8833 Tiny Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with rich initial complexity

Tiny Manipuri with worn but clear artwork inside and out. A fine old style bowl. Rich initial complexity, lots of harmony, lots of notes is followed by a simplification down to two harmoniously arranged notes. Bass rim play is there but weak, Wood on the rim is stronger, scratchy high with a simple stick. Real power and complexity that plays quite a bit smoother with a hard wand (end recording 2) which is definitely worth buying with this bowl if you like the highs. With overtones at C#6, B6, G7, D8.
