After seeing them in the countryside outside Austin, Texas where they are produced, we swooned, inquired about them, and eventually became proud owners, then distributors of these magnificant chimes.
Created by Larry Roark, a musician with a degree in music theory from the University of North Texas and on staff at the Texas Women's University (where our daughter earned her respective bachelors and masters degrees), the chimes fulfilled his goal of creating durable, precision tuned acoustic chimes, which he dubbed "the Stradivarius of windchimes."
The chimes are made in a range of pitches from soprano to bass in a variety of tonal scales. Our favorite is the pentatonic scale. After Larry was tragically killed in a car accident in 2001, his wife Sarah carried on the business to further his vision of "world peace, one backyard at a time."
We offer a 5% discount for orders greater than $500.
We are happy to provide a shipping quote, which is at cost. The larger chimes are made to order; if we do not have what you want in stock we can have it drop shipped directly to you. One of each size is usually in stock; orders can delivered to your door in about a week. The largest chimes are made to order and take longer. During Covid-19, material supplies have been difficult to get, and orders are taking longer to fulfill by the manufacturer, so plan ahead if the chime you are buying is a gift!
