It is such a pleasure listening to the bamboos make their unique sound. Just listen to the melody, close your eyes, & picture where this would fit perfectly in your environment.

These elegant chimes feature hand-tuned, hand-carved bamboo tubes that hang from a 7-inch diameter “hat” made from hand-woven palm leaf. The hat is a replica of those worn by farmers throughout Southeast Asia.
Each Asli Arts chime is hand-tuned by a trained Vietnamese artist-musician who whittles each tube to the perfect pitch, repeatedly tapping each bamboo tube as he carves until the sound is just right.
Every chime features the mellow, earth-inspired tones unique to resonating bamboo tubes. The musician then selects a range of tube sizes that when combined and touched by gentle breezes, creates a deep resonating sound.
Each Woodstock chime is unique in sound due to the hand-tuning and size selection with the large tubes producing lower tones and smaller tubes emitting higher-pitched sounds.
