At Wind River, musicality is no small matter. From the beginning, we?ve studied and perfected what we call ?the Science of Sound??carefully engineering each component to create the most melodic chimes on the market. Before a chime is assembled, we test the tone, resonance and pitch of each tube to make sure they match the intended harmony. It?s the kind of attention to detail you can see?and hear.
Aluminum Alloy Tubes
Aluminum makes our wind chimes lightweight and weather resistant. But when it comes to pitch and resonance, each alloy has its own unique characteristics. Through years of testing and engineering, we?ve identified the aluminum alloy that creates exceptional tone and sound quality?and we use it in every chime. Our Premier chimes also feature thick-walled tubes for even greater resonance.
Centrally Pinned Tubes
Many wind chimes are strung together with cording that runs through holes drilled in each tube, creating a zig-zag pattern. This method can decrease the resonance of each tube and dampen the sound of the chime. At Wind River, the tubes in our Premier and Deluxe wind chimes are hung from a single string tied to a central, interior pin. Using centrally pinned tubes gives each chime crystal-clear resonance, volume and tone.
Redwood Strikers & Accents
As we designed and engineered our chimes, American-grown redwood was a natural choice. In addition to its exceptional beauty, redwood is sustainable, rot-resistant and its soft texture creates a mellow sound as it strikes each chime.
An Inspired Palette
Our color palette is inspired by the woods, waterways and mountaintops that surround our Virginia home. No matter what shade you choose or where you place your chime, our soothing colors and finishes helps it blend in and stand out, all at the same time.
