Some weeks ago, I contacted your company for replacement parts for some chimes that were given to me by my wife for my 50th Bday. Left an email on Sunday describing my dilemma. Was contacted first thing Monday by Laurie via email and had the parts by that following Wednesday!!!! I was stunned at what an awesome experience this was for me compared to other instances when dealing with other customer DIS-service departments. We have many of your chimes all over our property. We love them and now with this experience...the love is even bigger now! THANKS AGAIN!!!
Rick Cratty, Santa Rosa CA

We are very fond of this chime set as it has been with before and through Hurricane Katrina, whereupon it sat submerged in floodwater for more than three weeks here in Lakeview, New Orleans, only ten blocks from one of the primary levee breaks. This chime set was rescued and salvaged from our home and continued to function at our then three-year alternative residence while our primary garden paradise was restored. I wish I had a nickel for each time the wooden striker touched upon one of the chime tubes. Note the character scars on the wooden striker. If only it could speak...

Only yesterday did one of the tubes finally succumb to age and element. And like a palm leaf that gave its grace, flutter and shelter for so long did it finally find its way to the groundl tired but still inspired.

Please restore this set to its former beauty, grace and soothsay and return ship to the letterhead address above. We will be anticipating its return to our beloved garden yard with improved glory since Katrina took three years from it and our lives.

Yours very truly,
Richard and Susan

"My first purchase was a small windchime. I was 'blown away' with the quality, and immediately purchased the mucho grande Himalayan chimes. Woo Hoo..........My neighbors hang out and bow politely. During inclement weather, hang your GNC's inside near a low speed rotating fan. Live and love in style and GRACE. Ahh Grasshopper..............."

"I am a wind chime collector! I love the sound of wind chimes especially in the morning! I saw chimes similar to these on long beach island new jersey and they were $200.00 for the small version. As much as I loved them it was too much money! Then I came across yours!!!! They are sooooo wonderful to hear!!! The quality is phenomenal!!! I have told sooo many of my friends where to get them because they love the sound of mine sooo much!!!! Thank you for lifting my day every morning........."
Dee

Being able to hear the sound of each chime is a great marketing tool for sales on the net. I have looked and researched many brands of windchimes and have found your chimes to be one of the best made and the sound to be second to none. Definitely a quality product. Thanks."

As a musician, I am amazed to find chimes tuned to various scales and their tone is unlike any other windchime. Our first one 10 years ago was for our August anniversary with an engraving on the back about family harmony. We have moved twice since then and the two Grace Notes go up first. The E minor 7/11 by our bedroom and the lower G major 6/9 outside the living room. My 76 year old father is receiving a baritone Grace Note for Christmas because that's where the majority of his hearing remains. He can set in his chair looking out over the garden and listen to beautiful music."

"I want to send everyone a word of caution about Grace Note wind chimes. Don't buy one- buy two, buy three, get five like me !
I started out with two chimes and reluctantly bought the Super Chime, thinking it would overpower the others. This is simply not the case. These chimes are simply amazing- it's like listening to a glorious concert and each song is never the same.
Let me explain. As Mother Nature directs her beautiful breezes, some chimes will sing together, then some will step back and let one sing a solo. Then others will step up and accompany. Sometimes the Super Chime will add a fortissimo downbeat. Other times all will sing together. The variations just go on and on & I have never heard a bad song.
The sound of Grace Notes are so mesmerizing. The sound is so beautiful, at times it makes me almost cry with joy. This is not an easy thing for a man to say, but it is certainly no exaggeration either.
Yes, Grace Notes are pricey, but please don't buy those cheap, clanky, non- musical chimes like I've done for years. I don't regret one penny I've spent on these chimes. The sound and sheer enjoyment is simply worth the money. Words cannot explain the musicality of these chimes- you simply must have one or two of them, or five like me- and the wind is free!
As a final note, place a Petite Himalayan Echo right next to your bedroom window. You will notice amazing results with your body and spirit."
John C. Irvine, Yakima WA

"There was a write-up in the WSJ a month ago about wind chimes, but I don't believe they mentioned your company. However, that very same day, I was in my local nursery, and saw wind chimes, and I thought 'how cosmic'.
I saw your 7/11 Earthsong, and struck them, they have a clear tone. They were not bongey or clanky like some I've heard. I also notice they seemed to be machined to a higher degree than the others I have seen, plus they were a single piece 'casting' which I thought has to show some one is really on the ball when it comes to sound creation."
I love them.
Steven - Austin, TX

"Dear Everyone at Gracenotes
The chimes arrived Monday. I happened to be here at the time of delivery and I deployed the new chimes immediately. I'm now enjoying the delightful sound of these wonderful new chimes along with that of the chimes I bought last year, which still seem to be in great shape and have been doing an excellent job of conditioning the noisy city environment. It was a pleasure once again to purchase chimes from your company. "
Thanks so very much,

"I purchased a set of your beautiful windchimes while visiting home in San Francisco this summer as a house warming gift to myself and our family. I can not tell you how beautiful they sound. We live on a hill, with the sea to the front of us and the mountains behind in the Garden of Ireland, Wicklow, and the sound of beauty your chimes conjure is truly healing. They harmonize completely tranquil surroundings and also remind me of home! Thank you very much for your time and talent - they are most beloved."

