The beautiful tinkling of bells or chimes the specific sound to hear during a gentle morning breeze or peaceful summer evening, and it brings an added perception of beauty and calm to almost any area. Spiritual History of Wind Chimes One of the crucial aspects of a wind chime is the unpredictability of the spontaneous melody. The sound of the bells in Ancient Rome was thought to ward off evil spirits, where craftsmen created beautifully constructed designs completely powered by the wind where the movement would make incredible sounds. Since nature was used to produce a desirable sound, the notion was a simple one, use nature to guard the homes. In Asia, a similar trend emerged at almost the same time as they did in Rome, about the first century C.E. The presence of chimes has been noted at early as 1100 B.C.E. in various areas of Asia. They are still essential today for religious ceremonies. Why Quality Matters When searching for that perfect wind chime to enhance your garden or meditation area, not just any chime will do as there are specific factors to look for. The highest quality chimes are tuned precisely to particular notes, and are professionally designed so that the clapper hits the chimes for the best resonance. Purchasing a substandard chime or attempting to make your own may lead to an unbearable racket and nothing that will be calming or comforting to hear. Chimes can be created of many different materials. Aluminum, bamboo and earthenware are definitely the more common materials chosen. A distinctive sound results with each and every material. Aluminum is the easiest material to correctly tune and is the least likely to chip or develop bad sound quality. You can find wind chimes which will make the sweetest tinkling of bells, the deep resonating sounds of gongs, and the melodic alto and tenor notes that blend perfectly with the wind.
