Specifically, this chime is tuned to a chord (musically speaking, it's a C9 chord) often used in the vocal harmonies of doo-wop music from the 1950s. The term "doo-wop" comes from the signature background vocals of this musical style.
With roots in the R&B music of African and Italian Americans, doo-wop music brings a feeling of nostalgia in a way that only music can. Even if you didn't grow up in the 1950s, listening to the Drifters, the Platters and other great doo-wop groups, you can enjoy the recognizable harmony of this chime. Hang this chime indoors or in your garden and let it harmonize with your surroundings.
