New for 2017, Pearl has added a twist to its 36 bar Aluminum chime by adding a hinge that allows the instrument to be folded in half. Typically 36 bar wind chimes are too long to fit into the standard gig bag, but this simple innovation cuts the size in half going from 19.25” in length to 9.75”. Pearl’s 36 Bar Foldable Wind Chime features a single row of individually strung Aluminum alloy chimes that deliver a bright sound with superior note clarity. When folded, the instrument can be played as a double row set. The hand polished chimes are strung using a durable cord, not nylon and attached to the header finished in Satin Black. The wind chimes come complete with a carry case and striker.