"What beautiful chimes our instructor sent (Aherns Massage); what a lovely gift. I couldn't think of anything better........I applaud your work and quality! What joy you have designed...God's blessings to you and your family; may you continue to prosper in making these chimes ; such calmness and spirituality.
Here from the state of Vermont; we thank you. I will be placing them to the side of my massage parlor for all to enjoy. Namiste..."

"The first time I saw your chimes, in Bishop, California, at an arts & crafts fair, a little over 10 years ago, I immediately fell in LOVE with the haunting, mysterious, pleasing sounds. Never have I heard anything like it. The noises of other chimes are very off-key, rinky-dink and clinky, which hurts my musical ears, but your chimes are paradise. I had a hard time choosing from the different sounds and fell in love with a medium size chime called "Earthsong", so I purchased it. I told myself, that I will save up my money for the next time, so I could purchase another one. Every year I searched and searched at our crafts fair, but no Grace Note chimes. My heart ached, I wanted more Grace Note chimes!
Now, about 10 years later, during a vacation, I came across a little windsock store in Halfmoon Bay, California. Finally, my prayers were answered, they had Grace Note chimes. You can not imagine the excitement and joy I felt! I must have spend at least an hour in that store playing and listening to all those beautiful sounds. The person working in the store was very patient and nice, I imagine he probably got a "kick" out of me having so much fun. That day I bought a medium size chime called "Stardust". I could not wait to get home to hang it in our tree next to my other one. They sound so "out of this world" together. I felt like a kid in a candy store, sooo happy!!! Then it hit me, maybe Grace Note chimes has a website on the internet. Sure enough, I found your website and have been browsing now for about 3 hours, listening to the different melodies and deciding which one I should buy next. I also like the sound of the large and extra large ones, but my budget will not allow me to purchase those. It was then that I discovered your "make your own" page. You guys are great, you are a lifesaver! Now I can get (in time) the three other ones I like so much. Maybe one of these days I will win a little money in the lottery, then it definitely will be time to purchase the "super size" chime from you. I am very fond of the min. chimes and was surprised, that "Summer Daydream", a maj. chime, also sounded very, very nice with all the other min. ones.
My family, friends and neighbors always compliment my chimes. Now I have information for them to get in touch with you. My sister lives in Germany and studied music all her life. She is the type of person that will go into a cathedral and start singing sounds in different parts of the church to hear what it will sound like. I will send one to her as a gift, and I know for a fact that she will cherish it forever. It is so peaceful to fall asleep to the sound of your chimes and when there is no breeze, I miss the sound sooo much. One of your customers put it in plain perspective: "the sound changes the vibrations around us and we feel at peace with ourselves".
I thank Jeff and Mark , from the bottom of my heart and soul, for giving us peace, balance and relaxation! You guys are wonderful and "out of this world", like your chimes! Wouldn't it be wonderful, if everyone in this world would have one of your Grace Note chimes? Imagine the beautiful sounds of your chimes, carrying on from one house to the next, from one town to the next, from one land to the next.
Wouldn't it be wonderful?"
Thank you!

I agree with all the comments made. No other windchime caught my attention and held me mesmerized. I refused to own any of the chintzy, tinny, cheap varieties that serve only to annoy. I just found the card again, tucked away for safe keeping and wondered if you had a website. I cannot express how excited I am that you do, are alive and well, and may possibly have distributors in my area. If I cannot buy them locally, I will definitely be visiting your excellent website. Congratulations on your success."

"The fabulous chimes arrived today. Thanks very much for your pleasant, efficient and caring manner. Wish all telephone orders were handled as well as you did this one. Will probably be ordering the extra large chimes next spring. Hope to deal with you again. Have a great summer!"

