The Contrabass Chimes are some of the largest and most unique instruments in the Freenotes collection. They are made up of seven anodized aluminum tubes, 4 inches in diameter and ranging from seven to nine feet tall. Stunning in both their towering appearance and low resonant tones, the Contrabass Chimes provide an outdoor music experience through powerful sounds that are both heard and felt.
The taller the chime, the deeper the tone it emits. Each chime is pitched one octave below middle C to create a deep note that sustains long after the fundamental sound has ceased.
We find these instruments are best as an ensemble installed in a horseshoe shape to allow a surround-sound effect. Perfect in healing gardens, or as a sound sculpture.
Contrabass Chimes are also sold individually. Each instrument is supplied with two durable mallets attached with coated steel cables. Just like all Freenotes Harmony Park instruments, the Contrabass Chimes and mallets are designed to withstand the outdoor elements. Inside The box: 7 aluminum Chimes, 2 mallet poles, 4 mallets. Select either In-Ground -or- Surface mount install method in the drop down menu, above.
