Product Description

Product Description

Tibetan monks use small cymbals called tingsha, which are sounded to mark the beginning and end of a period of meditation. You can use your Zenergy Meditation Chime in much the same way. The two rods are purposely tuned to nearly –but not quite –the same pitch. When both are struck at the same time, an acoustical phenomenon known as “beating” is produced. The rods will seem to ring with the same pitch, but you will notice a distinct pulsation or rhythm – in this case, approximately 12 beats per second. The following listening exercises can help heighten your sensory awareness and focus your attention at the beginning of a period of meditation: • Strike and dampen each rod separately. Can you tell which one is higher and which is lower? • Strike both rods together and let them ring. Can you hear the pulse created by the “beating?” • Notice how the sound emitted seems to change as you slowly move the instrument from directly in front of you to one side of your head and then to the other. Move the chime over and behind your head as well. • As you listen to the beating, try breathing in for so many beats and then breathing out for twice as long. • Strike both rods again and focus on the sound as it gradually fades into silence. Pay attention to the changes in the rhythms you hear. You can also create your own personal rhythms by striking the wooden cradle. Over 30 years ago, Grammy award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979 and still develop the chimes today. It remains a family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley.

Tapped lightly with the rubber-tipped mallet, this single-tone chime emits a beautiful, gently pulsating ring that resonates an amazingly long time. The polished aluminum rod is fastened to a smooth, cherry-finished hardwood base that measures 7-1/4 inches in length, small enough to keep on a desk or by the bed. One simple ring of this chime helps stress disappear. Musician Gary Kvistad founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979, and today the family-owned company produces a wide range of handcrafted, precision-tuned chimes. A one-year warranty covers the chime against defects, and all tuned Woodstock Chimes come with a lifetime tuning guarantee. --Ann Bieri

I am a regular meditator, and my group of fellow meditation practitioners all use this particular chime model. Between the group of us, we probably own 20 of this chime. It works great. Recently, I lost my chime, and ordered a replacement on Amazon. The new chime (identical model and brand), looks different and sound different than the one I used to have. The rod is now strung higher on the string (leaving a large gap between it and the wood base). The mallet is now shorter (making it harder to control the sound), and would not fit snuggly into the space between the metal rod and the wood base. What's worst is now the sound made by hitting the mallet against the metal rod is totally different. The sound quality is nothing like the recording sample that you hear. It looks to me like the same model was manufactured by 2 different practices and design group. It sound so bad, that I returned it. I consider it defective. Unfortunately, because this model is only available on the Internet, it's hard to see how to look for a store with the old stock. I would gladly paid twice a much to order the old design.

I am a happy owner of this product. Hehe..

Pro: Beautifully crafted. Beautiful sound. Compact, and travel friendly.

Cons: When I recieved the chime, I realized that it does not sit evenly on an even surface. (Sad)

However, I have found a fix for that! I sticked two 3M small-size black rubber anti-slip mat on the base of my chime - My chime now seats comfortably on any solid surface top.

Click on the link below (Woodstock Chimes Official Website), you can play and hear a media file of the sound of the chime.

The Zenergy Solo Chime has a wonderfully beautiful resonating ring about it. I begin and end my mindfulness sessions with a gentle tap on the chime. It is perfect and also inexpensive compared to singing bowls, Intikin bells, clappers and other devices for summoning and ending mindful exercises. I highly recommend it.

As a teacher this gets their attention without using my voice, and that's a great thing!

I am an elementary school teacher and I use the chime to get my students' attention. I love it because it is calming yet attention-getting. With this, I don't have to raise my voice. Great classroom management tool.

The chime is tied off-center in the wooden cradle. Doesn't look good, doesn't sound good. The sound dies down very quickly.

Great for calming the atmosphere or spicing it up... depending on the situation. I just came back from a drum circle using one of these during it, and i have to say it is a very nice touch to a typical drum circle. I also just use it in my room every here and there and it rings out long and peacefully. I just think the mallet is a little to hard for a peaceful charm, but it is still nice.
