Woodstock Chimes offer quality and great value
GTN Xtra Promotion

Woodstock Chimes UK’s best-selling Chimes of Pluto – Bronze is tuned to a lovely pentatonic scale and acts in concert with the wind to create random patterns of wonderful music.

  • Authentic and original musically tuned windchime
  • Premier quality, affordable & value priced
  • Created by GRAMMY® Award-winning musician Garry Kvistad
  • The choice of discerning UK customers for over 30 years
  • Shipping within 48 hours from our UK warehouse

As a music student in the 1970s, Garry’s curiosity about ancient worlds led him to learn about ancient music and musicians.

The musical scales he was studying could not be played on modern instruments, so he decided to build a metallophone (a xylophone-like instrument with metal bars) that could play the ancient scale of Olympos, a Greek flute player from the 7th century B.C.

Being an ecologically minded recent college graduate on a tight budget, Garry found the materials for his metallophone at a landfill—it was made from the aluminium tubes of a discarded lawn chair.

Garry’s metallophone experiment was so successful, he had the idea to cut and tune aluminium tubes to create windchimes, and Woodstock Chimes was born!

In addition to his work at Woodstock Chimes, Garry is a professional musician. Pictured right: Garry with his adapted lawn chair.

He has been performing and recording with the ensemble Steve Reich and Musicians since 1980 and is one of the 18 musicians to win a GRAMMY® Award for the 1998 recording of Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians.

In 2002 Garry joined NEXUS, the internationally renowned chamber music ensemble based in Canada. Called “the high priests of the percussion world” by the New York Times, NEXUS is considered to be one of the premier percussion ensembles in the world today.
