Bamboo or metal? What is the difference?

A wind chime can create an extraordinary range of moods and emotions, from calm and contemplative to playful and inspiring. But as ethereal as its sound may be, the specific effect of a wind chime depends on some very down-to-earth design considerations. Our guide to materials, tones and types will help you find the best wind chimes for your outdoor or indoor space.

Types of Wind Chimes:

High-quality wind chimes can be a beautiful addition to your home and garden. In addition to more popular tube designs, our selection includes many different types of wind chimes for indoor and outdoor use.

  • Tube Chimes: These wind chimes feature vertical tubes, usually made of aluminum or bamboo. Because each tube is a different length, these rods create a series of tones for a unique melody.

The bamboo gives a more natural, short sound, is mainly used outdoors.

Materials for wind chimes

It should come as no surprise that the material has a big impact on the sound of individual wind chimes. Depending on the mood you want to create or the look you're going for, you'll probably find that you prefer one material over another. The biggest advantage of metal wind chimes is that they can be tuned to specific tones, allowing the manufacturer to recreate classical melodies or imitate the sounds of cathedral or clock tower bells. The exceptional durability of metal is also ideal for wind chimes that are exposed to the elements. The most commonly used metals include: - Aluminum: By far the most popular material due to the clarity, volume and duration of its bells, as well as its excellent durability and weather resistance.Bamboo wind chimes.Although less durable than metal, bamboo wind chimes emit a soft, fountain-like clacking sound that makes a nice accompaniment to water features and Zen gardens. Koshi chimes are a unique and different take on the traditional wind chime. Each bar is welded to a metal plate, and a beater provides beautifully clear, rich and resonant tones that are amplified via the bamboo veneer resonance chamber.An interesting focal point for your home, garden or resting area. Handmade with meticulous care at the foot of the Pyrenees in France.
