Close your eyes and let the soothing song of the Shenandoah carry you away.
Shenandoah Melodies® chimes are inspired by the winding rivers and soothing woods of the place we call home. This collection features powder-coated tubes, a circular windsail, and a soft redwood striker—for classic beauty and enduring quality, at an affordable price. Now anyone can close their eyes, breathe deep, and let the song of the Shenandoah carry them away on a breeze.
Every Wind River chime uses heavy-duty, braided nylon cording that’s treated to be weather and UV resistant.
Centrally Pinned Tubes
Many wind chimes are strung together with cording that runs through holes drilled in each tube, creating a zig-zag pattern. This method can decrease the resonance of each tube and dampen the sound of the chime. At Wind River, the tubes in our Premier and Deluxe wind chimes are hung from a single string tied to a central, interior pin. Using centrally pinned tubes gives each chime crystal-clear resonance, volume and tone.
Aluminum Alloy Tubes
Aluminum makes our wind chimes lightweight and weather resistant. But when it comes to pitch and resonance, each alloy has its own unique characteristics. Through years of testing and engineering, we’ve identified the aluminum alloy that creates exceptional tone and sound quality—and we use it in every chime. Our Premier chimes also feature thick-walled tubes for even greater resonance.
To build a better wind chime, we tinkered until we got it right—and the striker was a smart place to start. A soft striker material gives each chime a gentle, soothing reverberation. But strikers must also be heavy enough to create a clean, crisp note upon impact. To create a soft striker with a lot of mass, we mold ultra-high-density polymer into a curved elliptical shape. It may be hidden, but it’s the detail that makes a Wind River chime truly sing.
