Bamboo wind chimes are a natural and environmentally friendly way to relieve stress and achieve relaxation. Their beautiful and relaxing tone is soothing to the soul.
What is bamboo?
Bamboo is a tall grass that grows into wood-like stalks. It is very lightweight and durable. Bamboo is an abundant source of this remarkable cane; a single bamboo plant can grow several kilometers of cane. Bamboo cane is used for making so many things - including relaxing bamboo wind chimes.
Although some manufacturers use chemicals in their processing, bamboo does not need harsh chemicals to prepare the cane for making wind chimes. Bamboo stalks will dry naturally over time. It can however, take the younger, greener stalks several months to reach the right stage. Older, larger stalks are not as green; but may eventually split over time.
Splitting is natural
Splitting may happen to some degree in the many dried bamboo stalks. Splitting is natural for bamboo. The splitting may affect the sound of the wind chime, but only very little. Some people enjoy the sound of the split bamboo wind chimes, or a chime with a combination of whole tubes and split pieces. This chime not only sounds great, it looks great too. Before purchasing a bamboo wind chime, you may decide to experience both varieties before making your final decision.
Size of chime
The size of a bamboo wind chime depends on the number of tubes it holds, as well as the diameters of the bamboo tubes themselves. They can be dainty and small or up to a large wind chime made with bamboo that is 60-inches long.
Natural bamboo melody
Bamboo wind chimes produce tones that are unique and can't be duplicated. With their hollow, lingering sound, bamboo wind chimes are extremely soothing. The tones of a bamboo wind chime are deep and resonant. However, the shorter, narrower tubes lend a higher tone than the longer, wider tubes. All tube lengths give a warm and natural sound that will be enjoyed by all.
Whether you decide on bamboo wind chimes because of their natural environmental qualities, their soothing tone, or both reasons, you are sure to truly enjoy the peace and harmony a bamboo wind chime will bring to your home or outdoor area.