"I have had my Super Chime for several months now. It is hung in a 100 year old live oak in the front of our home above a park bench where we like to sit in the evenings and visit about the events of the day or whatever is on our minds. Also, the bench is available to and used by older people who are taking a stroll and need to stop for a little rest. We have had so many comments about your chime, everyone loves the soothing and deep notes. On a windy day it is really something to hear but even with a slight breeze, it's sound is soft and compelling. Soon we will be building a naturalistic swimming pool and spa in the rear of our home and your chimes will play a roll there as well. I had seen so many rinky dink chimes through the years but when I found yours, I knew I had found the work of artisians. The wav files makes the choice simple. We are well more than satisfied with our chime and have grown to love it. We will be back to Grace Note for more chimes. I would like that big custom with the 3 inch tubes but I have not convinced myself to invest in quite that much in a chime yet. One note for others. Hanging the chime up high helps to disperse the sound over a wider area and is a must to prevent possible vandals from relieving you of your fine chime. Thank you for a fine product."
Brian Buchner

"WOW! That was impressively quick!
I'll take this opportunity to commend your company on a really great, easy-to-use web site! I love the sound files that allow the customer to experience/select the wind chimes from the comfort of home."
Thanks for the superior service!

D min 7/11 "I HATED wind chimes....only noise. I visited a garden shop, and your chimes were on display. I was awe struck. Being a former musician, noise aggravates me. I can detect when someone is off key, and it is like nails on a chalk board for some. I played with all your chimes and loved the tones, resonance, and most important, tuned. I told my wife about them, and she was astonished, as she loved wind chimes and we never owned one for our 20 years of marriage....UNTIL NOW. I'm probably going to own the entire collection, eventually. From no chimes to Grace Chimes. Since you started in Louisiana, our home state, I know where you got your "Let the good chimes toll", Les bon temps roulet!"

Paradise "I would like to share that I am extremely excited to receive my newly purchased, Large G, Island Melody chime. I have waited a long time to order this chime. They are not inexpensive, but never the less, they are the most beautiful sounding chimes. I have a friend that purchased this particular chime a few years ago, and I must tell you, I look forward to hearing her chimes each and every time I visit her. Karen lives in my home town, out of state, so when I go to visit, I have the privilege of visiting with a dear friend, and sleeping peacefully every evening, as I drift to sleep listening to paradise. I look forward to sharing with her too, that I have finally purchased these chimes. I absolutely love them, and look forward to sharing them with my fiancée, as he is the one purchasing them for me as an engagement gift. Thank you to John (my fiancée) for the beautiful gift, and to you as well for the beautiful music."
Sincerely,
Kim Bailey of GA

"I met Jeff in Salt Lake City in about 1985 when I had a weekend layover in my sales travels, and he was living in a motor home and traveling the home shows. He was doing one at the "Salt Palace" and I was very impressed with the product and his personality too. I wanted one a bit larger than what he had, or I would have bought on the spot. Jeff told me of the difficulty in getting aluminum tubing with just the right sound in the larger diameters. I finally found a "large" at a little beach shop in Cannon Beach, Oregon while my wife and I were on vacation in 1997. So wonderful that within two weeks of listening I ordered the "extra large" direct from Grace Notes. They compliment each other, and we no longer listen to radio music on the deck.....as the chimes are much more soothing and beautiful. Thanks to Jeff and Mark Kile for their perseverance in forming a small family company that produces a truly remarkable product."

"I have looked long and hard for your chimes. I had bought a set 5years ago for my in-laws and have never been able to find a set as nice. I am glad I found you! Another note of what makes your chimes so special is that they make nice gifts and the bottom windplate is perfect to engrave with a date and special message."

" I Love Your Chimes!! I have always liked windchimes, but I recently purchased Summer Daydream and absolutely LOVE it!! It has the most beautiful sound I have ever heard from a windchime. My grandson (8 yrs old) also loves the sound. I hung it from the eaves, between our respective bedroom windows. He enjoys falling asleep to the comforting sounds each night. I am anxious to purchase more of your beautiful chimes."

"I am historically a hater of windchimes. So often they are discordant things, making unwanted noise. Unfortunately, my sweetheart LOVES windchimes and seeing as I love my sweetheart, I buy them for him. Being a windchime skeptic (the ones we have are supposed to be tuned, but they don't sound tuned to me) I was hesitant to spend that much $$ on the chimes, but I decided to get them anyway. When they arrived I was first really impressed with the elegant design. I have no tolerance for cutesy windchimes with plastic birds on top. I liked the brushed silver finish and the lack of "CUTENESS" to the chimes. Then we hung them up and the tone really blew me away- what a beautiful sound, that lasted forever. Mike (the aforementioned sweetie) LOVES them. Previously I found that the sound of windchimes got on my nerves, but I always smile when I hear the Gracenotes. I am very satisfied with the purchase and I can't wait for another occasion where I can buy him the SUPER WINDCHIMES! Thanks for making such a nice and well thought out product!"

