S9 25 Piece Sequential Antique Thadobati Singing bowl Set
Hand assembled set Thadobati bowls under 6 inches wide chosen to span a range of notes and to sound great together. This wonderful set includes has many different sizes and styles. Included is an extremely well preserved triple circle bowl, ancient extra thick bowls and a gorgeous tiny piece at the very high end. It makes a great contrast with the second highest bowl which is the largest in the set. Attention has been paid to making the intervals between bowls fairly even so you can hear the steps, some of which are less than half a note. Sequentially labeled.
All the bowls are good to excellent quality pieces. The set contains a range of sub-styles, ages and states of preservation.
The set costs $100 a bowl. Individually priced, some bowls would be higher and some as lower but the total would be quite a bit more than $2500.
The set comes with full statistics for each bowl, dimensions, weight, frequencies, notes and overtones. Each bowl is individually labeled with the note and octave as well as their place in the sequence. The labeling is really helpful, makes it easy to lay the bowls out and associate them. The individual bowls in the set are listed below.
It takes time and energy to put something like this together. It also takes a special ear and eye. There is no bowl in this set that I did not first select over in Asia out of stacks of similar material. They had to catch my ear individually over there first. Months later when assembling this set, they had to fit into a Gestalt.
The set contains:
25 small Thadobati bowls, range D4 to G5 – one single tone sequence
