Wind Chimes and Windhangers

They are most often made from hollow or solid metal or wooden tubes, are usually hung in the garden outside your home or inside an open window, and are played by the wind.

The wind moves them and causes the chimes to strike against each other or against metal, wood, or rubber balls which are mostly hung in the centre. The inherent, natural acoustics entertain and relax you from the strength and movement of the wind.

Bamboo Wind Chimes for Outdoors in the Garden

When you start thinking about it, to get a specific sound or tone would involve quite a lot of thought!

Bamboo Wind Chimes and Windhangers

Using bamboo as a material to make wind chimes would enable you to employ the tube and lengths to develop it to strike a particular note.... with a lot of trial, error and adjustment!

I have a bamboo windhanger made from very long pieces of bamboo that are about 2 inches wide.

The bamboo pieces gently knock against a circular flat piece of stone to make the noise when the wind is strong enough to move the hanger..

The resulting tone is very deep and relaxing. And of course, being larger and heavier it takes a slightly stronger breeze to move it.

Bamboo Chimes as Gifts

In Chinese tradition, the chime symbolizes peace, harmony and prosperity. Presenting one as a gift to a special person is to wish them happiness and good health.

I gave a large bamboo wind chime to my boss, she was really pleased and put it in her garden near to her bamboo fountain. It's not always easy to choose gifts but that one was really well received.

Other types of unique bamboo gifts

There are different styles of bamboo wind chimes and windhangers available; some are beautifully hand crafted and totally unique. Many of the wind chimes from Indonesia, particularly Bali, are hand painted with beautiful designs. They have been made in that region for hundreds of years and the craft has been passed down through generations.

Bamboo Wind Chimes Sound and Tone

The tone of a wind chime is not only dependent on the material it is made from but also on the material the chimes knock against.

Any material will make a different sound when knocked against something else. Some examples being; glass, stones, wood, metal, pieces of plastic or metal pipe... from there the resulting tone would also depend on the type and weight of the wood or metal and the nature of the object hitting against it.
