Woodstock Temple Bells are inspired by ancient bells and work in harmony with the wind to create gentle, soothing tones. Bells have been used throughout the ages to accompany dance, provide comfort and warn of possible danger. The Chinese were the first to control the pitch or note of a bell, making it possible for them to play tunes. On New Year’s Eve the bells in Buddhist temples are rung 108 times, once for each of the worldly desires. In the East bells are very important and are often decorated with significant symbols. Tuned bells are suspended in homes and temples to ward off evil and attract good luck and prosperity. Hang these beautiful bells throughout your home and garden to enjoy the comfort they provide.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.
