Some chimes seem to be overpowering and much louder than you might want. To lessen the harshness of chimes, stuff a cotton ball into each end of each metal cylinder. The result will be a muted, much softer sound that might be better suited to your ears.
Your neighbors might appreciate it too!
Thanks for the good idea.
