Antique Thadobati Lingam Singing Bowl with a mysterious cursive inscription

2020 Antique Thadobati Lingam Singing Bowl with a mysterious cursive inscription

A very unusual thick old lingam, Thadobati shape. This bowl was a very prominent lingam, the maker put a lot of metal into the bottom of the bowl to form it. Originally elaborately etched the makings are almost all worn off. Somewhere along the line a representative of the British Empire named Coogan had their name etched into the bowl – in cursive. Curious. The bowl has been polished, one of a kind. Clear and penetrating soundscape, what you might expect a lingam bowl to do. The tones are solid, focused on the close to 432 Hz natural A. Nice harmony and ok sustain. When struck firmly a more active ultra high overtone can be discerned. The rim tends to the primary tone, to play it with leather a larger stick is recommended, a smaller stick will play the same with wood. The ebony wand is the way to sing out the next highs. With overtones at D6, C#7, . Perfect A above Middle C (432 Hz Scale) – 432 Hz.
