8912 Heavy Large Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with deep low and swirly high

Large and thick Manipuri with original patina, many clear outer lines and a flange rim. Soft low, especially with a soft mallet, with overtones that emerge and swirl. Harder mallets bring out the higher aspects of the bowl. Sustain is good, harmony just fair. Unlike some large Manipuri, this bowl plays the low strongly off the rim – but you need a really big stick to control the rim. A smaller stick plays the overtones cleanly with leather, pretty much the same as wood would do. With overtones at G#4, G5, D#6, A6.
