice chimes – I suspect that it is going to take near hurricane force winds to move them though. Wonder if lighter walled conduit would be better? Just thinking out loud.

I am in the process of making a 2” EMT steel conduit wind chime.. I should post it this weekend. On the c4 octave at a pentatonic scale of C D E G A (the sound of the old grandfather clocks, or church bells)

My brother lives in Texas (outskirts of Austin) and my sis-in-law bought a set of wind chimes that are about 6” in diameter and over 6’ tall. Hung them on his property and they sound BEAUTIFUL. Deep, full, bass sounding chimes.

One weekend it was particularly windy and when he woke up the next morning he realized he couldn’t hear the chimes. Rushing outside he found the “clapper” had been removed, and wrapped and tied in a pillowcase that was taken from his clothesline.

Later that day he was hosting a BBQ for a few neighbors. All the neighbors were commenting on how beautiful the chimes sounded, but NONE of them would admit to taking the clapper down the night before. :-)

My brother “got the message” and only hangs the clapper on days when he’s working in the yard and never overnight.
