1843 Very Large Exceptional Antique Jambati Singing Bowl with rare harmony #1843

1. Best L1 Large Soft White Felt Mallet single tap.
2. Rim Play: N105 XL Ringing Stick leather low then overtone followed by FP Massive Yew Wand

Large black and brass colored Jambati with a very long inscription. The bowl has some interior etching, outside the adornment is just the color contrast.

Deep evenly pulsing bass enhanced by a solid first overtone. This is the rare bowl below 80 Hz that also rates premium harmony. More than just sound this large bowl pushes the atmosphere around it, a visceral as well as sonic experience. Impressive. Sustain is excellent as well. Rim play is impressive. You can drone the bass with all it’s low frequency intensity. Playing the overtone solo you can hear some of what goes into the premium soundscape. A massive wand plays the next high A442, almost perfectly in tune. Great bowl, rated exceptional.

Now for the rest of the story. This bowl was sent to a customer by USPS which mangled the box. They also managed to slightly dent the rim. The customer sent the bowl back and I recovered partial insurance. Playing the bowl the sound is just as good, a dent is not a crack. Cracks can kill a bowl. Only difference is the slight visible dent, and when I say slight if I did not mark it you might not see it, Even spinning the rim it does not change how you bring up the sound. If you lean into the dent you will feel a bump each time you spin the rim, more sensitive technique  will avoid this Great price for a big exceptional bowl, the Post Office’s loss passed on to you. With overtones at A#3, A4.
