Tiny Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a high pitched cacophony

8728 Tiny Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a high pitched cacophony

Flare lipped Manipuri with extensive exterior artwork and dark patina. This old style bowl is worn entirely smooth inside. Initially cacophanous, the bowl quickly settles down to reveal a main fluttering overtone. That overtone has quite interesting legs, lasting much longer than you might expect based on how quickly the rest of the sounds disappear. The rim takes a bit of time to get going, the reward being that C#6 overtone. Only works with the hardest wands. With overtones at C#6, C7, D8.
