I thought this was to be more harmonic then it is. The beads fall every once in awhile after you turn it over and they detach from the adhesive on the inside lid. I was looking to have something like a rain stick that would provide a steady stream sound when turned over and turned back upright. This product is overpriced for what you get. I would not recommend it.
I bought two similar rain chimes and this one wins hands down. Not to much to assemble, easy instructions, nicely made. It has delicate sounding chimes. The more you use it the better it works. Not too big, could be put on a desk top or next to a bed. Gave it as a gift, wish I had bought one for myself.
I was given one of these in the cherry finish, about 15 years ago, and several people have remarked how much they like it. I bought these for two people I needed a gift for and had no idea what to get them. They love them. They are so relaxing. One of them arrived with the plastic bag with the little balls in them open and most of the balls missing. I called customer service and within a few days, they sent me a new bag. I have a neice who is going to have a serious foot surgery soon and I'm going to get her one. She will find it very soothing while she recuperates.
After I saw these chimes in a catalog several years ago, I was patiently waiting for a time when I could afford them. With the discount price at Overstock I was finally able to purchase them. It was easy to unpack the product and put it together (very little assembly). One piece of sound material inside had come loose, but was easy to re-stick, and after adjusting the 3 chimes to be evenly spaced, I found they worked very nicely. The metal balls drop randomly and are sometimes faster and sometimes slower - as mentioned in the instructions, weather can be a factor. This just adds to the enjoyment, since no two "listenings" are the same.

I had owned one of these rainfall boxes (a larger version) which was accidentally dropped/broken so I was very happy to find it again on Overstock.com I like the smaller version for tabletop use. I keep it in my sun room which has a high ceiling so when the chimes ring, the sound carries all over the room.
One thing that the instructions didn't mention was that you must remove two of the inner foam packing strips, otherwise your chimes will not chime, they will "thud." The inserts with the "zig zag" on them are meant to remain inside... but the other two foam pieces need to be removed.
Something else that is mentioned in the directions but I strongly recommend users to do is after you have peeled off the protective sheet from the adhesive (under the top of chime) be sure to press on it several times with your fingers to reduce the stickiness. This will allow for the balls to fall more easily and give you a really nice chiming sound... otherwise it can take several weeks for the glue to naturally begin to lose some of its stickiness and the balls won't fall in a musical way. (If you've never owned one of these, what I just typed probably makes NO sense but just trust me....LOL)
Great product... great price.... great, soothing background noise.

Thank you for contacting us iboinoc. There is no power source for this item. It works by gravity. It has small metal balls that initially stick to the top of the chime. With gravity the balls slowly start to drop and hit the chimes as they fall.
