Chime on the Hour Alarm Clock

In addition to functioning as a chiming alarm clock and countdown timer, the  Digital Zen Alarm Clock can be set to chime repeatedly at any set interval, and to chime once on the hour every hour. The chime’s “B tone” has been hand-tuned using the ancient Pythagorean method-the clock’s tone is the same as that produced by tuning forks used by musical therapists. And not only does the Digital Zen Alarm Clock sound beautiful, it looks beautiful as well. Its solid hardwood case is an attractive addition to an altar or mantel. Our company, Now & Zen, began in 1996 with the introduction of our now world famous Zen Alarm Clock (the original table-top model). Although we have developed many new products since then, nothing we have produced has generated the excitement and anticipation of the Digital  Zen Alarm Clock.

Natural Tuning- Bamboo Zen Clock by Now & Zen

Depending on which model you have, The Digital Zen Alarm Clock’s chime sounds either a “B” note or an “E” note, both of which have been naturally tuned according to the method developed by the ancient Greek master Pythagoras.  The Clock’s B or E notes, however, vibrate at different frequencies than their equivalent notes on a modern piano.

Modern natural tuning methods facilitate musical composition, but they compromise the enchanting and therapeutic quality—the purity—of the naturally occurring tones discovered by Pythagoras.  As a result of its natural tuning, the Digital Zen Alarm Clock’s tone reflects the vibrations of nature—the motion of the planets and the frequencies of life.

The Greek philosopher, sage and mathematician Pythagoras who flourished in the 6th century BC, circa 530 BC.

Studies indicate that certain sounds can actually stimulate our nervous systems and charge our brains. Gregorian chants, for example, have been shown to energize the brains of both the chanting monks as well as those who listen to the chants.  Because of its Pythagorean tuning, the Digital Zen Alarm Clock’s chime may produce a subtle charging effect on your mind.
