Strike A Chord

Take a moment to find your center and enjoy peace in a simple chord with this beautifully handcrafted energy chime. Made from Tennessee hardwood and finished with a natural oil rub, this meditative instrument features three chimes that ring out lingering, cascading tones.

An attached card with the signature of the craftsman who made it lends to its unique appeal, while the simple, clear notes are a soothing way to begin meditation or just enjoy a private moment during the day. Handmade by Mitch McMichen in Tennessee.

Made in Tennessee

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.

I bought this to take to our cottage as a door bell and I think it's going to be good for that when I figure out the best way to attach it. Whether one holds the wooden back or hangs on to the leather strap that holds it up the tones of the chimes sound beautiful, and I think they'll be loud enough to hear at the cottage in the country (perhaps not if it were in a loud city). When I first tried it I thought that one of the chimes was slightly off-key, but I kept hitting each of the chimes and now either my hearing has changed or it was not off-key. They play a perfect C-G-C.

It's beautifully made but the middle chime is lifeless.

                My daughter has yet to receive her Energy Chime. I set mine on a table in the center of all the action in my residence. That way if there is a need to 'chill' I ultimately will pass by the chimes and tap off one or a pattern of chimes. Once I note a smile on my face I say 'thank you' and move on with my day.

                        I chose these chimes because I had some leftover credit, and after I received the set, and heard the sound from these chimes, I decided to do some checking on the manufacturer. Turns out they are a custom chime maker, mostly for percussionist. The quality is first rate. They ring "forever". The construction is sturdy, the materials are well chosen. Those searching for a "serenity" chimes will also love this product.

                          My sister is a yoga instructor and does daily meditation. She says these are the same chimes they use at her school and unbeknownst to me she had been longing for a personal set. She couldn't be happier.
