Exceptional Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with resonant mix of notes

9124 Exceptional Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with resonant mix of notes

Very Large Manipuri with elaborate old etching peering through dark patina. This bowl is heavy for its size, feels solid and substantial without having thick walls. A deeply resonant bowl, what you might expect from a thicker bowl. Not only is the bowl resonant but it plays with premium harmony. The tones area mix of very slow and very fast oscillations, a real mind stretching soundscape. Longevity is excellent. Rim play is a wonder, the rich tones and mixed periodicity, all easily played with a simple ringer. An extraordinary, exceptional bowl. With overtones at G4, F#5.
