3079 Very Rare Large Thick Adorned Antique Thadobati Lingam Singing Bowl #3079

1. Best L1 Large Soft White Felt Mallet followed by L 2 single taps.
2. Rim Play: N103 Large Ringing Stick leather followed by FP Ebony Wand

Rare thick large lingam bowl. The shape is rounder than most Thadobati. The lingam is prominent, surrounded by circles and matched underneath the bowl by an indentation. The indentation matches the patina of the bowl – which is dark, almost black in places and rich. This matching patina is part of the verification that this is a genuine antique. The bowl also has a broad inner facing rim. The exterior surface is smooth underneath the patina from much hand wear. A rare collector’s piece, very few of these bowls surface in any given year. Sweet and simple sound, only two strong notes. Harmony is very good, longevity weak. The bowl is responsive initially, different mallets eliciting a higher or lower starting point, but all end up in the same place. Fine rim play, as is fitting a simple soundscape what comes off the rim is the fundamental. It sings leather, wood or massive wand, leather being smoother. Rim longevity exceeds mallet. A tiny wand roughly teases out the overtone. With overtones at B5, A#6, F#7.
