The Acoustic Alarm

If you’re not a morning person and hate the irritating cacophony of most alarm clocks then you’ll appreciate this design by Jamie McMahon. Handcrafted from 2mm thick birch plywood, walnut, and stainless steel, the Acoustic Alarm combines aesthetic rawness and simple string-pluckin’ functionality to gently awaken the user from slumber. The alarm uses a rotational pick to pluck guitar strings and has been designed to allow the user to customize the tone of the alarm to their liking with a simple adjustment of the tuning pegs.
