In 2009 we purchased our bell, and it is still just as sturdy and sounds just as great as the day it was delivered! I'm a stroke survivor, and the sound of our Bar Harbor Buoy Bell is soothing and creates a stress-free zone for me!
I purchased the Outer Banks bell and am delighted with the tone. Hanging in my garden its' resonance brings back fond memories of traveling between the islands of the Outer Banks. It is well made and should last many years.

I love the deeper tones of this chime. Most chimes are a bit too tinkly. With this one, I can bring the cost with me wherever I live!

Wonderful sound! Very relaxing! Made a great gift !
Thrilling gift- brought back memories of Maine.
THIS BOUY BELL/CHIME IS EXACTLY AS SELLER DEPICTS! I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE TONE, THE LOOK AND THE QUAILTY! I AM PLANNING AHEAD AND THINKING OF WAYS TO GIFT THESE BOUY BELL/CHIMES TO FRIENDS. I'M TINKING HOUSE WARMING GIFTS!
This was a gift for a couple who just bought a new home. It will remind them of our friendship and joy in this new chapter of their life.
I'm using the Bar Harbor buoy bell at my mother's memorial, as she was born in Vinalhaven, MA. and I want to remember her when I hear the wind chime clang, like off the ocean. If the wind blows too hard, and the bell gets too loud, the clapper inside can be "hushed", and made silent, so as not to disturb the neighbors and sleeping children. I can hardly wait for the wind to stir it, and bring back long lost memories being close to the sea....and my mom's memory.
