Large Antique Jambati Singing Bowl with sweet and solid soundscape
1495 Large Antique Jambati Singing Bowl with sweet and solid soundscape
Large thick and heavy Jambati with broad rim and rich hammermark patina. This well crafted bowl has a broad inner facing rim and classical etching inside and out. Weighing in at almost 5 Lbs it is quite heavy for an 11 inch bowl. The rim art is deeply incuse, that along with the weight will date this earlier than most Jambati. There is a clear 7 character inscription that was added at a later time. It, too, being etched instead of a series of dots is a marker of antiquity.
Sweet soundscape with solid singing overtones and a harmonious slowly pulsing fundamental note. This is one of those bowls where it is very easy to hear multiple tones clearly and separately. Very good longevity, the bowl holds both the fundamental and overtone well. For more bass and less overtone the large white mallet is the best choice, especially if you are interested in accentuating the near Solfeggio 174 Hz fundamental. Plays cleanly off the smooth rim with the large leather ringing stick. The sheer mass of the bowl comes into play as you spin the rim, not so much in volume but in how the bowl vibrates physically in your hand. Go for a massive wand if you’re wanting to play the overtones. With wood the bowl can be driven to room filling volume. With overtones at C5 537 Hz. , C6, G#6.
A striking example of the old Himalayan artwork with a soundscape to match. Purchased by Best Singing Bowls in 2015.
