Must be heard! Special acoustic effect makes Madame Butterfly soar!

Our Magical Mystery Chimes feature a musical phenomenon known as octave doubling. Here's how it works - you remember the Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Do scale from The Sound of Music? The "Do" notes that come at the start and end of this scale are the same note, an octave apart. Notes separated by an octave are considered harmonically equivalent and "ring" together in a way that adds a pleasing sound to the music. Our Magical Mystery Chimes take this theory to the extreme - each note of the chime is matched with its "octave double." Never before used in windchimes, this special tuning heightens the harmonics, creating a song that must be heard to be believed.

Our Butterfly's Farewell Chime mirrors the strikingly beautiful pentatonic melody at the climactic finale of Puccini's popular opera, Madame Butterfly. When all is lost, the leading soprano uses a full range of human emotion to express her intense passion to restore her honour as the music builds in this tragic love story.

This chime showcases a unique and beautiful sounding feature called "octave doubling." Each note is duplicated one octave higher than the main scale. This expands the range of the chime while adding harmonic content and beauty to the sound.

This chime carries a lifetime tuning guarantee.

This chime was designed with a removable windcatcher that can be taken to a trophy shop, printer or jeweller to be engraved or silk-screened.

    I visited this store for the first time today and was amazed by the selection of bird, bat and butterfly houses and feeders. I only went in to get some poles for feeders I already have but I will be back. They also have a wide selection of home and garden gifts.