GIFT OF LOVE--"My husband bought me the extra large chimes for my birthday a year before we were married. I am a professional singer and the gift was truly a gift of love. The tranquil sound is mesmerizing. Now we are looking to purchase a large set to put out on our gazebo. I enjoyed the wonderful sound so much that I purchased a large set for my parents. They have a large front porch and the neighbors set on their porches and now all want a set. Thank you for such a wonderful product."

"Lorna has a private practice where she uses hypnosis to help her clients. She has a set of your chimes just outside her office that help facilitate her clients to feel a deep sense of relaxation. She has received as many as 40 separate requests from her clients as to how they may purchase their own set of Grace Note Chimes."

"I am a retired physical science instructor, science textbook author, and musician. Two months ago I saw a display of your chimes in a shop in Newberry Port, MA during a visit to my son in Boston. Having always been fascinated and charmed by windchimes because of their relation to the physics of resonance, I was overwhelmed when I saw your Grace Note Chimes. Finally someone had the knowledge to create a beautiful musical sculpture using the physics of an open tube. I was intrigued how you were able to assemble a metal peg in the tube at its nodal point to produce total resonance. The you proceeded to precisely tune 6 tubes, producing a harmonious chord with a tonic root dissonant resolution. I must have studied the chimes for 15 minutes in the store, probably upsetting the proprietor. My son and daughter had to drag me away. Well, to make a long story short, they went back and purchased the Himalayan Echo, B minor 5/6/9 chimes for me as a Father's Day present. I was overcome with joy. It now hangs underneath the overhangi ng roof above my porch at my summer cottage at Legend Lake in northern Wisconsin. The beautiful tones of the G7 chord followed by an occasional dissonant C resonate across the woods and the lake as breezy gusts of wind move past the musical mobile. Thank you so much for a truly creative piece of musical art."

TONES FROM ABOVE!--"I live in a caretakers home at a church in Hawaii. So many people has complimented the sound of my chimes that was given to me by a friend of mine couple of years ago. A lady once told me if there was any sound that described of what heaven would be like, it would be the sound of my chimes. I totally agree!!!!!!!"
Mickey Pauole
Hawaii

"It wasn't until I got them home and was able to compare their sound with that of several neighbors chimes, that I began to really appreciate the difference. I have not seen any other product that reflects your quality of materials and workmanship, much less your harmonic tuning."
W.R. Hawthorne

"I've been besieged by friends and neighbors who want to purchase Grace Note Chimes for themselves."
Mimi Potter

"This is the fourth set of chimes that I've given as a gift from Grace Note and our friends and relatives have all been thrilled."
Sue Blood

"...I went home without buying them; but it was too late - the music was already in my soul, so I went right back and bought a set of Grace Note Chimes. They are hanging in a lovely gnarly old Cat Claw tree and I have a symphony in my back yard."
Sandy Miller

"What a pleasure to have chimes that are pleasing to the ear."
Green Thumb Nursery

"It's just a gentle note that seems to hover around us, soothing on the ear and the psyche. In a sense, it changes the vibrations around us and we feel much better, more relaxed & at peace with ourselves."
Frank Hansen

"We are so delighted with their mystery."
Sylvia Wexler

"I received a set of extra large chimes for my birthday. These are the nicest sounding chimes I have ever heard. One of the out standing qualities about the chimes is the lingering HUUUuuuuuu sound. It is the sound of love. My many thanks to you for building such a fine quality product."
Terry

"I picked up a a stardust 4 years ago and placed it next to my bedroom window, I normally would wake up at all hours of the night and have trouble returning to sleep but now I have no problem thanks to your chimes. Having some limited music background I can hear and see the quality and time you put into your product, thank you." Mike Pietrone
Arlington, Washington

"I LOVE YOUR WINDCHIMES!! Thank you for making such an excellent product. Approximately six years ago I was in San Andreas, CA and found one of your small windchimes. I thought it was kind of expensive but just had to have it. I love windchimes and had several small ones but after hanging your chime the old ones came down because the sound was so inferior to your chime. I now own a medium size one I bought in Old Sacramento and together the music they play is unbelievable. I hope to obtain several more in the future and am planning to buy some for gifts this Christmas. Thank you for your wonderful product. I no longer buy any other windchime. I find the sound so soothing and relaxing."
Catherine Alfrey
Escalon, California

"I purchased one of your large chimes (Treasure of Heaven) and absolutely love it. It is in my background near the window of my home office and when the breeze blows and it rings it is always such a lovely surprise. Unlike most chimes I have heard, these make music, not a metallic tinkling sound. The music is soothing, calming, and makes me happy when I hear it. I am giving a set to a friend of mine for her birthday and can hardly wait for her to hang them so she will love them too! Thank you for taking the time to make such a fine product!
