8716 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with slow and steady soundscape

Brassy Manipuri with unusual wide inner circles on the bottom and sidewalls. Close to a perfect A3 220, this bowl has a very “cool” soundscape with either very slow or steady oscillations. The strike tone is nice and steady it quickly drops in audibility leaving the slow pulse and steady overtones. You can accentuate the low note with a soft mallet (last 5 seconds recording 1). Sustain is good as is rim play. For primary overtone leather teases it out smoothly, for higher overtones a small stick works fine, even better the a wand.. With overtones at D#5, D#6, A#6.
