1. Best S 9 Small Very High Mallet single tap.
2. Rim Play: N101 Small Ringing Stick wood

Thick and heavy small Manipuri with deep clear inner circles. The exterior has a rough finish like a cast, though you can see the hammermarks. Unusual bowl. Acquired in 2015. Interesting resonant soundscape, unusual timbre for a singing bowl. Not much longevity but quite nice while it lasts. Many overtones make up the resonant sound. Simple rim play, overtone with wood. With overtones at B5, A#6, F7.
