If you are new to windchimes the number of wind chime options can be overwhelming. Purchasing a precut set takes out the guesswork how to cut the windchimes yourself. This listing is for 1in Diameter tubes. If you want a different diameter tube or if you want to purchase individual tubes to make your own set then please visit our listings for those. There are many options that you choose from that are explaine here:

Type: There are many different commonly used configurations such as the Pentatonic Sclale, Westmister, Caterbury, etc.. Each of these have there own unquie style and sound. You can listed to our sound clips on each one but note that computer speakers can not reproduce the quality or range of tones that these will produce in real life. After choosing a Type you must choose to have them Deburred and/or have Suspension Holes drilled.

Suspension Holes: Our supension holes are drilled at 22.4% for optimum sound quality. You have a drill and are handy you can do this yourself or have us do it for you. Some people chose to have a mounting or suspension point different than 22.4%. If so you should not choose this option so you can drill your own hole.

Deburr: The deburr option removes all of the burrs from the manufacuturing process found in the Suspension Holes and on the ends of the tubes. If you are going to finish your own tubes to your own style you may not want the tubes to be deburred.

Powder Coated: This option produces a abrasion / weather resistant coating of the color of your choice. Do not ask use to match a color ot a certain shade of your desire as we will not be able to do it. It's not possible to mix our pigments to a specific shade of color.

Tuned: By default we cut our tubes to 440Hz as close as the manufacturing process can do. But it may be a little more or a little less. For most people this work just fine. To get it to an exact Hz we must test/adjust again and again until the final tuning is achieved. This is a time consuming process and is all done by hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Products specifications
Aluminum Type 6063 This aluminum alloy has high tensile properties, excellent finishing characteristics and a high degree of resistance to corrosion. It us used in a wide variety of interior and exterior applications, such as windows, doors, store fronts and assorted trim items. It can be sawed, riveted, bent, anodized, painted, sanded, and many more. It is a close relative to aluminum alloy 6061 but usually has a higher quality surface finish.
Cutting Warning The use of circular saws can cause this material to jam and fly out violently. Most circular saws go too fast which cause the particles to become extremely hot and they fly much faster than wood that can create eye injuries.
Custom Lengths or Different Sizes We can cut to length or cut different sizes for a cutting charge. For any profile less than 6in AND less than 1.5in height there is a $6 charge to cut the first piece, and $2 for each additional piece. For any profile wider than 6in OR higher then 1.5in there is a $25 cutting fee for the first piece and $5 for each additional pieces. Contact service@uaac.us for specific answers to your cutting questions. Also check out our 'Fabrication Wizard' service for cutting and fabrication of all kinds of profiles.
Visual Requirements These may have discolorations or splotches or scratches from time to time. This often looks white. This is rare, but if your application requires a good visual appearance please let us know in the notes section of your order so we may double check our stock and make sure you receive our best appearing pieces.
Packaging This item is wrapped in 1.5 mill polypropylene plastic for shipping unless the Protective Packaging Option is purchased instead.
Protective Packaging Option This option protects your items from shipping damage using reinforced packaging and insurance. The cost of using this option is $11.99 per order. It’s available at the time of check out as a drop down selection box. We must charge this much to cover our costs because the weight of the reinforcement raises the weight of the order enough that we are required to use the more expensive Priority or Parcel rates. Which items/situations need this? Items that are 48in or longer in purchase quantities of 3 or less AND have any dimension in the cross section area of 1in or less.
American Made UAAC angles and flats are sourced and manufactured in the USA including all the raw materials that go into them. They are made in the states of NC and FL. Despite the lower price the quality is very consistent and high and we always strive to do better.
