Very nice and sounds peaceful

4/8/2019 by Zach

I purchased one of the bells for my mother for Christmas. The exact order was a castine harbor Bell with a hummingbird wind catcher. I placed the order and within no time the item shipped, and I got it a week or so later. I am very happy with my purchase . My mother loves the Bell as much as I do. And to all of you asking if it is worth it to get one of the bells, I have one thing to say to you

On a beautiful Thursday afternoon the weather is just perfect In the 70's and breezy, the birds chirping and it's peaceful. Your Bell ringing gently from the breeze giving the sound of the one you pick dogs barking in the distance. That moment you realize you picked a nice place to live. You are gonna be thankful that you purchased the Bell, and the spot on sound they mimic. There it's no comparison, try it for yourself and see what you think.

Wonderful house warming gift

My cousin and her husband built a ‘green home’ and moved into it in the fall. It has been a busy time for them and then she had surgery! I had her look at Grommet and we chose together- the bell tone reminds her of early days with her family in Maine. It arrived in a very timely manner and cheered her up! I want one!More > < Less

About North Country Wind Bells

Sound Of The Sea

Jim Davidson was a lobsterman in Maine for years. Buoy bells chiming as he hauled in his lobster traps was a favorite sound—equal parts peaceful and melodic, and an indicator that he was safely close to harbor.

Jim was so enamored with the sound that he and his wife, May, began creating their own wind chimes to capture it. Their North Country Wind Bells are made at home in Maine and capture the tones of over 20 coastal and harbor bells.

Each location has a distinctive sound—from Bar Harbor to San Francisco—that Jim and May have carefully recreated. They started by recording as many local bells as they could. They then fine-tuned their own bells by ear until the sound was just right.

The bells and windcatchers are crafted from recycled steel by many of the locals in the Davidsons' small town, and should last for at least 20 years of coastal-inspired sound.
