    • Capricorn wind chime match: Corinthian Bells 74” – even though this is one of our longest chimes, the diameter of the tubes matches those of our medium sized chimes, so the tonal quality is unique to the rest of our chimes but already familiar to your ears, resembling the charming, comforting sound of local church bells.
