Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a complex pattern of oscillations

9151 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a complex pattern of oscillations

Large Manipuri with brassy patina and the echoes of extensive original artwork. Balanced soundscape where the bass features a complex pattern of oscillations while the overtone is steady. This is basically a two tone soundscape where both continue through the excellent sustain. A really big stick is best to move the rim on this thicker than average bowl. Soft bass and strong overtone. With overtones at G#4, G#5, D#6.
