Mitch McMichen

As a teenager, Mitch's interests shifted to making music. His instrument of choice was percussion and drums. Each day after school, he spent hours playing drums. Through college, Mitch not only continued to play drums but also studied classical piano. This training and those endless hours of practice gave him the confidence to leave his hometown in Florida and attempt to "make it" in Nashville, Tennessee. While working his way up as a studio drummer, he noticed that most percussion instruments were mass produced imports with no character or individuality. So he returned to his love of woodworking and began making his own instruments - experimenting and creating new sounds. When some fellow drummers and percussionists began asking for them, too, Mitch knew he was on to something. Eventually he retired from drumming (after earning gold and platinum records for his work with country music artist Brad Paisley) in order to focus on crafting his instruments. What started in a one-car garage has now grown to a small group of dedicated craftsman specializing in these unique instruments. Interesting tidbit: their shop is located in the historical May Hosiery Mill that made the socks for the famed Apollo II astronauts. collection

              I use the trio chime as a way to destress before I go into work. I rink each chime once and let the sound dissipate before ringing the next chime
