The Woodstock Chimes Story

Woodstock Chimes offers a unique variety of high quality, affordable musical gifts from around the world that inspire, entertain and bring pleasure to people of all ages. We design and sell the world-famous Woodstock Chimes and distribute a line of award-winning musical instruments and toys called the Woodstock Music Collection. My wife, Diane, and I started Woodstock Percussion, Inc. in 1979. We are a family-owned business located in New York's beautiful Hudson Valley. In addition to being the founder and owner of Woodstock Chimes, I am a professional musician. I tour and record with the world-renowned percussion group NEXUS, as well as with Steve Reich. My background in music explains my strong commitment to fine tuning and great sound - which is what makes our products appealing to everyone and unique to the gift industry. I am proud of every product we make and hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do.

Testimonials

  • For the past twenty years Wind Song has been selling wind chimes. We have always featured Woodstock Chimes as our top of the line wind chime. This is due to tuning, style, durability and customer service. Throughout the years we have had experience with many artists and manufacturers. Woodstock has been able to combine both art and business. We can always count on Woodstock to stand behind their craftsmanship. Their detail in workmanship shows. When it comes to exceptional wind chimes we always steer our customers towards Woodstock.

  • Woodstock wind chimes caught my attention twenty years ago when my children were buying them for all their friends who were getting married. I had a small new business and decided I should carry them since I was buying so many anyway. During the past 20 years I have experienced tremendous growth of which Woodstock products have contributed significantly to my bottom line. Both the company and their rep group have been very accommodating to work with and their product is the best! Our biggest sales tool has been to place a King David chime outside our front door. We have become the place in our area to come for Woodstock.

  • Boy do we wish that we listened to you at the last trade show. The Crystal Fantasy and Rainbow/Moonlight Cascades are flying out the door for us! Four days on the floor and we sold 20+ already. Just put in another $700+ order for more stock.
    Thank you for continuing to push them for us. We are so glad you finally convinced us.

  • Love these chimes. I have bought several for gifts...birthday, wedding, etc., and thought it was about time to buy myself some. The gifted chimes have always been a great gift and my friends have enjoyed them for years and they are truly a special gift to give or receive. They are the best!!

    Bill, Ed & The Farmhands The Farmhouse Store

  • Woodstock has brought that little something special to our toy store! The window crystals and fantasy figures have been a great addition to our tween gift offerings, and our small selection of chimes has made our fairy section unique! The window sparklers hanging by our POS are so eye-catching and beautiful to look at, they inspire impulse buys. Our customers love giving them as gifts for all sorts of occasions, such as housewarmings and birthdays. We started with Chimalongs, harmonicas, accordions and pan flutes, but have ended up really loving the crystals and chimes -- we couldn’t be more pleased about having them in the shop!

  • A customer reported to me yesterday, that the new owner of a King David Chime (hanging in a very large tree on their farm), said that the chickens are producing twice as many eggs and the goats are giving double the milk. King David is getting all the credit. They believe it is causing a calming effect on their animals. We may really have something here. They may be over run by rabbits anytime. Never underestimate the wonderful effects of music.

  • I have been very pleased with the Woodstock line. I have moved it in my store, and it now occupies about 25% of my floor space (Just the other window, where there was more space. The chimes are spread out, and the customers are eating it up!! (Thank goodness!!) Woodstock has really saved me during this down economy
