If you'd like to hear yours more often, here are a few ideas:Hang your chime directly from the O ring or loop at the top of the chime. Don't extend the top string of the chime by adding chain or string. This may cause the entire chime to swing, when in fact only the center string and clapper should move. Hang your chime where the wind can reach it from as many directions as possible. An open corner is ideal when hanging the chime from a building. Experiment with hanging your chime at different heights. Wind velocity tends to increase with higher elevation. Avoid hanging your chime within two feet of a wall or too close to plants, furniture and anything that might obstruct or divert the breeze.
