Cape Cod Bell™
From the Norsemen onward, hardy men and women have sought the beautiful sand beaches of Cape Cod. But only within recent history have sailors enjoyed the peace of mind provided by bell buoys sounding their distinct tones across Cape Cod's waters.
About Buoys Bells
This is a family story, started by Jim and May Davidson on the craggy Maine Coast, in the mid seventies. In the small village of Round Pond they, their family and neighbors, craft wind bells that echo the distinctive and familiar tones of coastal and harbor bells.
For many years, Jim like his neighbors, worked as a lobsterman. He spent countless hours on the water listening to the pouring surf and the constant warning of the bell buoys. After a time, it occurred t him, that others may also enjoy the reassuring sound of the bell buoys.
He began recording the sounds of the bell and gong buoys where he hauled his lobster traps, and then eagerly sought other bells in the region. After painstakingly working pieces of steel to match the tones he produced his first set of bells - these bells recall the haunting, yet comforting sounds Jim experienced while working along the New England Coast. Over time, additional bells have been added to this impressive collection.
