1. False: Birds and many other forms of wildlife enjoy listening to the soothing tones made by tuned chimes.

2. False: Many people in the Orient use wind chimes as part of their unique home décor, whether strictly for feng shui purposes or simply decorative art.

3. False: They were hung over the door way to keep out wicked spirits, and to ward off evil omens.

4. False: Precision tuned chimes are exactly what they say. Offering a soothing, relaxing medley of notes instead of the sometimes irritating bang and clang of ordinary kinds of chimes.

5. True: Smaller diameter pipes produce a higher tone than pipes longer and/or larger in diameter.

6. False: High grade aluminum produces a better sound in wind chimes; some aluminum pipes are treated to look like copper. But this is for decorative purposes only.

7. True: Some tones do have a healing effect; calming our minds, relieving stress, awakening our spirits, and improving our concentration level.

8. False: Many times you can purchase wind chimes online, where ease of shopping and selection is better. Some of the best buys for quality, precision tuned chimes can also be found online.

9. True: They are symbolic of harmony and peace.

10. False: The Bible does not address the matter, and there is no reason to avoid their use. Chimes are a lovely enhancement of nature, and their “song” a celebration of the creation that surrounds us.

11. True: The “anti-nodes,” or points of contact that vibrate the most to produce the sweetest sounds, are located in the middle and at both ends of the pipe.

12. False: Chime pipes sound best (in my opinion) when tuned to the pentatonic scale, the same scale used to tune a piano’s black keys. Feng shui has to do with harmony and balance.
