The Chimes of Mars is named for the mysterious "red planet". Named after the Roman god of war, Mars is the 4th planet from the sun.
It's nickname comes from the iron oxide that is so prevalent on its surface, which gives it a reddish appearance.
This chime is designed and handcrafted for superior musical performance. It is hand-tuned to a universal, pentatonic (five-note) scale and acts in concert with the wind to create random patterns of wonderful sound. Harmonizes beautifully with all the other Encore Collection chimes.
This chime carries a lifetime tuning guarantee.
This product is designed to hang from a string loop, rather than an O-ring.
This chime was designed with a removable windcatcher that can be taken to a trophy shop, printer or jeweller to be engraved or silk-screened.

Maintaining Your Woodstock Chime
Most Woodstock Chimes are designed for indoor or outdoor use. Chimes should be brought in during extreme weather or harsh winters. How much care your product requires depends on where you live and its amount of exposure to the elements. All musically tuned Woodstock Chimes with aluminum tubes come with a lifetime tuning guarantee. To maintain your chime, we recommend the following:
Aluminum Tubes, Plastic, Stone and Glass Parts
Woodstock Chimes tubes are made of aluminum that will not rust when exposed to the elements. However, over time, the aluminum may naturally pit or oxidize when placed outdoors, but the sound is not affected. The tubes and other noted parts may be cleaned with a damp cloth, mild soap and water.
We care about the environment and so use an eco-friendly water-based wood finish. This necessitates additional care for wood parts. Use a clean cloth or brush to periodically apply a thin coat of wood wax or exterior Danish, teak or lemon oil to the wood parts. Regular oiling will help protect the wood from drying and slow the natural aging process. We also suggest applying a thin coat of exterior varnish to the chime wood parts each spring.
After extensive testing, we recommend using Wood Butter on your chime's wood parts. This eco-friendly product is made in America and available online from The Bearded Chef (www.tbchef.com). Use promotion code WOODSTOCK20 to receive 20% off your first order!
Resin and Rust-Finish Elements
Resin and rust-finish steel elements should be wiped clean with a duster or damp cloth.
Copper and Brass Parts
Copper and brass parts can be cleaned with cleaner designed for copper and/or brass, or it can be left to naturally age and patina. Gongs and plated elements can be wiped with a duster or dry cloth.
