Concerto chimes do not have any wooden components. The 5 chimes and the windcatcher are of aluminium which has a UV-resistant powder coating to give a satin black finish.
The striker is of a black polymer that produces soft tones upon contact with the chimes.
Both ends of the chimes have been bevelled to produce shiny silver edges which contrast attractively with the black.
The cord from which each tube hangs is attached to a device seated within each tube rather than passing through a pair of holes drilled into the tube walls: this construction. combined with the 1.7 mm thickness of the metal. allows the metal to resonate for longer. It is also aesthetically pleasing.
The windcatcher is circular. curved to catch the breeze.
The chime has a robust ‘S’ hook. also finished in black. for ease of hanging.
