Length Determines Sound - Did you know the length of the wind chime you choose has everything to do with how it will sound? A wind chime's length affects its sound dramatically. A long wind chime, one that measures 30 to 50 inches for example, will have a deep, resonating tone. However, a short wind chime, like one that measures 10 to 20 inches, will have a softer, higher pitched tone.
Measuring Your Chime - The size of wind chime you choose has just as much to do with sound as it does looks. To measure your wind chime, you should measure from the hanging hook, clear down to the end of the sail or clapper.
Hanging the Chime - When you're ready to hang your chime, you should use the "o" ring or hook that's already provided. Extending the chime by adding a chain or string will cause the wind chime to swing. Wind chimes should be hung so that only the center string and clapper move. You should also hang your windchime where it can receive wind from as many different directions as possible. Keep windchimes away from walls and railings and anything that may block a good breeze.
Once you've chosen your wind chime and hung it properly, there's nothing else to do but sit back and enjoy the music.
