This bar chime produces the pitch C of the 5th octave in a clear tone with a long sustain perfect for meditation, inspiration, and clarification. The metal bar is suspended above the rubber wood base by a colored cord. The Root Chakra resonates with the musical pitch of C. It is located at the base of your spine. Sitting cross-legged, it grounds you to the earth. This is the place of fear and it controls your fight or flight response. A solid wooden mallet is included.
