Default Good sounding wind chimes

Does anyone know some good brands of wind chimes? I tried an inexpensive type where the tubes was made out of aluminium. It didn't sound any good.

I used to own some cheaper LP chimes and they sounded great.................got rid of them awhile back, but Andy's recent chime postings have me longing for some again.

Treeworks has a 35 bar chime that's pretty spectacular.

+1. The only one I've owned, and I'll probably never get another.

I think Treeworks is the only game in town. Nobody else wants that job ;)

Sabian, Meinl, Rhythm Tech, Schalloch, Gon Bops, and Nino all make bar chimes also. Sabian makes them out of bronze as well as aluminum.

Wow, I influenced something = very cool :)

I have a set of Meinl studio chimes. The studio chimes are brighter & lighter than most, & I find they cut through well in amplified music without being "clangy". The only thing that really pisses me off about them - they don't come with a case. That's really annoying. What the hell are you meant to do with them at the end of a gig?

Treeworks chimes have a "nice" case you can buy for them. Or, you can use the cardboard mailing tube that they come in. I'm holding out for SKB to come out with a roto-x windchime case that stacks with my drum set cases...

Hmmm, maybe I need another set of chimes WITH A CASE! I'm still using the cardboard box they supplied, & it's just about falling apart. Plus, I trod on them in the box & split the wood. No biggie, but still annoying :(

A friend of mine, who had rather long wind chimes, was going to his local gun store and buying rifle cases to store his chimes in. I believe the gun bag manufacturers make different lengths of gun bags for different models, and you can probably find one that will fit your set of wind chimes.

A much cheaper alternative since there are much more gun stores and owners than there are windchime owners.

Oh that's right. My apologies. We have gun stores all over the place here ;)
How 'bout a ukulele bag?

I've owned a number of wind chimes over the years. The best I've used are the Spectrasound. They are also one of the more expensive brands.
