FPW Frank Perry Wands for singing bowls
Frank Perry has one of the oldest and largest antique singing bowl collections in the United Kingdom. Frank is a master at bringing out individual tones from bowls. One of his secrets are small wands made from fine wood that he hand turns on a lathe at his home in the south of England. Each wood and finish has different playing characteristics.
Tiny wands 6″ long and half an inch in diameter can bring incredible sounds out of the largest singing bowl. Massive wands 15 to 30 times heavier are easy to use as their weight naturally presses against the rim. Best for larger bowls.
