If you’ve been to London, one of the major attractions to visit is the iconic “Big Ben”’. It is the nickname given to the Great Bell of the clock tower situated at the north end of the Palace of Westminster. Built in 1859, the tower is one of the most prominent symbols in London. Previously known simply as the Clock Tower, it was renamed in 2012 to the Elizabeth Tower in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee. It is this familiar sound known around the world that the Music of the Spheres’ Westminster wind chime recreates.
Each Westminster Wind Chime is Hand-Tuned to Perfection
Reminisce in the familiar tones of London’s iconic “Big Ben” once again with this chime that brings together the rich harmonics of cathedral bells in a handcrafted and finely-tuned wind chime. Not some cheap wind chime that goes “tink-tink”, these tubes are musically hand-tuned to A440, a standard orchestral pitch. The 4 tubes mimics the tones of London’s Big Ben and is sure to gain the praise of anyone listening to it.
Designed to Last
These wind chimes are designed to bring enjoyment for years to come. The quality materials used in the construction of this unique wind chime make it suitable as an outdoor wind chime on a rainy, snowy or sunny day.
Finished in matte black, each handmade tube is made of tempered aluminum alloy to resist rust and corrosion. The ring holding the entire assembly together is made of stainless steel. The solid UV stabilized polyethylene clapper holds up well to all the weather elements and delivers superior tonal quality.
While it is suitable for use in all weather conditions, protect the wind-chime from severe inclement weather by taking some precautions whenever possible. Before a huge storm arrives at your doorstep, the detachable tempered aluminum alloy wind catcher gives you the option of “turning down” the wind chime easily without having to go through the trouble of taking the whole wind chime down. The polyethylene clapper can also be raised above the tubes so as to silence it further.
If you’ve ever had to deal with wind chimes that fall apart after a few years because of the threads breaking, this wind chime is worry-free. It uses UV stabilized synthetic thread that creates a long-lasting wind chime setup you can enjoy for many years.
