cross pictureWorking on THIS new design to add to engraved wind chimes. Created in-house, the decorative cross makes a nice add-on for a sympathy or memorial gift chime engraving. Or even for clery/pastor appreciation day (the second Sunday in October). The Corinthian Bells engraved wind sail is shown here in Patina Green with John 3:16 as the additional text, but you can add anything you’d like! Depending on the size of the wind sail, the character limit is 50, 100 or 150 characters. Give us a call if you’d like text suggestions or a design proof before we engrave – 877-293-6395.

Church Bell Chimes – Hand-Tuned and Made in the U.S.

Carolyn | Monday, September 23, 2013 in Gift info | Comments (0)

Customers often look for wind chimes that sound like church bells or chapel bells – a pipe organ sound that’s deep and rich.

Two types of chimes produce that type of sound: the tallest chimes with the skinniest tubes (or smallest tube diameter, to be specific) and shorter chimes with the largest tube diameter. An example are two chimes within the Corinthian Bells chimes: the 74-inch chime (the CB446) and the 65-inch chime (the CB836).

Here’s the CB446: CB446_B1_sm. The 74-inch chime has the song of church bells that go off at noon every day. If you’re close to a church at that time, the familiar tunes of a gospel song or hymn ring out in melodic, deep tones. The longest tube on this chime is 54 inches, with 1.25 inch diameter tubes. Its depth and sound is definitely created by the long, skinny tubes. It is hand-tuned to the major key of C, a very popular tuning.

Here’s the CB836: CB836_B1_sm. The 65-inch chime has more of a resounding gong sound. It’s longest tube is 40 inches and the tube diameter is 2 1/4 inches. This shorter, but much bigger, chime rings out in occasional, bass tones. It is definitely not a clanging, metallic sound – just a peaceful, beautiful, deep, rich melody in the major key of D#.
Both are unique from each other, and lovely in their own way!

Personalize Your Wind Chimes with Engraving

Carolyn | Friday, September 6, 2013 in Chime info, Gift info | Comments (0)

So you’re looking at all the wind chimes online and you’re thinking…
How will I ever choose the perfect chime for my wife (or friend, husband, mom, co-worker)?! With so many great U.S.-made wind chimes available (pstt – they really are the best you know!), one of the best ways to select that perfect chime is simply to find a wind chime that you love and have it personalized and engraved just for them.

If you’re not sure what to say, just email or call us. We’ve seen many wonderful messages and would be happy to suggest one for you to consider. We’ve even seen cryptic text messages – just a series of letters – think LOL, but more cryptic. What a fun, inside-joke, personal gift!

Laser engraving is available on all chimes that we sell. It is done on the wind sail (the wooden or metal piece that catches the wind at the bottom of the chime.) Although it takes an extra 1-2 days for engraving, it is absolutely worth that extra time for such a special, personal gift. But if you’re curious about when the engraved chime will ship, by all means, call or email us. We can quickly give you an estimate of shipping and delivery time.

Any other questions on engraving? We’re here to help!
