    Quartal Alto, Heavy gauge polished stainless steel, Tempered aluminum alloy tubing, Solid polyethylene clappers , Edition Open, 127cm high , Music sculpture Heavy gauge polished stainless steel, Tempered aluminum alloy tubing, Solid polyethylene clappers , Edition Open, 127cm high Tough synthetic cordage is highly resistant to abrasion, ultra-violet degradation, rot and mildew. Central tube suspension with smoothly polished tube ends prevent cord abrasion typical of other, less labor-intensive suspension techniques. Heavy gauge polished stainless steel rings provide sturdy support and enduring beauty. Tempered aluminum alloy tubing is custom manufactured to our exacting specifications and will never rust. Our corrosion-protective finish preserves chime's appearance and increases durability in hostile environments (acid rain, salt air). Tubes are tuned to A440, standard orchestral pitch, using the latest in technology. Solid polyethylene clappers provide superior tonal quality and outdoor durability. The windcatcher, of the same finish and material as the tubes, is the ideal size, weight, and shape for optimal chime performance in 8 - 10 mph wind velocity. The windcatcher hook assembly provides simple but effective method of varying the chime's activity level. This meticulously hand crafted wind chime is precision-tuned to A440 (standard orchestral pitch). The elegant design features central tube suspension, with smoothly polished tube ends to prevent cord abrasion. The tempered aluminum alloy tubing is custom-manufactured to exacting specifications and will never rust. The tubing is coated with a sleek black corrosion-protective finish that provided durability in all kinds of outdoor environments. Quartal is a musical palindrome, the Quartal scale is based on intervals of fourths and fifths. Its smooth and serene sound captivated American composers, notably Aaron Copland and Paul Hindemith, in the early twentieth century.
