After putting up with noisy neighbours for years, I decided to join their ranks.:D;)

I gave Jo a couple of wind chime bells for her birthday. When the wind pipes up so do the bells.

This is what my neighbours are now hearing

Cap Cod bell (http://sites.commercecreators.com/folder1352/CapeCodbell.wav)

and

Chesapeake bell (http://sites.commercecreators.com/folder1352/Chesapeakebell.wav)

So far so good, no complaints yet.

I've found that the Jimi Hendrix version of The Star-Spangled Banner, with the volume turned up to 11, at 6 in the morning is very effective payback. For best results, place the speakers on the porch aimed appropriately. Sit on the speaker with a baseball bat in one hand and a cuppa joe in the other...

I have the neighbors raising hell today like every weekend. I figured it a good day to tune up the outboard and sea foam it while I was at it. I have an intermittent miss on #3 so I will probably have to run it again next weekend after I rebuild the carbs. Synching takes a bit.

The Grateful Dead's Anthem Of The Sun also works wonders.

I have found Iron Maiden turned up to about 12 or 13 to hear it over the power tools to be particularly effective, especially after the neighbors have been boozing and partying until about 0300.

My parents have one of those wind chimes and it makes quite a nice sound. I am usually not a big fan of wind chimes but those bell chimes are just fine with me.

I have one, it sounds like the bell buoy in the mouth of West Falmouth harbor. Great!

Not an option, but as long as my neighbours don't see that post I'll be fine.

My personal favorite was the old stereo demonstration record withe low flying jet and the train.....turn up a couple hundred watts in their direction and play the train track every morning at 4:15 or some such...it take 30 plus seconds to hear it coming then the entire house will shake from the reverberation and doppler shift as it goes through.

I was going to suggest you 'amateurs' go for the gold - nothing is in the class of playing Lawrence Welk in the early morning hours. If they're raising hell all hours of the night, they might actually like Hendrix as a wakeup call...

Then I read Paladins' offering. Sorry, can't compete with that. Sleep well now, ya hear? :D

The police told me not to antagonize the neighbors no more.

They told me i need to be the "bigger man"

You could move... The only noise I hear from my neighbors is the sound of tractor engines and an occasional rifle shot (not aimed toward me, just to clarify).

The only time I had a problem like that that couldn't be handled by diplomacy was two college girls who lived above us when I first moved back to Ma. while looking for a house. The kids were still little and they would come home at 2am and blast the music several times a week and no talking worked.
I waited till a good drunk had gone on and early that morning and electric jack hammer on a steel plate cured their ills.;)

A 12 ga Slug should take care of that noizey contraption

It would also get you a quick trip to the slammer and confiscation of your gun where I live.

Maybe this is what you need...

The quarter-inch pipes are between 6 and 9 feet long with a diameter of six-and-a-half inches. They produce the most beautiful tones Iíve ever heard, soft and sweet. The entire instrument, tuned to a pentonic scale in D, is about 16 feet tall, weighs 400 pounds and is currently accessible to the public in a huge maple tree, 1718 Palm Ave, Chico CA.
The artist who created this magnificent piece is Gregg Payne (http://www.greggpayne.com/). He is also responsible for this giant xylophone in Wildwood Park, Chico CA.

Better yet is the xylophone...

a little aluminum powder, magnesium powder, fine iron filings, a paste made from the sam e ingredients and elmers glue and painted all over the chimes in the middle of the night, ignited by a short piece of magnesium ribbon, no noise, no chimes, no evidence........:D

We have some otherwise very nice neighbors who installed one of those bamboo wind chime contraptions that drives us nuts. Why oh why do people think everyone else wants to hear what they like to hear? I've thought of offering to buy it from him on the condition that he doesn't replace it. Don't know of any other options that won't start a war.
