Treeworks Chime Damper is designed to be used with TreeWorks Chimes as well as other manufactures’ chimes. It is made of laser cut steel with a black powder coat finish. The tension of the damper is adjustable. The TRE54 also incorporates our TRE52 mounting bracket that can be attached to the tubular section of a stand. No Extra Stand Needed – Just place your chime on the included mounting bracket. This leaves the top of your stand free for another instrument. Exact Sustain Control – The damper arm can be left loose and moved into action as needed. Or it can be locked into any position making it possible to precisely control how long the chime will ring. One Handed Use – Totally rigid laser cut steel. The damper arm allows for smooth one handed movement with no twisting or binding. Not so with most designs. Not only can you stop the chimes on command; the damper will keep the bars from accidentally sounding at unwanted times (like windy outdoor concerts, marching band or unstable stages).
