Tiny Adorned Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a super high D5

9173 Tiny Adorned Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a super high D5

Tiny thick Manipuri with a broad outer facing rim. The bowl has clear artwork and a clean brassy finish, a really beautiful piece. Pulsing super high D5 primary tone with a twirling overtone That activity is what greets you at the start but quickly takes a back seat to the much more solid1700 Hz overtone. Very resonant, with good longevity for such a small high bowl. The sustain is helped by the thickness. Manipuri this high are extremely rare. The rim is pure primary tone, the flared out rim doesn’t provide much gripping area. Basic wood only, you can get it going nicely but need to keep spinning as there is not much rim sustain. With overtones at G#6, D7.
