Antique Jambati Singing Bowl with black patina and brassy soundscape

1484 Antique Jambati Singing Bowl with black patina and brassy soundscape

Simple jambati with startling almost black patina. Simple inner circles show significant signs of use. Brassy soundscape where many notes play at the start. Over time they calm down and the bass tone emerges as strongest. Longevity is fair. Good pure bass off the rim with leather. Leather also works to sing out the highs. Rim is a bit rough for good wood play. With overtones at C4, C5, G#5, D6.
