ChimesChimes are an array of bells. Bar chimes use tubular bells with specific tunings. Energy chimes can contain one to several bars, often used in meditation. Hand-held chime bars come in various sizes for different pitches. The sound can be made light or very penetrating depending on how you strike them. They can fill a room with sound or be held in such a way as to direct the sound at a particular area. With a simple strike of the mallet a wondrous tone is released. The swirling resonation never seems to end. It is a calming way to begin meditation. The perfect signal for a teacher to begin class. That extra something you add to the end of the song. An elegant notice that dinner is served. There are many uses for this beautiful instrument. No musical training needed.
