The first ever musically tuned windchime

Woodstock Chimes founder and owner, Garry Kvistad, created the first windchime tuned to specific musical notes. In the 1970s he was fascinated by the scale of Olympos, a musical scale from the 7th century B.C., that couldn’t be played on modern instruments. Inspiration struck when he realised he could cut and tune aluminium tubes to the exact frequencies of that ancient scale, and just like that the first musically tuned windchime was born! Garry continues to be the talent behind the design and tuning of all Woodstock Chimes.

The Amazing Grace Chime – Medium, tuned to the opening notes of the popular hymn.

In the beginning, Woodstock Chimes were tuned to scales from various world cultures, such as the Chimes of Kyoto™, which are tuned to an ancient Japanese scale. From there Garry added chimes that paid homage to beloved composers such as Mozart and Pachelbel, and introduced more modern tunings, such as the Amazing Grace Chime™ (above), tuned to the opening notes of that popular hymn.

GRAMMY® Award Winner at the Helm

In addition to his work at Woodstock Chimes, Garry is a professional musician. He has been performing and recording with the ensemble Steve Reich and Musicians since 1979 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.


Nearly 40 Years of Chimes

A family-owned business, Woodstock Chimes has been making beautiful music for nearly 40 years. During this time, our product line has expanded many times over. We have the widest variety of price points, tunings and designs in the industry. Many of our chimes now include removable windcatchers that can be personalised to commemorate life events, making the gift of a Woodstock Chime even more special.

Garry is passionate about music, which is why the music made by our windchimes, bells and gongs is unparalleled in the industry.


Hearing a Woodstock Chime is like listening to a

perfectly tuned musical instrument, played by the wind.
