The PlayMore Rainbow Chime Unit has eight colored chimes, tuned to an F Major Diatonic scale. This means the notes range from F to F, and all notes are natural with the expectation the B which is Bb (B-flat). The chimes are powder coated for a durable and vibrant color finish. The colors for the first seven chimes follow the colors of a rainbow. “Roy G. Biv” is an acronym that helps you to remember the order of the colors; it stands for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. The eighth chime starts a new musical octave and is colored red for the F note. The longest chime has the lowest note and the shortest chime has the highest note. The chimes can be played by bumping them against the striker bars or with recycled plastic mallets
