Antique Manipuri Lingam Singing Bowl with complex soundscape #6712

1. Best L 6 Large Medium Mallet single tap.
2. Rim Play: N102 Medium Ringing Stick leather then wood followed by FP Tulipwood Wand

Thick larger Manipuri Lingam with uneven patina. The interior is worn almost smooth from use while the exterior has clear extensive artwork. The bowl has a small non-sonic crack at the bottom, visible on both sides and is marked down for the flaw. The lingam rises out of the bottom of the bowl without any indentation underneath, the sign of a bowl crafted from the beginning for ceremonial use.

Complex initial soundscape, very good harmony, which quickly settles down to the overtone. While you might not be able to hear it clearly on the recording the bowl continues that subtle tone for quite a long time.

Excellent wood rim play. That subtle long lasting overtone that plays with a mallet comes out strongly when the bowl is spun with a simple stick. The smooth rim means it can be droned easily at high volume. A wand strongly spins the next high.. With overtones at A#5, A6, F7, A#7.
