Wind Chime Design by Lee Hite -
In 2001 I took a month to study, experiment, build, and test nine sets of pentatonic scale (CDEGA) chimes for fundamental C2 through C7 for Christmas presents. The gifts were well received and sounded okay. However, from my research, I found some internet information good and some information inaccurate, misleading or wrong. This is not surprising considering the tremendous breadth of information available on the web. While I would not consider myself an expert by any definition, and the fact that I have absolutely no musical background, I consider my findings valuable for the understanding of tubular bells and useful if you desire to build a great set of wind chimes. My experience with this project is presented here and may help you in an effort to design a great set of wind chimes. - Christopher Allen
