The Portland Head Light Buoy Bell has been created to mimic the specific tones heard in Casco Bay off of Portland Head Light. Each North Country Wind Bell is based on Jim (founder) and his family’s interpretation of the gong and bell buoys in the areas for which they’re named. Because of the wide variance in their tones, their groupings have resulted in single, double and triple-toned buoy bells.
Every North Country Wind Bell is shaped from quality steel which is over 60% recycled! All steel is a “living finish” and will patina over time, but will play for many years to come. All of North Country’s bells are powder coated with a durable outdoor weathering finish. These characteristics make it ideal for North Country Wind Bells, which are designed to hang outdoors year-round, and will not twist, tangle or break.
Quality materials, fine workmanship and family pride ensure that these rugged bells from North Country Wind Bells will endure for many years to come. Even hung far from the ocean, their response to a gentle breeze carries pleasant reminders of ocean swells and the constant vigil sounded by coastal and harbor bells.
