Exceptional Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with an excellent sustain

9126 Exceptional Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with an excellent sustain

Large smooth thick Manipuri with bright brassy patina and some darker spots inside. Incredibly harmonious soundscape where the tones play consistently together throughout an excellent sustain. Very smooth to match the tactile impression. Spectacular rim play – both how fast to volume and the sustain that naturally flows from each of the notes. The leather ringer plays the deep bass purely with exceptional power. That same leather plays the primary overtone with strength and a small ebony tiny wand sings the next two or even three notes with huge volume. An all around great sounding bowl in a very simple looking package. With overtones at D5, C#6, C#7.
