8766 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a woo-woo however you tap it

Smooth, very bright Manipuri with almost no remaining art. The bowl is thick and solid. The most prominent sonic feature to this bowl is the deep and strong oscillation (woo-woo) on the primary tone. There are supporting overtones, of course, but struck hard or soft the woo-woo prevails. Those overtones are arranged harmoniously so the woo-woo is soothing, not jarring. That pulse does use energy resulting in a relatively short sustain. A smooth rim makes for easy stick play, interestingly the overtone that comes off the rim also oscillates deeply. With overtones at G#5, G6, D#7.
