The Mongolian scale, a livelier version of the Chinese, is reminiscent of church and temple bells. The major pentatonic scale in root position in the key of A, it harmonizes nicely with the Aquarian or Quartal.
Alto chimes use 1-1/2" diameter tubing and are approximately 48" in overall length.
These enchanting chimes blend old world craftsmanship with the latest in technology - harmonizing art and science to uplift the spirit and delight the senses.
