6074 Huge Antique Mani Singing Bowl with focused, rapid fire sound

Very large extra thick Mani with extremely broad rim. 8 1/4 inches and two kilos is at the top end of this style’s range. This ancient bowl is smooth to the touch. Originally deeply engraved, you can still see the full set of markings, underneath the creamy original patina. The bowl is very responsive, the slightest tap sets it off and playing the softest sound in it’s frequency range will get it going without a tap. The sounds in the bowl are very focused, you hear just the primary and first overtone as the other frequencies are very subtle. This makes for a pleasing purity of sound. The bowl has really rapid oscillations, so fast that they can merge in your mind. Sustain is very good, better than many extra thick bowls. The bowl sings with wood, not leather (recording 2). Can also be played nicely with a soft mallet as in second part of clip 1.  With overtones at A#6 and G#7
