If you have an extra piece of conduit, paint it & see what it does.

I would think that painting it will deaden the sound or pitch.

It they are going to be hung in a circle I don't think it makes a difference. If hung in-line then largest to smallest.

While it may tone it down some I don't think it will eliminate the sound. I do agree that the pitch will be different.
