1216 Rare Antique Jambati Singing Bowl with exceptional high notes.
Rare heavy weight broad rim Jambati. This old style bowl has light original patina and worn complex artwork. The bowl truly sings. A deep fundamental tone acts as an understory to a suite of high pitched sounds that each have their moments in the sustain. Those high notes just carry you along. The bowl wants to play the primary tone with leather. To get it going with wood I used a rapid back and forth motion (back of clip 2) to avoid a rim nick. Bowls with this quality of sound and sytlistic antiquity are getting very difficult to find With overtones at F#5, F6, C#7.
