Corinthian Bells? wind chimes are the first in a new generation of wind chimes to combine excellence in design with incredible tones and resonance. These are visually and acoustically exceptional chimes. The centrally suspended heavy-walled aluminum tubes along with the high density striker give these chimes their outstanding tones and resonance. The tubes are powder coated to match the dome and wind sail, giving a complete finished look to the chime. Corinthian wind chimes are available in a variety of sizes, and designer colors. They are hand tuned to scale, each size is a specific key, so that you can harmonize multiple chimes. Price range from $67 - 395.

About Long Grove Originally settled as a German farming community, the Village of Long Grove's rich historical background gave way to a multitude of additional cultures such as French, Polish, Greek, Irish, Canadian, Scottish, British, Scandinavian, Italian, Native American and many more. Notoriously known as a 'must-see' destination in Lake County, the Village gives visitors a very unique feel unlike any other place. It is almost as if they are nestled in a hidden town in Europe. Recognized as one of the nation's genuine historic villages, and famous for their annual festivals, the Village of Long Grove also serves as a Midwest destination, known for its one-of-a-kind, unique shopping experience that cannot be duplicated. Only in Long Grove can one experience a charming, historic village abundant with unspoiled natural beauty and a diverse collection of shops, restaurants and events, all supported by a genuine hospitality rarely found in urban environments. A 35-mile jaunt from Chicago, the Village of Long Grove is an experience not to be missed.
