Wonderful sound

by

I first saw these over 30 years ago when visiting Bar Harbor. The sound is deep. I now have 3 different bells, my favorite is the Booth Bay which is a medium size one that will work with the slightest breeze. I am not sure what my neighbors think but I love it when the wind blows.More > < Less

Chesapeake Bell rings true!

by

My wife and I bought the Chesapeake bell as a gift for her brother and sister-in-law. They live within 40 miles of Chesapeake Bay. Their response was very favorable which was nice to hear from a couple who have everything.More > < Less

perfect gift.

I gave the North Country Bell to my in-laws for a early Christmas gift. They live on the Chesapeake Bay and can remember the sound of the buoy bells from back in the day. They love the bell and the nostalgia/memories that the ringtone brings.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.
