S8 12 Piece Sequential Antique Manipuri Singing bowl Set

Hand assembled set of Manipuri bowls chosen to span a range of notes and to sound great together.  Attention has been paid to making the intervals between bowls fairly even. All the bowls are good to excellent quality pieces. The set contains a range of sub-styles, ages and states of preservation. I have to say it takes time and energy to put something like this together.  There is no bowl in this set that I did not first select over in Asia out of stacks of similar material.  They each had to catch my ear over there first.  When assembling this set all the individual bowls had to meld into a sonically coherent whole.

Each bowl is individually labeled with the note and octave as well as their place in the sequence.  The set comes with full statistics for each bowl, dimensions, weight, frequencies, notes and overtones. The labeling is really helpful, makes it easy to lay the bowls out and associate them.

The set  costs $100 a bowl. Individually priced, some bowls would be  higher and some as lower but the total would be more than $1200.

12 antique Manipui bowls in the 3rd and 4th octaves – one single tone sequence

Widest Diameter: 6 inHeight: 16 in
