It looks great and well made. Great addition for outdoors, pleasant to hear the sounds it makes.

I made a set of tuned chimes a few years ago. It was trial and error to get the first one, measured the length, then I used a mathematical formula to calculate the lengths needed for the other notes. I used my son’s guitar tuner, (an electronic pitch identifier).

Tip: It is easier to do the math in the metric system.
