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

One of my favorite items in my project house is the traditional doorbell chime. It sounds great. 

It certainly makes me want  to climb the stairs to see the rest of the house!

I wonder if the two Friends are about to ring the doorbell and take their places in the dual Barcalounger in the room beyond the ElectraChime Metro Walnut door chime with three nickel plated tubular bells. 

They would be are sure to admire the starburst wallpaper in this oh-so-tastefully renovated Mid-Century home in suburban Saint Louis.

Flattered to share a wall with Edna Hibel

Posted on June 05, 2015 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

An Empire Seashell Doorbell shares a wall with original lithographs from Edna Hibel, a family friend of the Brunswick, Maine homeowner. 

Edna Hibel's prolific work has been featured on playing cards, as dolls and as reproductions for her fans. In response to criticism of a line of Royal Doulton plates featuring her work,  Ms Hibel told the Boston Globe: 

“I’m flattered by the good company I’ll be keeping on the plate rails and china closets of the world.”

ElectraChime is flattered to share a wall with Edna Hibel.

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.
