Thick Antique Mani Singing Bowl with a fluttering main tone

6052 Thick Antique Mani Singing Bowl with a fluttering main tone

Thick Mani with very worn artwork and a wide rim. The bowl has bright consistent patina. This is likely a very old bowl as its level of wear takes a long time. The age of the bowl, as well as its fantastic soundscape, is supported by the fact that it contains an unusual number of metals – titanium, nickel, zinc and iron in addition to the usual copper and tin. A fluttering main tone has a bit of initial help from a 6th octave overtone that drops out and leaves that active note to continue on through its very good sustain. Premium harmony. Great resonance. Fine rim play with wood, especially the massive yew wand which grips the rim nicely. The relatively smooth side can take a bit of effort with leather – still excellent results as you can hear in the recording. We found this bowl in Nepal in 2012. With overtones at G6, F7.
