Consists of 8 notes: Câ€™ to Câ€. The Diatonic Set allows more songs to be played and has been preferred over the pentatonic scale by most music educators and people more familiar with music. Our most popular set.
The three rods of this chime produce pleasant tones that sound wonderful in any combination. Can be used as a personal instrument for improvisation and meditation. Tapped gently with the rubber-tipped mallet, this three-tone chime emits a soothing "voice" that relaxes and reenergizes. Useful for meditation and healing rituals, the chime can be struck in front of the body, then moved from one side of the head to the other for a surround-sound experience. Three polished aluminum rods of different lengths are fastened to a smooth, cherry-finished hardwood base that measures approximately 8 by 3 inches, small enough to keep on a desk or by the bed. Musician Gary Kvistad founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979, and today the family-owned company produces a wide range of handcrafted, precision-tuned chimes. A one-year warranty covers the chime against defects, and all tuned Woodstock Chimes come with a lifetime tuning guarantee. --Ann Bieri
Tibetan monks use small cymbals called tingsha, which are sounded to mark the beginning and end of a period of meditation. You can use your Zenergy Meditation Chime in much the same way. The two rods are purposely tuned to nearly â€“but not quite â€“the same pitch. When both are struck at the same time, an acoustical phenomenon known as â€œbeatingâ€ is produced. The rods will seem to ring with the same pitch, but you will notice a distinct pulsation or rhythm â€“ in this case, approximately 12 beats per second. The following listening exercises can help heighten your sensory awareness and focus your attention at the beginning of a period of meditation: â€¢ Strike and dampen each rod separately. Can you tell which one is higher and which is lower? â€¢ Strike both rods together and let them ring. Can you hear the pulse created by the â€œbeating?â€ â€¢ Notice how the sound emitted seems to change as you slowly move the instrument from directly in front of you to one side of your head and then to the other. Move the chime over and behind your head as well. â€¢ As you listen to the beating, try breathing in for so many beats and then breathing out for twice as long. â€¢ Strike both rods again and focus on the sound as it gradually fades into silence. Pay attention to the changes in the rhythms you hear. You can also create your own personal rhythms by striking the wooden cradle. 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 canâ€™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 ...
