Love it for my wooded lot!

6/26/2019 by Debra

We have 2 of these hanging from our front porch, and interchange the cardinal for: nothing, snowflakes, and (upcoming) fall leaves. It's a nice way to celebrate the cardinals that are always in our yard, as well as the changing seasons, without going overboard on tacky decor. The chimes are low and melodious, and are pleasant to hear.More > < Less

Take us to the water, please!

We love them! The sound reminds us of being on the water. I was concerned they would be too loud but so far there have been no complaints from our neighbors.More > < Less

We sorted through all of the bell "sounds" using the suggested app, and liked ours best. Now that it hangs in our patio, it sounds even better.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.
