Wind chimes have a lot of different parts, which all work together to make beautiful sound when the wind is blowing. Here, we will explain everything about the different wind chime parts.
We would love to educate you, about the different parts of chimes and its terminology. The image on the page will make it easy for you to understand the different parts and names of the windchime.
O-Ring – O-Ring is a is metal material, from this O-ring the windchime is hanged.
Center String – Support string that runs from the top wood part called “Base” on the chime through the striker and down to the flap/windcatcher.
Center Unit – This part consists of the striker, flap/windcatcher & strings.
Striker – The striker will move around against the tubes/rods, which results in sounds being made.
Base – The base, at the top of the chime that acts as the support and separates the tubes and O-ring line.
Tubes – The “chime” of the windchime, these are the parts of the windchime that are struck by the striker to make sound. These are called “rods” or “tubes”.
Tube String – The “string” used to hold the parts of the chime. All Windsong Chimes are strung with Braided Polyester thread.
Windcatcher – Also called the flap, the part of the chime that is activated by the wind and sets the chime playing.
The actual functioning of windchime:
The striker moves thanks to the central string, that has a flap, on the end of the central string. The wind will move the striker around, which moves the central string around which will move the striker against the rods, resulting in sounds.
Windsong Chimes are all 100% Weather Protected & will withstand the continuous weather elements and will not rust when left outside all year in the garden.
