A Gift for Musicians

Posted on December 29, 2016 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

I love the sound and it's beautiful .  I  bought this for my kids, they are both musicians and I thought they would appreciate real chimes, instead of the digital world they live in.... also, you don't see these any more.

Thanks again

Where is it Christmas Every Day?

In Santa Claus, Indiana! This ElectraChime Empire with three brass bells rings in every holiday while Kris Kringle keeps watch in an adjacent room. That the house is on Candy Cane Lane lends one more sweet note. 

Santa Claus has the world's only post office to bear the name of Santa Claus and thus receives thousands of letters to Santa from all over the world each year. A group of volunteers known as Santa's Elves ensures each child receives a reply from Santa Claus; this tradition has been in existence since at least 1914.

Does Your Doorbell Match Your Floors?

Posted on June 29, 2015 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

On occasion, a client requests an ElectraChime to match existing architectural elements. In this installation, we executed a Metro cover in white oak and used the same stain as the refinished original 1930s floors.

Paired with three nickel-plated brass bells, this Oakland, California doorbell niche is stylishly retro-modern with a kind of "always been there" aesthetic.

How high is too high?

Posted on May 12, 2015 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

The answer isn't entirely existential when it comes to doorbells. Still, there is no single answer. ElectraChimes are meant to be seen, and heard. As a rule of thumb, we recommend the top of the chime be hung just above eye level at about six and one half feet on a standard eight foot wall.

Here are two installations close to the the ceiling. 

In the first example, a Coronet with a custom walnut cover and nickel-plated bells rests comfortably in a newly constructed home in Connecticut. The homeowner could have built the chime niche anywhere they wanted, yet chose a location near the ceiling.  

The Texas installation at right is a Coronet with three brass bells at the former location of a more modest doorbell. This negated the need for the homeowner to move the wires and patch the wallpaper. 

As a practical matter, playful children and pets are less likely to play with the tubular bells when they are mounted just out of reach.
