The 5 Best Wind Chimes – 2019
First used in ancient Rome and the far East thousands of years ago, wind chimes make an excellent addition to any garden or meditation area.
They come in various shapes and can emit different tones depending on the materials used.
You should find a place to hang your wind chime where the wind blows consistently. If you live in a windy area it's best to partly shelter the chime from the worst of the weather.
Our favourite wind chime in 2017 is still the Woodstock Amazing Grace Chime. This is a good-sized, decent quality wind chime, that plays the melody "Amazing Grace" when the wind catches it.
On this page we’ll look at the most popular wind chimes you can currently buy. The prices vary but they are mostly cheap to grab hold of.
The Best Wind Chimes In 2019 - Comparison
#1 - Woodstock "Amazing Grace" - The Best Wind Chimes
The Woodstock Amazing Grace Chime is a traditonally-styled, metal wind chime.
This chime is tuned to play the opening bars of "Amazing Grace" when the wind blows.
It has 6 hollow aluminum tubes, so you don't have to worry about rust (aluminum cannot rust). The tubes are suspended from a bamboo top. The wind catcher is also bamboo. The strings are weather-resistant braided nylon.
You can customise the wind catcher with your own design or engraving if you wish (though the manufacturer doesn't offer this service - you would need to organise this yourself).
The total length is 24 inches, and weight is 1.4lb. There are also 15 inch and 40 inch versions available.
The chimes are fully assembled in the packaging - all you need is to find or install a convenient hook to hang them from.
This wind instrument has been precision tuned to make a wonderful sound when the wind blows - listen to the video below for a sample.
This is usually slightly more expensive than the cheapest wind chimes, but in our opinion, worth the extra few dollars, considering the size and quality.
Woodstock has been around for over 30 years, and is still run by the Grammy award-winning musician and instrument designer who founded the company. While the chimes are manufactured in China these days, the company is still American-owned and operated; They design all their chimes in the USA.
This model comes with a 12 month warranty from the manufacturer. Woodstock also guarantees the tuning for life!
