Our Dharma Cowbell emits a rich, authentic tone due to a special acoustic coupling, the result of the tuning slots that combine the bell’s vibration with the bell’s resonant chamber. In Sanskrit, Dharma can mean many things including truth and protection. Buddhists study Dharma in order to achieve inner peace and happiness. Bells are used by many cultures for protection from evil spirits and to signal events. Cowbells are found throughout the world in many shapes and sizes, serving to protect cattle by letting their owners know where they are grazing. We hope our unique design brings a little happiness, peace, truth and protection to your environment.Over 30 years ago, Grammy award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979 and still develop the chimes today. It remains a family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley.
