    Ugh people who put up wind chimes outside their apartment where all their neighbors have no choice but to hear them, drive me freaking crazy. Noise that is soothing and pretty to some people, is grating and disruptive to other people.

    That said, this is super cute and I want to hear what it sounds like!

      I can’t stand most wind chimes and my father-in-law loves them.

      That said, I was at a friend’s house and he had some chimes that were deeper with some sort of wooden or ceramic resonance and I absolutely loved them.

      They helped me understand what others like about them.

        I made some wind-chimes out of thick electric conduit one year for mothers day.

        Larger diameter and length made for deeper sound, and by simply wrapping a rubber band near one of the resonance points you can greatly reduce excess noise until you reach desired levels of reverb.

        I’d like to make a deeper set someday but I’d have to put it on some kind of timer so I can flip a switch, have it chime away for an hour, and then go quiet again.

        I like them, but in limited amounts. And I can’t stand high pitched ones.

          Sweet. I have dreamed of making a low freq set for a while. Maybe a retirement project idk. If I go too low that would probably be really obnoxious without sound deadening. Hate to have people’s dishes vibrating down the street lol

        I do like the deeper ones. I saw a set once where the largest was about 5 or 6 feet tall and 8-12" diameter.

      I feel you. My current next door neighbor has wind chimes out in their patio. Fortunately they’re the heavy kind so they don’t really make noise unless the wind is a bit strong.

    The Frog Clergy of The Chime. For the past one thousand years, The Clergy has kept the innards of each chime clean and oiled. Dutifully they rise each day and clean the gnats from the surrounding air. Like clockwork, they croak the midday prayer in unison with the chirpping chimes. Each one exactly a half-step above the frog to their right. Citizens from across the lands make pilgrimage just to hear the holy ribbits reverberate through the rungs.

    “Frog singing” is a very sweet way to refer to ribbits/croaks.

    Our first item is: Ribbit. All in favor?

    I’d just try to be a nice landlord and remove the wind catcher… or maybe the frogs like the chiming 🤷‍♂️
