Way to bad I couldn't sample these! I took my wife out to lunch and afterwards stopped at her favorite nursery for flowers (ugh). Anywho, there was a display with various size wind chimes made out of aluminum tubing. One in particular, although not the most expensive, had the warmest, deepest, clearest tones you have ever heard! At $199.99 it was way out of my budget but man what a awesome tone! Nope, nothing comes close! Man, I am tempted but have to save for a graduation party and two birthdays in June. Shighst, it's a curse to be a percussionist!
If I had the means I would sample and put them up for grabs on this forum! You've never heard such tonal graciousness! I'm going back tomorrow write down info and see if I can find on line or at least call the manufacture.
Just thought I would share.
