Great Garden Chimes

Updated on July 31, 2010

Most people love wind chimes and I am not exception. I have always wanted a set but for some reason never actually had any. I'd love to get a set now that we've got a garden but I haven't really noticed an area to hang them in, so I guess I'll have to live vicariously through you all until we get our own! So if you'd like a nice set of wind chimes have a look at these lovelies. There are different types and some of them are really amazing, like the first example you see below!

Amazing Grace Chimes

If you'd told me yesterday that a set of wind chimes could actually play the first 6 notes of Amazing Grace in a way that would actually allow the ear to pick the tune up, I would have laughed and told you that was nuts. I had no idea it was possible! These Amazing Grace wind chimes are absolutely stunning and they are a very popular gift for graves and other places of remembrance. Obviously you can just hang them in your garden, too. They come in 3 different sizes and the chimes are made from aluminum and and wooden bamboo.

Gregorian Alto Chimes

These are one of the most popular, if not the most popular, chimes being sold at and they've got a perfect review rating. Made from non-endangered wood, and digitally precision tuned, these gorgeous chimes play "medieval alto notes" like those you'd hear in Gregorian chants. You don't even need a windy area to hear them chime, just a little bit of air movement will produce a beautiful, mesmerizing tone.

Emperor Harp Machine

This is a neat little twist on the traditional wind chime. It's made from Ash wood and has 8 aluminum tubes. It measures 17.5 inches and weighs 0.3 lbs. Another popular model of wind chime on with great reviews, everyone seems to admire the design and reasonable pricing. And, of course, the sound is beautiful.

Pachelbel Canon Windchime

Another lovely tune for a wind chime! If you don't know Pachelbel's Canon by name, you surely know it by sound. If you need a hint, try the film Ordinary People. This would make a fantastic Christmas gift since every radio station plays that song extensively each holiday season. It's difficult to see but there are actually two pairs of chimes here -- there are the big silver colored chimes and then a smaller set of black chimes inside the bigger ring of chimes. The sounds will amaze you!
